Our Pregnancy and Birth Preparation Courses
“I feel much more confident after the course as I am more informed as to what to expect and able to make decisions rather than just do what the Drs etc are saying without question” Mum
“Before the course I had pre-conceptions that choices were not really available. Now I feel more able to discuss my personal choices with healthcare professionals” Mum
“Lots of commitment, but worth doing!” Mum
“Good fun and interesting!” Dad
“Excellent, extremely helpful, great teacher who listened and didn’t give opinions” Dad
“The main thing I’m going to take away from the course is that there’s no right or wrong in parenting and to feel confident in making our own decisions regarding labour and parenting” Mum
“I felt anxious and scared about labour and birth before the course. After the course I feel a lot less anxious and more positive, and I know more on how to cope” Mum
“[Motherhood] is extremely hard work, but he’s worth every bit of it and I’m constantly using my knowledge from the antenatal classes to help me get through it, so thank you!” Mum
“I had a really positive experience, so thank you! I think all your lessons helped for sure” Mum
“Thanks very much. The classes definitely helped especially when things got a bit traumatic. I would recommend them to anyone having their first child.” Dad
“I found the class to be really informative and you give far more information than I thought you would get at something like this. ” Mum
“I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help and advice, I found the courses so incredibly helpful and really chuffed that we decided to do them – you were great!” Mum
“I’ve learned LOADS of things that haven’t been covered in my training – really glad I was able to observe the course!” 2nd Year Trainee Midwife
“Really enjoyed the course.” Dad
“Thanks for running the course, we really enjoyed it and found it very helpful.” Mum
“We’ve covered so much that it wouldn’t have even occurred to me to think about; I’ve been telling everyone at work just how useful it is and how much I’ve learned from it.” Dad
“Both [partner’s name] and I found the sessions really useful.” Mum
“So much we learnt on the course has helped us, particularly with establishing the feeding and just understanding newborns and their behaviour/needs, so thanks Arlette for equipping us so well!” Mum
“[Partner’s name] and I were both very glad we’d been to your classes when things weren’t going to plan at the end of my pregnancy and through labour. ” Mum
“All your words of wisdom have been put to good use recently as we had our shot at a natural delivery this time – we were grateful we had the sessions with you with the twins even though we weren’t able to put it into practice that time round! Lots of your advice was helpful, we found the sessions really helpful to both pregnancies and births, so pat yourself on the back!” K and S, expectant parents to twins when attending my course, now parents to another beautiful baby and still using what they learned on the course!
“..Happy to recommend these videos personally!”
“Wow! You have laid out a great path to follow and scale the internet marketing mountain!
Your Complete Newbie Training internet marketing videos were so helpful to me in my internet marketing business.
I cannot thank you enough for producing such an easy simple product to help me and my employees understand what it takes to make money on the internet.
Your internet marketing videos were extremely useful in so many ways! I love the fact these videos can help anyone regardless of experience learn what it takes to be a successful internet marketing entrepreneur.
The first video I viewed was Niche Marketing Made Easy and that got me excited and pumped up to view the next. I’ve always had a few ideas floating around in my head on some internet business and your videos have really made them more accessible. It was fantastic, putting everything in simple and easy to understand terms for anyone to understand. Not to mention all the instructions on how to find the products to market using tools like Google Directory and Google Key Word and Google Trends.All of these things have helped skyrocket my creativity and the way I do business on the internet. I was amazed at how little time it took for me to watch the Complete Newbie Training internet marketing videos. In just 20 minutes I was able to watch an entire lesson and implement what I learned into my business that same day!
I was amazed I was able to get through as much material as I did in just two days of watching these videos while multitasking other projects throughout the day. Your presentation format made note taking easy, leaving each screen showing long enough to copy the information down without stopping the video.
Your Press Release video has given me an easy to follow format that has produced awesome results! I have your press release example printed and hanging in my copy room so everyone understands this simple and easy format to follow. We have noticed that more of our press releases are getting printed than ever before.
In addition, your Copy Writing video also has helped all of us in writing better copy which appears to be increasing our sales by leaps and bounds. We also have some of your tips posted next to your Press Release examples and everyone in the company is now using these as a template for their work. Again words can never describe how much your Complete Newbie Training internet marketing videos helped!
Your asking price for the video set is nothing compared to the potential return on investment by actually implementing the material.
The videos are clear and easy to use. For someone who has no experience with internet businesses and marketing, you have laid out a great path to follow and scale the internet marketing mountain. For business owners who get and view the videos, they have a clear advantage over their competition with internet marketing. I would happily recommend these videos.” John Lujan
“This is great stuff for the internet marketing newbie!
Complete Newbie Training is a segmented audio/visual presentation about all things internet marketing.
The videos describe quite a few terms and concepts taken for granted by seasoned internet marketers; explaining the terms and breaking down the concepts into elements that are easy to absorb and understand.
