“You are doing great! I’ve been an AWHONN fetal monitoring instructor for over 10 years, and I still appreciate your explanations. I’m happy that we agree on most points because most of my experience has been using AWHONN information. That’s why I was interested in your course. I wanted another perspective. I am not disappointed!” -Class participant
