We've 3 weeks to go to the due date and The Baby Academy has us as ready as we'll ever be! We've done every one of the classes and they've helped us out so much. The platform is so easy, the midwives and teachers are second to none and the content is very well put together. Slick operation

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.

My husband and I loved our experience with Baby Academy US. Amber was very sweet and interactive. She answered every question we had. We enjoyed the breaks she gave us throughout. We took notes the whole time and we are excited to look back at slides/presentation for future reference. Will recommend this class to future mamas and friends!

This online course was incredibly informative and kept our attention the entire day. It was just what we needed, well rounded and touched on not only labor/delivery but the 4th trimester and health/safety/CPR. Thanks again

This was very informative and so happy to have taken the class. Money well spent. Also, Odessa was great and answering every question even when there seemed like a lot of them as all questions were good. I feel more prepared as a first time mama.

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.
