I Joined this class as i will be starting to teach baby massage classes soon and just wanted information on baby CPR mainly.However i feel like i should have done this when i was pregnant with my twins 5 years ago or with my little one 18months ago, i have learnt so much from these last few hours and fully believe every parent to be should sign up for one of these courses.

Updated review: Administrative mishap has been rectified. The matter was escalated and a very professional response was received.We completed 4 courses in total and some of the trainers spend too much time answering a tonne of questions that come through on the online chat, many of which were already covered in the content (people not listening?) or irrelevant questions. Good Instagram content.

I completed the Ultimate Antenatal Course and it was worth every penny. Really lovely lady (Ellie) did a great job answering everyone’s questions and explaining each topic in great detail. Has definitely helped my partner and I feel more prepared and confident for our birth!I also completed their free baby care course which was also fantastic and I highly recommend completing this if you’re unsure about paying anything at first, the free course will definitely convince you it’s worth it though!

This was a really great course! I initially took the two hour free Baby Basics Class and found it really helpful so booked in for the full Antenatal Class. I took this at 36 weeks and am soo glad I did! My assigned midwife has not been very helpful in providing guidance or information on general procedure and process of the labour and birth and I feel so much more prepared and at ease following this course!The instructor was great at communicating, talking through all the topics and answering questions in an unbias and inclusive way as well as being super personable. The amount of resources provided is also incredible. Couldn't recommend this more, especially for those who feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of literature that's out there.

Kay was absolutely brilliant. I am a health professional myself and I couldn't fault the course content or her delivery. The pace was perfect, I expected to hear a lot of information that was just common sense but this was not the case at all - she delivered so much of her knowledge and I learned a huge amount in a relatively short amount of time. It has boosted my confidence hugely. Definitely worth every penny. Many thanks.

This was absolutely excellent, thank you so much. You covered so much and gave practical and reassuring advice. Very good to talk about making a home safe for small children, the range of accidents and situations which can happen and the steps to take if they do happen.We will certainly recommend this course to friends and family with young children/babies and we will also look at other workshops which you offer.Thanks again, this was so helpful!!

We did the free 2 hour course and then followed up by the full one day antenatal class. The instructors, Rebecca and Ghislaine, were great - there was lots of information to take in, but they explained it in such a clear an accessible way. We really appreciate having this online resource, especially during the pandemic.

I have attended the free workshop and baby first aid course. Both of the classes were great.

We did the first aid for babies course and I cannot recommend it enough, especially for first time parents. It was excellent and very informative. We now feel a lot more confident, especially the advice on choking as we have just started weaning our baby!Fiona explained everything very clearly and the slides were easy to follow.
Aimee Potter

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.
Kris Barnes

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
Amanda B.
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.
Kyla Brennan

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!
Chris Barney
Chris B.
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.
Mariana Chindris
Mariana C.
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!
Jemma Anderson
Jemma A.
Thoroughly enjoyed this course, so informative and Ellie is brilliant too. She was able to answer everyone’s questions and was really lovely. I have now left this course feeling much more prepared and armed with knowledge. Thank you so much - keep up the great work.

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!
Danielle Manson
Danielle M.
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.
Katie Bartlett
Katie B.
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.
