What our customers say about us

  • Raluca VilauRaluca Vilau

    All the classes were absolutely amazing. The midwifes explained everything so well, they were so knowledgeable, empathetic and made us feel much more confident as first time parents. I honestly could not recommend these classes more. And the fact that you get the notes after and some useful links is a big bonus. Thank you for being there for us and for offering all of these classes for free.

    I’ve had a great experience with The Baby Academy, I have completed multiple free courses and even purchased their Ultimate Antenatal Class and had an amazing time! I took the class with Kim and she was very helpful. I had multiple questions and she answered them all thoroughly. Although I'm not a first time mum, there was so much I didn't know so I'm glad I took this course; there isn't anything I would change or improve on! The courses are also very affordable which I love. After each course you’re sent the recording as well as tons of information (even with the free courses).

  • Francesca MirandaFrancesca Miranda

    My husband and I recently completed an online Hypnobirthing course at The Baby Academy, and it was an incredible experience. As first-time parents, we gained a wealth of valuable information and practical techniques. The course was exceptionally well-organised and thoroughly covered all the essential topics. We highly recommend these classes to anyone preparing for childbirth. Thank you!

    Both presenters were fantastic and informative of the sleep care and breastfeeding classes we attended. Classes had great content, links and Q&A time. Can't believe these were free! As first time parents to be, my husband and I were thrilled with how great these classes have been that we've even got another couple of friends signed up too! Thank you so much!
