Maternity Nurse & Educator Specialist Diploma

This Diploma exists to place you as the central support of Parents’ and baby’s life. 

You may already know that by offering continuity of care for Parents’ their mental health and birthing outcomes are positively enhanced? Why are services so disconnected when we know the benefits? You have probably already noticed that you can train as a maternity nurse, or a baby massage instructor, or baby sleep consultant, or, or ,or – yet why when they are all interconnected, does no one  offer an interconnected diploma?

Disconnected and incomplete training leads to disconnected & incomplete care…

This also leads to disconnected an incomplete income! Yeh, I said it. You have a good heart, I know you do, you wouldn’t be here if you didn’t. But you also have a life and dreams to live, probably family that wants quality time with you at home. So yes you need an efficient way of earning a good living that you can take pride in. Guess what ? Offering continuity of services to your parents leads to efficient and longevity of income!

This Diploma will enable you to either start a new career, with no prior experience, as a Maternity Nurse & Educator Specialist, or enhance your current business and activate a long term, transformational career.

With 1300 SureStart centres now closed, and more  continuing to close at a rate of 1 in 3, this leaves parents’ without vital community support. Alongside this, the Leadsom Review stressed the urgency for “joined up”, community care services. Holistic services are shown to improve children’s health such as stronger immune systems and improved early years mental health. The benefits of integrated services offer babies socio-emotional and behavioural development long beyond two years old. Now has never been a better time to invest in a rewarding career that can also give you an impactful brand that generates sustainable revenue for you.

“Being a Maternity Nurse already I chose this course because I’m looking for ways to quit private nanny-ing. I was expecting something like what you get in antenatal classes, but the course was just so much more. Before doing this, I did wonder how I’d teach baby care for 6 hours, now I’m planning on 12 hour courses! – Thank you for creating an incredible course ! “
