It´s Perfect and concise
By MELISSA ANDREA S. on 30. May 2020 for Antenatal Care

it is concise, it says what is important and what you should know. Explain clearly. I would like more material that expands on the topic, but it´s fine, while I have internet I can search myself

The content is explained well. Easy to understand. Testing after the lecture makes it easy to memorize and retain information.

Interestingly presented
By Salem A. on 13. May 2020 for Antenatal Care

The lectures are to the point and very interestingly presented. It brings the desire to read thoroughly based on the lessons given. Every medical student should watch this especially at this time.

Seems like a list of changes only.
By Shivam P. on 03. May 2020 for Pregnancy Physiology: Gastrointestinal, Renal and Metabolic System

The lecture stated the changes during pregnancy, while cause of the most of them are not explained in it. It would be better if the cause were stated along side to their effect. A medical student really needs them.
