Happy Parents

Did a really informative free 2 hour antenatal class. Rebecca was amazing, explained everything clearly, was funny and friendly and you can tell how much she loves what she does and really cares about it.

We really enjoyed the full day antenatal course. Ellie did an amazing job! Thank you so much. So glad we signed up for this course, as it is much more detailed than the standard NHS antenatal classes we tried at first. We highly recommend it to expectant parents!
Amanda Badger

Really helpful course and would recommend for anyone who is having a baby, looking after a baby or looking to have a baby to take this course.

What an amazing tool for someone like me. Everything is covered using medical research, personal experience and just generic advice. I loved it. You can take on board what fits you. Nothing is pushed upon you. I highly recommend to all first time mums. I learned a lot and also gained more understanding and confidence. It actually encourages you to enjoy this beautiful journey! 🙂

The courses are very clear and have good explanations and recommendations. Midwives are very thorough (and efficient) in answering all the questions within the remit of the course topic. Would reccomend!

Very informative class, and I'd recommend it to everyone I know.Sophie was really passionate and informative, and we learned so much.If you're a parent-to-be and was afraid that you don't know enough - just like we did - then this is the class for you!

Thank you for the session Rebecca.I will remember what you’ve said about the contractions that will take me closer to my baby. Also I will remover that embracing the pain is good. Really good tips about the oxytocin as well.

We absolutely loved this course. The free 2 hour baby care workshop was really informative, so we had high expectations for the full day antenatal course, and it didn't disappoint. The midwife leading the session was so professional, reassuring and knowledgable. Compared to other online antenatal classes we looked at or attended, we found this one the most comprehensive and mirrored NHS advice. We asked a few questions in the chat and they were all answered in so much detail. Also super handy to have the presentation, videos and tonnes of other resources for the next 6 months that we can refer back to. This isn't a course to connect with other parents, but that wasn't what we were looking for. Can't wait for the breastfeeding course now!!Thanks again!

Fantastic service from the Baby Academy, I’ve done two courses now with Rachel and both have been incredibly helpful, she’s got so much knowledge and answers all the questions you have, definitely well worth the money and if I could give more than 5* I would!

Fantastic online all day course with Midwife Ellie. Super informative and lots of practical tips for us as first time parents. We weren’t made to feel pressured to do anything, and it was stressed throughout it’s your birth, YOUR choice!Would 100% definitely recommend to friends and family.

Lots of useful information. The host Ellie very lovely, kind, and patient. Thank you very much for the opportunity to get my concerns off my head. I'm looking forward to applying what I've learned today and I am very excited and I am feeling more confident now about handling situations that may occur. There were a lot of myths that I heard around me, some of them from people without experience or from people that they think they know everything etc. Or people who think that what was good for them, is good for yourself as well. But now I can easily make the difference and I can distinguish what is myth and what is something for real. It's better when you can hear the truth or confirmation from an expert. Especially when is about your little baby. You will want the best for your little one. Thank you again and I will warmly recommend you in the future! Lots of love ♥️

As first time parents during lockdown we found this course invaluable. The midwife who lead the course, Ellie, had recently had a baby herself, was very knowledgeable and answered everyone’s questions in a friendly professional manner. It truly was an eye opening course which has made us feel more prepared. We did the free ‘baby care’ course and the paid ‘antenatal all- day course which was worth the money and have since recommended it to several friends. Thank you very much BabyAcademy!

Completed the full online workshop and Anne was an amazing teacher. Felt extremely informed and empowered after the sessions. She was so friendly and engaging. Took time to answer all questions and from this I now feel more confident going into the last stage of my pregnancy and more prepared for labor. Thank you Baby Academy, look forward to completing the next online class with you!

The online class was great, really enjoyed it. Sophie and Ghislaine were both very kind and approachable. Definitely feel more prepared of what to expect during birth and labour now. The resource pack and video recordings they send after the class are also really useful. I absolutely love the Baby Academy Instagram page as well, full of handy tips and resources. These classes are a heaven-sent during these Covid times, especially for first-time parents with lots of questions.

What an amazing and informative day course! A huge thank you to our course facilitator and midwife Sophie - she was so knowledgeable, engaging and clear to follow. We definitely feel more prepared for our baby. Thank you so much 🙂

Really good classes, me and my partner did the baby care class which is 2 hours and then decided to do the full day class. As first time parents it can be overwhelming, but with both classes we can safely say that being informed has really made us feel at ease.We had 2 different midwifes, I cannot remember the First Ladies name (sorry) but the second lady was Ellie. They were both amazing, they take their time to go through everything and questions after. With everything virtually at the moment as well that really helped.I have recommended to friends that are pregnant as well and will happily recommend to others too.Thank you baby academy for making both of us feel more relaxed about the rest of the pregnancy and start to parenthood.

I learned so much and I feel so excited now for my baby girl to arrive! Being able to ask questions helped so much - it's so hard at the moment with Covid and feeling isolated. I will definitely be recommending this class!

My husband and I originally signed up for the free online 2 hour baby care workshop as all NHS classes are unfortunately not running. We found it so useful, that we didn’t hesitate to book the full day course which covered everything from labour to baby CPR. Laura provided us with with so much useful information, that we now feel so much more prepared for the arrival of our little one in January. Thanks so much Baby Academy for all your help ☺️
Sophie Gillies

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 🥰
