The Birthing And Maternity Education Online Academy seeks better maternity outcomes for women, babies and their families, with a particular focus on diverse and vulnerable communities.
The Academy’s origins and objectives can be traced to a collaboration on a series of well-received live events and webinars, delivered before and during the pandemic with the exceptional midwifery team at Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust. This partnership continues and remains integral to our work. At the same time, the Academy has gone on to forge new partnerships and alliances and continues to do so.
Subject expertise comes via a mix of maternity, medical, academic, cultural, communal, third sector governmental, regulatory and other professional sources to name just a few. The voice, viewpoint and experience of the mothers, babies and families is central to everything we do.
Our ever-expanding programme includes online courses, webinars, podcasts, live and on-demand video lectures, and documentaries, all of which are aimed at improving maternity outcomes for women, babies, and their families, with particular attention paid to issues faced by diverse and vulnerable communities.
Membership of the academy funds bursaries, awards, research opportunities, education, equipment, innovation, and essential information published in different languages, all in support of our core mission.
We welcome you to join our community and attend our upcoming events. If you have any questions or just want to say hello, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Our work is grounded in four pillars: Education, Impact, Purpose, and Community.
Our online programme provides a comprehensive range of learning opportunities, including online courses, webinars, seminars, conferences, podcasts, live and on-demand video lectures, documentaries, and a wider event programme. Our goal is to support personal and professional development and drive better maternity outcomes for women, babies and their families, with a particular focus on diverse and vulnerable communities.
We are committed to ensuring that our courses are relevant and representative of the topics we cover and the communities we serve. To achieve this, we actively recruit instructors from the myriad communities we work with. In addition, we offer work experience placements and internships to midwifery students with an interest in our work.
We strive every day to provide meaningful membership and work tirelessly to improve maternity outcomes for all women, babies and their families, with a particular focus on diverse and vulnerable communities.
Examples of our impact include, but are not limited to, funding thousands of well-being wallets for expectant parents, producing essential information in various languages, supporting an incubator in Uganda that has saved thousands of lives, providing scholarships, bursaries, and awards, fostering community unity, collaborating with respected industry bodies such as the Royal College of Midwives, supporting the work of Maternity Voice Partnerships, and disseminating critical information through early pregnancy evenings as well as our extensive birthing and maternity education programs.

We are community builders and believe life is better in the plural.
Through our programmes, we foster a deeper understanding of communities and bring communities together. Our efforts encompass professional, academic, cultural, religious, social, and pastoral communities, and especially diverse and vulnerable groups. Or in other words the communities that form the global community.
