This OCN level 5 Maternity Nurse Training course is specifically designed for those professionals who are already working with newborns in a maternity role and are looking to build on the training they have already received. For example, in our breastfeeding modules, we address complex breastfeeding.
If you are looking for very in-depth training on a particular topic, then our online shorter courses in areas such as gentle sleep coaching, colic, reflux and infant allergies, tongue-tie and infant feeding and perinatal mental health courses, are approximately 6 hours in length and go into more depth. These are particularly useful for those babycare and health professionals looking to specialise in those areas.

This maternity nurse training is fully online, however, you do have access to recorded webinars which are at the end of each of the modules.

Learners need to have completed a course focused on the care of newborns and babies, e.g. the level 3 or 4 maternity nurse course, doula qualification, medical qualification etc… In some cases we accept candidates with significant professional experience supporting newborns who do not hold baby care accreditation. This is reviewed on a case-by-case basis; please contact us directly before booking.
Learners are required to have at least 2 + years newborn baby experience before attending the course, gained by either working in a private setting such as a family home or hospital. We welcome learners from a variety of baby care backgrounds. We often have candidate attend our course who are qualified Midwives, Maternity Nurses, Doula’s and Maternity Support Workers, Sleep Coaches, Lactation Consultants and Health Professionals.
We want to make sure you get the most out of the training course and have the best possible experience with us! If you have little baby care experience, and you are looking to gain more knowledge and practical experience supporting parents with newborns, then we offer a level 3 and 4 Postnatal Maternity Nurse Course in London and also online. Through these two courses, all UK candidates can join our newborn placement scheme, which helps to develop confidence and skills! It’s also important that learners have over 3 years newborn baby experience before attending this level 5 course, as during webinars and reflective sessions we will be supporting learners to reflect on their experience caring for babies.
“I would recommend it to all Maternity Nurses to update their skills and anyone currently working, or wishing to work, postnatally.
I did my Level 5 Maternity Nurse training with Babyem and thought it was absolutely brilliant. Evidence-based, compassionate and sympathetic to the developmental needs of new babies and led by top speakers. I’m really pleased I chose this company to do my Level 5 through and would recommend it to all Maternity Nurses to update their skills and anyone currently working, or wishing to work, postnatally.”
