Hi Geraldine, Thank you so much for taking the time to teach us about infant CPR and safety on Saturday via Zoom. We learned a lot and I feel better knowing what to do in case anything should ever happen. Your class was very informative and it was wonderful to meet you. I hope you had a great rest of your weekend. Be well! Thanks again, Emily-
Geraldine, Thank you!! We all found the class incredibly helpful and your perspective was educational as well as reassuring. Even with the limitations of zoom, I would absolutely recommend this class to anyone I knew! I actually think keeping the class small was particularly helpful for Zoom as it allowed for a free flowing conversation and asking questions with ease.-
Thank you! Geraldine's infant safety class was just what we needed as we navigated our first few weeks with our newborn. We were able to really understand the steps we would need to take in case of an emergency. We also got a wealth of other information about SIDS and things to look for with our new baby. Geraldine did a wonderful job incorporating videos into her Zoom class which helped us to visualize each step. She also took the time to answer any additional questions we had and explained anything if we were unsure about a certain step or part. Taking this class was over Zoom was extremely convenient for us, especially with a newborn at home! Thank you Geraldine!-
Geraldine - Thank you very much! It was a great class and we all learned so much. I believe we all definitely feel better prepared now in case of an emergency. I certainly will be practicing on a regular basis! I personally, thought the class was great! My husband and I really liked how you walked us through different scenarios and were able to individually practice with you helping us. I have already told some of my mom friends about the class and how wonderful and informative it was!! Thanks so much.- Colleen
Thank you so much! We really enjoyed the class and found it incredibly helpful!- Larissa M.
Hi Geraldine - Thank you so much for the training session that you provided to us! After you left, everyone commented that they feel much more prepared if anything should happen (God forbid). Everyone was so appreciative of your patience in both instructing and answering our questions. We will definitely continue to review the information! Thank you for everything!- Rebecca
Really enjoyed the class as well. Would highly recommend to any parents / grandparents/ caretakers.- Daniel K.
Geraldine, I can't thank you enough for the wonderful class you taught us tonight! We learned so much. I'm really grateful to you. Thank you again!!! Lisa-
Hi Geraldine, Thank you so much for such an informative evening on Friday! We thoroughly enjoyed meeting you and all of the knowledge you had to offer us. Those life-saving tips are certainly invaluable. We will all be reviewing the CPR and first-aid procedures, so that we have everything down pat. I've also updated my secondary first-aid kit already, which I plan to keep in the car. Again, we appreciate you coming over and providing us with such a comprehensive lesson! Kind regards, Dana S.-
Geraldine - thank you so much for today’s class. Everyone thought it was great! You were thorough and very responsive to questions. The in-home aspect was especially appreciated. I hope I never need to use the skills I learned today, but I definitely feel much better equipped to deal with these types of emergencies if I need to. Thanks again!- Nicole P.
Thank you so much for a wonderful class. All of us were amazed at the new CPR standards. Your Zoom class was wonderful and extremely helpful for us. You made us feel comfortable and gave us enough time to digest everything and ask questions as you went along.- Nicole
