Why Our Customers Love Us

Started with the 2-hour Baby Care virtual session and it was so hugely helpful. The midwife who ran the session, Emily, was fantastic. After this first session, we immediately signed up for the one-day full course that will also cover labor, birth and potential complications, your first 100 days as a parent, and baby first aid. Very grateful for this resource as we prep for our first baby!

I am always hesitant with classes that I find online for FREE no less but i must say i HIGHLY recommend this! im definitely more of a 'the less you know' person and this was NOT overwhelming for me at all and my husband watched along and said same thing. Thank you so much Baby Academy!

My husband and I attended the free Baby Care Workshop. I had recently taken a free workshop from a different company that was just a sales pitch and didn’t reach me anything so I was hesitant about taking another freebie but I’m so glad we did! The instructor taught us a lot and was incredibly responsive. I can’t count the number of times that I said “I’m so glad we took this because I didn’t know that” (like about products that are marketed as being safe for babies but are actually dangerous). We immediately signed up for the Ultimate Childbirth Class and that got us a discount on the Ultimate Breastfeeding and Ultimate First Aid classes so we plan on signing up for those as well. Highly, highly recommend!!!

This is my 3rd Baby Academy class. I took the Baby Safety and Baby Care one already. I really, really enjoyed the Childbirth Class and so glad I took it. Emily was awesome and as much as I loved the other instructors, she has been my favorite by far.I wasn't planning on taking any classes since my fiancé has had 3 babies prior to our first (and my first child), so I was relying on his breadth of knowledge (which he does have a lot of lol), but thought I should also be prepared. I feel so much more confident and more aware of what will happen. I was also recently told I may need a c-section, so having this class and knowing what I might expect has been a great introduction and I feel less scared if this is the route my OB decides to take.Have a wonderful & safe holiday! And see you in Jan for the Breastfeeding class!

Got a lot of great information and advice for things we didn't even think to ask about or know about. It's also great to hear other people's questions and get the answers for anything you wouldn't think to ask or know about.

I signed up for the birth class, It was a very informative, the instructor was really patient and eloquent- she gave us breaks in between and answered all questions posted. I thought I’d be bored through the 9:30a-4:30p but I wasn’t. I learnt a lot and would recommend especially for first time parents!

I’m so glad I took this class. It truly covered a lot of important information for new and experienced parents/caregivers. My husband and I are first-time parents of a 7 month-old baby boy, so it definitely gave me peace of mind learning everything that she shared today in class!

This is a great class! Definitely worth the time and money. I feel more confident in my choices when it comes to deciding what I want and what the baby needs. The educator Rachel delivered information in a way where you feel like you have options and the ball is in your court. Not pushy and no pressure to choose this or that ( completely unbiased) I highly recommend this class for new moms even second time or third mom's. Maybe you'll find out something you didn't know before or would like to try! Thank you baby academy!

Really helpful resource, especially for first time moms or moms who need a refresher! Also great if your partner is feeling like they want to be more involved and learn more information. The rates are reasonable and they are flexible with covering the classes through insurance, HSA, etc.I took the Baby Care and Birthing Classes. Both teachers were friendly, engaging and willing to answer any and all questions! Thanks again for these training during this exciting yet nerve wracking time.

Excellent course! I'm a Women's Health Nurse Practitioner but my husband and I are first time parents, so I wanted a course we could do together. I learned quite a lot that I'll be passing on to my patients in practice. He's also feeling confident about tackling fatherhood.Dr. Elle was awesome. Thank you!

Loved the class! Started with the 2 hour free class which led me to booking this one... worth every penny! Emily was so knowledgeable and my husband and I feel like we learned so much. We feel prepared and are armed with the right questions to ask as we approach our upcoming delivery, Thanks to all!

Emily was a fantastic instructor! I learned so much and thought the class was well paced and the appropriate number of breaks were given. The structure is great with questions after each section - less distractions/people chiming in allow you to focus on the material. I like Emily's/The Baby Academy's approach that while this is what is recommended, every baby and situation is different so things will vary person to person and family to family.I wish Emily could consult with me through the rest of pregnancy and when baby is here!

We took both the 2 hour baby care class and the 7 hour birthing class online. The birthing class is long but the information was well paced. Both classes were very helpful for us as expecting parents. Odessa was an excellent presenter. The baby academy sends you slides and resources after the fact, and you have the option to watch the class again.
