I have just returned from London having completed the Level 3 Maternity nurse course. What a wonderful weekend! I can honestly say that it is the best course I have ever attended, and I have done many over the years. The course is delivered so well and the topics covered are up to date and very informative. I would highly recommend anyone who looks after babies or is interested in a career as a Maternity nurse to apply through Babyem. Well done all of you and thank you! A special thank you to Lyndsey who made the two days even more memorable by her warm and witty approach!! K H Mac, May 2016
I have done a few courses with Babyem, and I cannot recommend them highly enough. The courses provide you with the knowledge needed to further your skills when working within the childcare environment. They are fun, very informative and the tutors are always on hand to assist you with the course content. I look forward to doing more courses with them in the future. H Van Dort, Jan 2016
