Terms and Conditions

Our instructors only give general educational advice about topics such as pregnancy, childbirth, new baby care and breastfeeding.

Individual particular advice on your own current pregnancy and wellbeing cannot be given under any circumstances and clients must take queries about their own personal health or pregnancy to their Community Midwife, GP, Obstetrician, Lactation Consultant, or other appropriate health professional.

The Baby Academy cannot accept responsibility or liability for any loss, damage or injury to any person or property arising out of or resulting from attendance at our classes.

The Baby Academy classes have been designed as a supplement to the information, advice and general instruction offered by the NHS. All class material provided is for general information purposes only and should not under any circumstances be construed in any way as being particular individual medical advice or instruction.

Classes are delivered by independent consultants.

The Baby Academy reserves the right to decline any application to attend any of its classes.

If you, or your partner, feel unwell whilst in attendance at the sessions you should immediately seek the advice of your midwife, GP or other appropriate health professional.


Once your payment has been received for our Ultimate Antenatal Class, Ultimate Hypnobirthing Class, Ultimate Breastfeeding Class, or Ultimate Weaning Baby onto Solids Class we will send you a confirmation email.

Cancellations and refunds for our paid classes

Note: The Baby Care, Prepare to Breastfeed, and Baby Safety Workshops and Intro to Hypnobirthing and Introducing Baby to Solids Classes are completely free of charge. The below policy applies to the Ultimate Antenatal Class, Ultimate Hypnobirthing Class, Ultimate Breastfeeding Class, Ultimate Baby First-Aid Class, and Ultimate Weaning Baby onto Solids Class.

We will acknowledge receipt of your cancellation by email within 7 days of receipt.

If you cancel within 7 days of purchase, you are entitled to a full refund. Any cancellation requests made after this are not eligible for a refund. Under exceptional circumstances, we can offer a full refund at any point up until the course begins. Due to scheduling, The Baby Academy incurs significant costs up to 4 months prior to any class being run, so customers are asked to consider the knock-on impact a refund can cause.

Unforeseen circumstances

If for any reason The Baby Academy needs to reschedule a session you will be given as much notice as possible. In these circumstances, no refund will be offered. However, under exceptional circumstances, we can offer a full refund at any point.

Under exceptional circumstances, we may need to cancel your booking. If we do we will always try to offer you a suitable alternative. If you choose not to accept this, we will offer you a full refund.
