Happy Parents

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.

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.

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 ☺️

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
