Welcome to The Baby Academy

We deliver Live Online Antenatal Classes for 1st time expectant parents across the UK

Convenient 1-day Online Antenatal Class

The class has been developed by Senior Practicing Midwives and is delivered on our tailored virtual platform, where you can ask questions in real time. You will also receive a recording of the class which you can re-watch, pause and rewind as you wish for 6 months. You will be given full access to The Baby Academy resource page, where you will get a number of practical videos and a host of other valuable content, for the arrival of your baby. This online class covers everything from labour and birth, to breastfeeding and safe sleep. You will have the ability to ask any questions you may have regarding your pregnancy and Covid-19. We believe that Baby First Aid is one of the most important things you can learn as an expectant parent, so unlike other antenatal classes we’ve included it as part of the online class at no extra cost.

SPECIAL OFFER: £99 per couple

Free Online Workshop

We are also running a FREE Live Online Workshop. This 2-hour workshop will cover all things Baby Care.

What I liked so much about the baby academy was that the day was so informative and I came away so much more prepared for the birth of my first child! There is so much conflicting information out there! The baby academy’s content is so informative, engaging and I have to say the day spent at the course is fun and enjoyable. I would strongly recommend the baby academy to any parents to be! Myself and my partner are so much more informed😊 thanks a million

I can't recommend this antenatal class enough! Lots of my friends have babies so I thought I knew enough of the basics but Ellie taught me so much useful info. My boyfriend feels so much more confident and can't wait for the little one to come along and put everything we learnt to practice 🥰

We were recommended the free 2 hour session through a friend which was presented by Ellie and after a great session we booked onto the full day session.The full day session was hosted by Laura which was very informative and well presented. Laura kept the pace at a good level and kept us engaged throughout. We appreciated the time taken and are pleased that we attended.Thank you baby academy!

Myself and my husband are expecting our first child. During lock down we were worried we were not prepared to care for our new born or birth. Thanks to the Baby Academy we now feel prepared and full of confidence going forward. We took part in the full day online live course. It was a great session, full of key and vital advice about birth, medication available during labour, baby first aid, breast and bottle feeding and sleep; all of which has not been available to us throughout the current lockdown from our local anti natal classes. It was a great way for working parents to access advice on a weekend.Friendly, warm and welcoming.All resources shared after course including notes and offers of further support. Couldn’t recommend the team at Baby Academy more highly.

Brilliant class. After attending the free online session and finding out my local antenatal class had been cancelled, it was a 'no brainer' to book onto the online day class. So glad I did. Ellie was a great instructor and her upbeat personality helped me power through the third-trimester tiredness. They went through the class at a steady pace and allowed question sessions using the online chat function. Very reasonable price for the quality and content of the course.

An excellent online antenatal course which my husband and I found incredibly useful and informative.As a first time Mum I had a lot of questions which were answered in detail during the course and during the Q and A sessions.I was disappointed that I couldn't attend antenatal classes due to the pandemic but this online course has boosted my confidence and equipped me for labour and parenting.I would highly recommend.

A fantastic day course which has been very informative. Ghislaine had a fantastic approach to sharing such detailed information that is so important for first-time mums.This course has been worth every penny, especially under such difficult and uncertain times. Thank you for helping me to have more of an insight into labour and everything else.Many thanks
