The Baby Academy from Home

We run Live Online Childbirth Classes for 1st time expectant parents across the USA

The Baby Academy Online Childbirth Class

This class, also known as a Birthing Class, has been developed by Senior Practicing Nurse-Midwives and is delivered on our tailored virtual platform, where you can use the live chat to ask questions in real time. You will also receive a recording of the class which you can re-watch, pause and rewind as you wish for 6 months. You will be given full access to The Baby Academy resource page, where you will get a number of practical videos and a host of other valuable content, for the arrival of your baby. This online class covers everything from labor and birth, to breastfeeding and safe sleep. You will have the ability to ask any questions you may have regarding your pregnancy and Covid-19. We believe that Baby First Aid is one of the most important things you can learn as an expectant parent, so unlike other birthing classes we’ve included it as part of the online class at no extra cost.

SPECIAL OFFER: $129 per couple

Free Online Workshop

We are also running a FREE Live Online Workshop. This 2-hour workshop will cover all things Baby Care.

Just attended a great class here at the Baby Academy US. I really enjoyed the course content from start to finish and found it really easy to understand. The live demonstrations really helped! The content was really well laid out and they did a good job at covering the more difficult topics. Their class is excellent value for money and I can't recommend them enough.

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.

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

I found the course excellent, so detailed and being a first-time mom Susan really put my mind at ease about a few topics. She has a very calm and relaxed way of presenting and having to cover so many topics in one day, really made it very interesting. I loved the way there was time for lots of Q&A’s after each section. As this gave an opportunity to recap on certain items, which was very useful. The course was recommended to me by a friend and I will certainly be encouraging any soon to be moms to sign up.Thanks again!

We attented the Baby Acadamy Ante Natal Class and honestly I couldn't recommend it enough. It was very informative and as first time parents who are complete novices we found it so useful and we feel so much more prepared now than we did before the class. We loved Louise's informal laid back presentation style and enjoyed the day aswel as learning loads.Definitely worth the effort and the money, but some can claim that back so you've nothing to lose. Go for it!

Great class with lots of valuable information, lots of little tips and tricks were suggested. The class was small so individual attention was offered and plenty of questions could be asked and answered.

Sue was knowledgable, patient and approachable. She had a really nice approach to sharing knowledge on the day and all the content was kept summarised but with an appropriate level of detail and an emphasis on positivity.

We found Ali really good in the Galway baby first aid class. Great interaction with the group. Great demonstrations & a bubbly personality. Overall it was a great experience and we felt more confident afterwards.

We travelled from Cork to attend the hypnobirthing day course and were very happy with what was delivered. I was slightly nervous it would be based on airy fairy methods and my husband was very sceptical but all the information was science and medical based. Everything Sue delivered made so much sense and she also gave us the tools to implement the techniques in a practical way. I've spent the last 6 months stressing about how I'm going to attempt our 2nd birth without an epidural and having it be a positive experience this time round, but now I'm quite confident that I can use what was given to us on the course to have a good chance of that happening. Even if someone does want a birth with an epidural etc. I would still highly recommend Sue's course as the best chance to have a calm, happy birthing experience.

The course was great value and really practical, covering a wide range of issues. Niamh was really clear and helpful so I’m much more confident now that if my baby needs first aid, I’ll know what to do. You also get a set of notes to look over when you get home.

Have been to two ante natal classes with Jean from the baby academy and found both fantastic. As a first time Mam it was informative & instructive but also practical. Would highly recommend & currently looking forward to the baby first aid class. Thanks to the team at baby academy.

A huge thank you to Sue for an amazing HypnoBirthing class. The class covered everything we could possibly need to know and we feel totally prepared to bring our little one into the world now. Knowledge is definitely power and I would highly recommend the HypnoBirthing class for all parents-to-be.

We cannot recommend this class enough as first time parents we were completely clueless about everything. Sue presented the class in lovely way and her knowledge was incredible. We went in feeling completely unsure and intimidated by what lay ahead when it comes to giving birth. Both myself and my husband left feeling very positive and really prepared for the big day. The class Completely exceeded our expectations.

My wife and I attended a baby first aid course which we found very useful. Elaine had lots of useful tips and practical advice, and answered all our questions effectively. I found having proper neonatal as well as adult CPR dummies and AEDs you could actually use very informative. Coincidentally, we also attended a 4 week hypnobirthing class in the Rotunda with Sue which was also reassuring and informative.

Myself, my wife and 3 month old attended the sleep well for babies course with Erica. The course was very informative and we have put a lot of the guidance into practice which is improving sleep (for both baby and parents!). Highly recommend
