She also brings up topics surrounding HG that I had never thought about.”

    “This course not only provided information, but compassion and understanding for those women who suffer from HG. After completing this class, no midwife will look at her client suffering from HG the same, no ignore her complaint. ”

    “I learned much from this course. The only negative point was a technical issue where I found I could not increase the volume and Silke's voice was difficult to articulate at times, otherwise, she had wonderful current information.”

    “I feel like the instructor for this course would benefit from some additional practice with presentations. She covered the material and was clear and concise. She was professional in her demeanor. The material presented was a bit more superficial than I would have liked and I, personally, am not a big fan of anecdotal evidence. There was a bit of a disjointed feeling to the presentation which is common when the speaker is addressing a new topic that they have not yet felt mastery of, or if they are new to speech presentations. I did not feel like she was presenting as an authority on the topic and there's a vague sense of needing to confirm what I learned rather than feeling as though I had learned new material. ”
