Maternity Nurse training (OCN accredited)
Interested in becoming an accredited Maternity Nurse and trusted advisor for new parents and babies?
How does it work?
Our Maternity Nurse Training Level 3 and 4 consists in:
a two-day group session Online
followed by a six-week learning programme for you to complete independently from home and at your own pace, with your teacher ongoing support whenever needed
1 groupe session ( 2hours ) for Q and A
1 one to one session per Level to catch up on your homework

You will upgrade the knowledge gained during your Level 3 and 4 Training:
how to guide and support new mums and parents in their journey with their little one and give them professional advice on topics such as breastfeeding, bottle feeding, sleep, routine
how babies evolve in the first few months of life and what you can do as a Maternity Nurse to help parents become more confident when looking after them
