What people are saying about BEST®

"I drove to the workshop feeling a little silly for even coming b/c I was considering leaving midwifery. I've had two traumatic births in my first year, I'm realizing my apprenticeship didn't prepare me well, my confidence was lacking so much that I couldn't even call myself a midwife easily. 

After completing it, I walked away a different midwife. Yes, I am a midwife and I know how to handle scary situations. I am equipped and ready. I think this training probably will become a turning point in my midwifery story.

Thank you for so thoughtfully framing the hands on portion as a place FOR us to learn whatever we need and not just for us to use to check off that we've attended/performed. It really was created to meet our individual needs, whatever they were when we walked in the doors. Thank you, thank you, thank you. May God bless you rich!"

"This workshop was exactly what I needed to overcome some traumatic births."

"I loved that I could tell Andrea exactly what I needed to practice and she led it."

"I really appreciated the accessibility of the online course, as well as the in person portion. Being able to pace myself and take in the online material helped my learning -- I could take breaks as needed and let the material sink in in ways that are difficult when all the material is presented all at once in an in person-only format. It worked really well for me."

"The in depth review we receive in this workshop is need for the safety of our patients and our livelihoods. Your workshops are a blessing!"

“BEST was fantastic, it was hands down the best CEU course I have ever taken in my 25 years of being a Nurse-Midwife”

Don't let the sun set on your Birth Emergency Skills, take a BEST® program and be Prepared for the Unexpected!

 

When you are well equipped and prepared to handle anything, you can relax and sink in, to fully supporting the birthing mother before you.
