Teacher Training

Train to support families to have a more empowered and enjoyable journey through parenthood!


With BabyNatal you can train to support parents as a BabyNatal Antenatal Educator, First Aid Trainer and/or Developmental Baby Massage

BabyNatal educators train over approximately a 6-8 month period, which includes direct teaching from BabyNatal founders, and online support throughout your home study elements of training from the BabyNatal team at HQ.

What could I train to teach?


As a teacher joining BabyNatal, there are three key strands to BabyNatal:

*  FEDANT accredited antenatal teacher offering the range of antenatal and parenting education classes.
*  AoFA accredited Pediatric First Aid trainer facilitating First Aid for Parents/Carers workshops.
*  Baby Developmental Massage Class Leader facilitating parent and baby massage and play courses from birth – 8 months.

All teachers now joining BabyNatal train in a minimum of 2 of these 3 elements. Our FEDANT accredited antenatal practitioner training is compulsory for all trainees, but you can choose which/whether to train in just one other or both of the other elements.

To satisfy our training requirements, you must have:

  • Experience as a parent

  • Desire to support other expectant parents to learn practical skills around calming and caring for their newborn
  • A desire to support parents on their transition into and through parenthood
  • A desire to work equally with both mothers and fathers
