What our learners say

As a health visitor, I thought I had a good grasp on maternity care, but enrolling in this programme was an eye-opener. The depth of knowledge and the focus on holistic care not only enhanced my professional skills but also transformed my approach. I feel better equipped to support mothers and infants in their crucial early stages.

Having worked as a nanny for over two decades, I felt I knew it all. But pursuing the Maternity Programme was a game-changer. It wasn’t just about earning a certificate; it was a profound learning journey. The programme expanded my understanding, refining my techniques and elevating my confidence to a whole new level.

The Mental Health Module resonated deeply with me. As someone who faced personal struggles during my own twin pregnancy, this section hit close to home. Learning strategies on handling mental health challenges not only for mothers but also infants was enlightening.

I initially expected a routine course, but the ‘whole course was unexpectedly captivating. Despite having years of experience as a maternity nurse, the depth and practicality of the content amazed me. It provided valuable insights, offering practical solutions and strategies I hadn’t encountered in my career.

As a teacher transitioning into motherhood, I encountered many challenges. The Maternity Programme not only aided me in understanding the complexities of being a new mum but also fueled my desire to help other mothers navigate through similar journeys. This programme didn’t just educate; it inspired me to support and guide fellow mothers in their beautiful yet challenging phase of life.
