      I can honestly say that it is the best course I have ever attended, and I have done many over the years.

      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


      Genuinely would highly recommend the MNT course.

      I have completed my level 4 maternity nurse award with Babyem and would highly recommend the course. I have also done the paediatric first aid too. The MNT was a very thorough course and covered all aspects in depth . Vanessa who was the trainer was fantastic and clearly passionate about her job hence delivering such a fantastic course. I was unsure with parts of the coursework but pleasantly surprised at Emma answering the phone to guide me countless number of times without hesitating ! Genuinely would highly recommend this MNT course.

      I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wishes to have a career in this field

      I have just completed the OCN Level 4 Maternity Nurse Care course. I found the course to be highly professional and educational. We were privileged to be tutored by Vanessa Christie who gave us a great insight as to what is expected of us as Maternity Nurses. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wishes to have a career in this field.

      I have done a few courses with Babyem, and I cannot recommend them highly enough

      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
