We’re here to help

We had an idea to modernise parental courses in Ireland. Our aim is to provide the parents of today with the most up to date knowledge, whilst leaving them in control of making their own decisions.

A New and Convenient Baby Academy

Courses in antenatal care, hypnobirthing, breastfeeding preparation, postnatal wellness, baby first aid and a course to help parents establish positive sleep practices for their baby. We understand that the parents of today lead busy lives, so have designed 1-day courses, taking place on Saturdays in venues nationwide.

Outstanding Education

So we went on a mission to find the most well-loved and passionate instructors in Ireland. Our team of midwives, consultants and health professionals are leading experts in their field. After listening to parents, we have designed courses that slice through the overwhelming and fragmented information on the internet and elsewhere.

Unbiased, Supportive and Fun

For our pre-natal courses, we bring together like-minded and expectant parents, whose babies are due around the same time. Working passionately and thoughtfully, we ensure parents feel relaxed and are prepared for the life-changing journey ahead, and gain a brand new set of friends to share it with.
