Frequently Asked Questions about our Pregnancy Course online:
Question one - What does this mean - all online classes?
You login to a classroom online - we usually host at Google Classrooms - you access your course materials - slides and such in the classroom. Will there be videos to watch?What am I actually going to be doing? The power point slides are the main key - you can read through slides, some slides will have links to videos, articles, etc. Otherwise it is all slides. You can access on your phone via the Google classroom. However, it might be easier to see on a tablet or main computer. Discussions are encouraged, but you can opt-to just discuss with husband/partner. If you wish to "listen" to the power point slides - we can make available a reading or audio files for this. (Audio or Webinar is not part of the pilot course - so please understand pilot students will not have this. Thank you.)
Question two - is there a timed class - or can I go as I like?
We offer best of both worlds - you can go at your own pace - but we do have "sessions" that start at certain times for pregnant couples who like "timed sessions". We always take late work - yes you get to do homework! The timed sessions are usually around 6-8 week timed - but you can have longer access!
Question three - what do you mean homework? This is a childbirth class with homework?
We think couples retain more if doing an online class to have homework assignments. It is completely optional to send in - if you do send in and get grades - we will send a certificate of completion of the course to you. Discussion boards, assignments and quizzes are included plus case studies. We think having a certificate to frame gives you a sense of accomplishment!
If doing timed version - how long do I have - how many modules is in the classes?
The pregnancy preparation class is 6 modules. We will be offering a "fast-track" version where you login and have 6-8 week deadlines (We will also give options to finish in 3-4 week if your baby is due soon). We also offer a self-pace for moms that want to do it on their own pace and have more time to do so! Seriously, you could sit down and finish in a few days if you wanted to! The breastfeeding course is around 5 module length and can be done for 5 week before or after baby's birth.
Are there any books? What else do I need to know?
For the Pregnancy course - we require 2 books and the breastfeeding course requires one book - you can purchase separately or pay more up front to include books. Learn more here (page coming soon). We try to keep our pricing reasonable - but also remember to compare it to an in person course. We will be offering a lower cost option for our "tester pilot" students - this offer is good for March-April enrollees only. Learn more here (page) Advantages of online classes - you sign in and get into the class when you want! There is not a specific time you have to be online. We have power-point slides/pdf that you look at - links to websites and videos you can view when you want to! Note; We will offer a timed version - fast-track you may call it for moms that need a deadline system. Want more info fill out the form below to get in on our special deal!!
