My wife and I took the Preparing for Childbirth class. Our instructor Heidi was engaging, gave us the facts we asked for and made sure we were prepared for all the different intricacies of Childbirth. I learned a lot and feel more prepared because of Amma. I would highly recommend taking classes through Amma as a new or soon-to-be parent.
Loved the virtual option! So nice to be 36 weeks pregnant and be at home on the couch comfortable instead of in a classroom. I think this should always be an option.
We’ve also taken other classes in the last month or so from Amma (I picked the three-week preparing for childbirth class to comment on here), and they’ve all been great. With each one, we feel more and more prepared. Thank you!
We could not have asked for a better experience. Jodi was amazing and truly cared for our family. The course was very informative and Jodi made sure to ask for specific questions to cater to our groups' concerns and areas of focus. Would definitely recommend to any new or expecting parents.
The virtual format was good. I’m so happy it was an option!
I love love love Amma. I did prenatal classes, New Mama and Beyond Newborns about 2.5 years ago with my daughter, and now Second Time Mama with my son. I think I’m done having babies, and it feels like the end of an era to be done at Amma. I just sent a birth announcement in the mail that says this too, but thank you for supporting me so well, so that I can support my babies. I’m a stay at home mom, I love being a mom, but the transition to motherhood was intense and difficult at times for me. Thank you for being the ones to support that journey. You are doing incredibly important work.
I honestly don’t think I would have learned any differently or any more being in person vs doing the class virtually. We were super engaged the whole time and got everything out of the class that we wanted to.
This class was amazing. I would recommend this to any new mom. I gained valuable knowledge and most importantly, relationships with other new moms.
I absolutely loved this class – I took the First Time Mamas class, so I wasn’t sure if I would find the Second Time Mama class as useful, but it was just as helpful, if not more helpful. I’m so glad I took the class – I learned new things, was reminded of things I’d forgotten, and felt so supported by the other women. It helped me be a better mom and wife during these early months.
Loved how this class encompasses more than just natural birthing options and felt very comprehensive on all the options available especially during this time of unknowns with COVID. Glad we took this class and gained the support of other parents also trying to navigate this strange time.
Our Prenatal class was a wonderful experience! My husband and I both left feeling a lot more confident and had all of our questions answers.
I loved Grandparent's class! It gave me a lot to think about and practical tips for how to be supportive and respectful of the new parents. I am so glad I went!!
My New Mama instructor was an absolute DREAM. I am a pediatrician and learned SO much from her which completely changed my ability to understand, parent, and bond with my baby. Class was always low-stress and supportive and a highlight of my week. I have found so much value out of all of my Amma classes and know I will be back for more!
We liked how engaging the CPR class was! We learned so much more without watching videos, and instead talking about real life situations and practicing the skills. This class was above and beyond our expectations!
