I have done 3 free workshops with ye so far and I love the information being shared. The baby academy is the best thing I have followed so far as this is my first pregnancy and I have learned a lot because of ye. It is very helpful too to get the slides after to refer back to them. Every midwife seems to know so much on their topics and I couldn't fault a single one. Keep doing what ye are doing and thank you for giving us the classes we need..."

We recently did our antenatal class with Sonia through The Baby Academy and it was brilliant . As first time parents we were feeling quite nervous about our journey ahead and we now feel so much more confident, prepared and are so well informed as what to expect. Sonia was so informative and really kept our attention by making the class thoroughly enjoyable throughout. She was so reassuring and light hearted during the class that it really has put any nerves at ease and also answered any questions we had . Being able to look back and re watch our class is also such a bonus for when our little one is here . As soon as the class was over I straight away signed up for the other classes and workshops that the baby academy has to offer. It’s great to be able to do these classes from the comfort of your own home . We can’t recommend them enough .

Jean is just fab! My partner and I got so much from the course. It is so practical and informative; we feel very reassured. The stories that Jean peppered through the day really made the information real for us and kept us engaged. The practical tips too mean so much to use as first-time parents.I did the baby care workshop with Jean a couple of months ago and straight away booked this course because of her enthusiasm and passion.I have already recommended the other courses I have done with Baby Academy to pregnant friends, I will definitely be recommending this fab antenatal class, and the wonderful Jean, to them too.

Answering the Questions from Expectant Parents

Since starting The Baby Academy, we have had hundreds of questions from first time expectant parents. From nappies, to diet, from baby finances to labour pains…and everything in between. All these questions might leave you wondering…where do I start?! But don’t worry, we’ve got your back and cut out that work for you. We have saved all our answers as blog posts so all you new Mums out there can find the answers from our expert Midwives.