The videos cover essential topics like autoresponders, opt-in emails, blogging to promote products and some of the age-old basics like converting shoppers into customers, creating sales opportunities and what conversion rates are.
The most interesting segment for me was the video module titled Internet Business Optimization Strategies. I felt this module presented fresh information that was unique and outside of the usual information stream for this subject. In particular, I found the use of video recommendations particularly relevant for online marketing strategy.” Helga S.
“Your information is clear, concise, and incredibly useful.
I just finished listening to your Complete Newbie Training Program and am very impressed. As the owner of an e-Business, I had no idea how much I was missing! Your information is clear, concise, and incredibly useful. I have immediately begun investigating Google Trends and the Keyword Tool to enhance my SEO writing and blogging.
The video format with explanatory audio was a great way for me to quickly process a lot of material in short bursts. Over the course of 3 days, I watched all of the lessons. I am a very busy person. I really appreciate the way that you provided only critical information. I don’t have time to wade through irrelevant content or fluff. Your course provides only important facts and advice without any annoying filler.
As a Freelance Writer, my clients often ask me to provide them with press releases, sales copy, and blog entries for their individual marketing needs. By using the techniques recommended in the Complete Newbie Training Program, I will be able to provide my clients with highly effective copy to drive their sales conversion rates. The only point I found to be questionable was the price for outsourcing articles. Depending on the amount of research required, a well-written, SEO friendly article may cost a bit more than you mentioned.
The beauty of this program is the vast scope of the material. At this point, I probably won’t utilize all of the marketing techniques outlined in the course. I will choose the items most appropriate to my current needs and implement them, knowing that I can refer back to the reference material when I am ready to expand. This allows me to take a gradual approach, adding components as I go along. I can, however, see how someone could take the material and run with it, setting up a thorough marketing strategy in very short time.
I was particularly impressed with your emphasis on quality. I’m sure people are sick and tired of receiving spam or discovering that the content they found after clicking on a link is not actually what they needed. If more people used your course, they would realize the value of providing quality information that benefits both the consumer and business owner. Your advice about adding value when using forums and other social networks was right on!
Speaking of social networks, I belong to Facebook and Twitter but haven’t utilized them to promote my business. I just didn’t know how. Your modules on social media have given me some definite ideas on using these outlets to promote my business and drive traffic to my blog. In fact, I plan to update my profile using your advice right away.
One of my favourite features in the system is the links. For each and every section, you provide links to tools that will help me to easily implement the strategies. I can’t stand it when someone gives me great advice but doesn’t provide me with the tools to use it. I am amazed at the number of free utilities out there that will help me realize my goals.
Your marketing advice will certainly be useful in driving traffic to my blog and hopefully to generating new clients. These instructional modules are a great value, and I know that I will return to them time and time again as my business grows.
Anyone interested in learning key marketing techniques for Internet-based businesses should really try the Complete Newbie Training Program. Thank you for the opportunity to learn from an expert.” Dorothy Distefano
“The amount of traffic I am receiving to my website has been incredible! This is because of your video on Social Marketing using Facebook and Twitter. I never realized the power in just those two websites. The amount of traffic we are receiving has tripled since using your Complete Newbie Training internet marketing videos and again I cannot thank you enough for sharing all of this information for such a fair price.
It was incredible I was able to have a new employee who had never been exposed to any internet marketing watch your internet marketing videos and within a week the employee was producing results incorporating the ideas into our business.
This program is great for anyone from novice to pro! I would highly recommend these videos as they have been invaluable to me and my staff. As I mentioned earlier I cannot believe the value I received in these videos and how affordable they were. I hope you continue to produce more of these types of instructional videos as they have been easy and simple to use and understand.
I would be more than happy to recommend these videos personally.” James M. Vera
Praise for our other services
“I needed a quick turnaround on a product launch and Arlette said she could work to my ridiculously short deadline.
I asked for the work by lunchtime and by mid-morning, all the work was there in my inbox!
Not only that, but Arlette sensitively pointed out some errors in my work that I had missed. She took the initiative of putting them right for me (after asking my permission) and did a sterling job working closely with me for several hours until we were both happy with the finished product.
I cannot recommend Arlette highly enough; her attention to detail is exemplary and her motivation and enthusiasm is second to none. I would use her services again (and again and again!)”, Rachelle Strauss, Author, and Director of Gloucestershire Web Designs.
“Impressive Service!“, J Whitehead, Isle of Wight
“I had Arlette Wood [as my doula] but I don’t think she’s carried on as she has a new baby but she was awesome.
I had a doula not to be my birth companion but to support myself and my partner and run around doing things like making tea and coffee, taking over from my oh if he needed the loo etc. 🙂
It was a bonus birth companion and I loved it, she was great and I’ll forever be grateful. She helped with my placenta encapsulation too. 🙂
She didn’t take over the role of my oh or the midwives but was there complementing them, it worked really well. Could rave for hours lol!” Charlotte, doula client in July 2014
