This is an excellent introduction to the basics for anyone thinking about breeding or first time breeders. It gives you a good list of the basic whelping materials you will need. I recommend completing all the Midwoofery advanced courses after this introduction, to gain a better understanding of the entire process.

Ji has very direct And foundational information in this course. She not only describes the hows, but also the whys of whelping. She includes things that may not be thought of- being prepared; is there gas in the car for a late night vet run?!

I thought the course was very helpful. I've been breeding for 3 years but there was a good bit of information in this course that I didn't know or things I had heard of but didn't know how to do. Thank you for including videos so that we got to "experience" a technique and not just read how to do it.
