Our Approach

frequently asked questions

We are proud that our courses are accredited with City & Guilds.

As there is no legal protection of title for Antenatal Educators there is no law that states educators must be registered to gain insurance or practice. Unlike like a gas engineer for example who must be on the Gas Safe Register in order to work there is no similar regulation in our field.

Unfortunately this can leave potential educators confused and disoriented in the choice of training provider.

To give the ultimate reassurance we have developed our courses to be real recognised City and Guilds qualifications. As 25% of our students are international, having world renowned recognition that is a “household name” for all of our students gives the ultimate platform for using your qualifications for a successful career.

We have made the website as comprehensive as we can to answer all of the questions you may have about our diplomas and our approach. In terms of the course, the content, the team running it, the workshops, qualifications, payment and how the course works…it’s all on here, so please do spend time exploring to find your ideal path. If you have any specific questions please fill out the contact form and we can support you.

No, everything you need to become an Antenatal Childbirth Educator and a successful business person is all included within the course. If you are a Midwife or Doula we recognise your prior learning and as such offer discounts. Please note you will need to send us evidence of prior learning for the discount to apply.

We expect most students to be able to complete the Diploma in Antenatal Education and Teaching in 6 months, and the EXTENDED Diploma in Antenatal, Hypnobirthing Education in around 9 months. However, you can work through the material at a speed that suits you, and there is no time limit. If you are paying in instalments, a maximum of 2 modules can be completed per instalment paid*. If you have paid in full then you may work through the course at your own pace with no delay. Modules need to be completed in order and you can only move onto the next, when the current module is completed and passed. *Labour and birth, Hypnobirthing and Mental Health are classed as “2 modules” for the purposes of instalment payments.

We recognise that everyone has individual requirements and expectations from undertaking qualifications. 

To help you, here are some tips to help you compare courses you may be considering:

  • Take a look at the course content, is there a full breakdown of all the modules and units?
  • Do you know exactly what each unit will teach you?
  • What about the marketing and business side? Is there a module on actually making money, and support after qualification?
  • What does this marketing module go into? is it just websites and posters or does it include copywriting, funnels, automation? Believe me posters wont get you very far!
  • How about the assessments? Do you need to wait for grading or is it automatic?
  • How long do you have to complete the course?
  • What is the cost of the course and does the course offer instalment payments?
  • How about a workshop?
  • Is the course written and led by recognised industry experts?

With the Diploma in Antenatal Education and Teaching and the EXTENDED+ Diploma in Antenatal, Hypnobirthing Education and Teaching you can work for yourself and build your own independent brand.

If you want to teach for us via our BirthWorld franchise, you must complete the EXTENDED Diploma. However you can still work independently alongside working for us as well.

The EXTENDED Diploma in Antenatal, Hypnobirthing Education and Teaching has more options and more ability to build income and give you the infrastructure of business support in addition to the qualifications.

When you complete the EXTENDED Diploma in  Antenatal, Hypnobirthing Education and Teaching  or the ADVANCED Diploma in Antenatal and Hypnobirthing Education with Breastfeeding Counsellor,  you are able to set up a profile with our sister company BirthWorld.

With this franchise opportunity, we handle the marketing and bookings for you, so all you need to do is teach.

  • You will receive up to £160 per couple attending your course and can take up to 8 couples per class. 
  • You can decide on where to teach, what days, hours etc. 
  • There will not be another educator within a 10 mile radius of you (Outside of London). 
  • You can run as many courses as you want, and you can teach your own courses independently as well.
  • You will be given course and teaching plans and expected to stick to those plans. This is because BirthWorld is a research project as such we need to ensure that parents who come to us get a standardised course to ensure the research is as watertight as we can make it. We do review the teaching plans in line with feedback from our teachers, so please be assured you are a valued part of this project. Of course with your own courses you can dictate the content.
  • You will need to pay for the venue hire fee, refreshments, your insurance (which is around £60 a year). You will be provided with a full Teaching Kit so you wont have start up costs to worry about either!
  • We provide the parents with a luxury gift bag.  

The joy of this type of career s that you can establish your classes anywhere you think is a suitable environment. Some teach in their own homes, some use the clients homes. Community Halls and Leisure centres are also places to consider.

The added benefit of teaching for BirthWorld is that you can ask for charity rates, or offer a place free of charge in your own classes, as this can secure you a big discount on the hire fee.
