The quality of our teaching and ongoing direct access to globally-respected trainers in the field of newborn baby care already puts us at the forefront of maternity training.
But it’s important to us that we give our students the BEST, and that’s why, if you’re based in England, you can take advantage of our Babyem Newborn Placement Scheme.
Learning is good. But going that extra step…combining learning with practical hands-on experience is what sets you apart and makes you best-placed to confidently support parents of newborns of 0-3 months.
Having more practical experience also makes you the natural choice for clients so you’re more likely to gain employment.
Step One: You complete your Babyem OCN Level 3 or 4 Maternity Nurse Training (Online or London)
Step Two: You have a 1-to-1 consultation with one of the Babyem team. This is where we really get to know you and your goals, and understand where you are in terms of your experience and confidence so we can match you with the best placement. We also go through your CV if you have one (and we provide additional training and tips on how to create / improve your CV)
Step Three: We explain the best way to undertake your first placement, including how to contact them. We guide you on what to say, and what to expect during the placement. Then you can find families who are ideal for you and your level of experience and confidence to match with on our secure portal, and we support you through this process. During your placement we check in with you, so you always feel supported.
PLUS: you are teamed up with a Babyem ambassador. Your ambassador is an experienced Maternity Nurse, and fully in tune with the Babyem ethos of being gentle, holistic, evidence based, and all about empowering families. They are there to support you during your placement…whether it’s to answer a question ‘in the moment’, give you a confidence boost, or help you know what to say or do, our ambassador system (in addition to the ongoing support in our Facebook group) has you covered.
You can see full details of the Babyem Placement Scheme here.
We work closely with a range of organisations, including NCT groups, Great Ormond Street Hospital, charities such as Homestart and Gingerbread, national multiples groups The Twins and Multiple Births Association and Twins UK, plus we receive many self-referrals from parents, so we’re confident you’ll be able to gain experience on at least one, if not several, newborn placements to enhance your experience.

A good rule of thumb would be two hours per week watching the lessons.

If you are completing the level 4 assessment paper this is likely to take approximately 40 hours of learning.
However, the course has been designed to support you to complete the assessment, and we provide you with the key theory and practical steps to ensure you can not only complete the course, but feel confident when working with families.
