Live and Interactive
The class is live and takes place on our tailored online platform. Attendees have the ability to ask questions in live-chat and this best replicates a real-life class. You do not require a video or microphone, as you are not required to be seen or to speak at the class. You can ask any questions you have in the live chat and our Expert Instructor will be delighted to answer any queries you have.
Access for 6 Months
The live class conveniently runs over the course of 1-day , with numerous breaks to stretch the legs, have a cup of coffee and have lunch. You will receive a recording of the class, which you can re-watch, pause and rewind as you like for 6 months.
You will receive access to our resource page, where you can access a host of practical videos and content. You will also receive a copy of the day’s notes, which you can refer back to on your phone, laptop or desktop at anytime.
Virtual Tour of Birthing Suite
You will receive access to a virtual tour of a birthing suite, as we understand hospital tours are currently cancelled.
Pregnancy and COVID-19
Attendees can ask questions at any time, giving you the ability to ask any questions you may have regarding your pregnancy and Covid-19.
Learn from experts
Great education all start with one thing: great teaching. Our emphasis is on the practical, and our instructors draw on the very latest evidence-based research. Knowing that you are learning from experts gives you confidence to make the decisions that work best for you and your baby.
The Baby Academy was created to help first-time expectant parents navigate the often overwhelming amount of content around pregnancy and early parenthood. The online class covers everything from labour and birth to breastfeeding and early parenthood. 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 chilbirth classes, we’ve included it as part of the online class at no extra cost.
