Great information and well-organized.

by Katelin Halligan
This class was full of clear, well-organized, and up-to-date information. I also appreciate how easy it was to navigate the class/website. All of the classes I've taken through HIVE have been fantastic and worth the time and money spent.

Excellent information, sound not great

by Jennifer Larson
I loved the information and packet with this class. The value of the information is very important to midwives. Appreciate the layout and design of the information as well as the online video editing. Disappointed in the audio quality. Even with my speakers turned all the way up, I still missed a few parts due to the poor audio quality of the recording. The caption text on the first few helped a lot, and wish there was some on all the videos. Next time, advise using a mic, and audio equipment/program upgrade. This may determine my future purchases of classes. But, feel the content was superb!! Just wish I could hear better. Any way to increase audio sound on the video and repost? Jennifer ~ Thank you for the feedback! We are troubleshooting the sound issues you experienced. ~ Jesica

This was a very detailed course on jaundice. It was very informative. I was hoping for slightly more in depth info on when to treat. Brandy ~ Be sure to post in the discussion area with any questions you have about treatment or anything else, I'll be sure that Holly sees them! ~ Jesica
