“New Parents Academy has helped our families prepare for life with a newborn. Bonus is that it is catered to adopting families specifically, no more sitting in a room full of pregnant women. Our families can learn from the comforts of their own home. Our families love the checklist on what to bring to the hotel room with them when traveling for the birth and staying for the ICPC process.”

- Steffany Aye, Adoption-Beyond

"After attending the New Parents Academy online course, we have had waiting adoptive families share how confident they felt when bringing their baby home. They loved that they didn't have to feel awkward by attending a newborn care class at their local hospital with all pregnant families and also loved that they could go back and rewatch the webinars when they needed a refresher."

- Meredith Shepard, Heart of Adoptions

"I wish I would have known about Valerie when I adopted my son. She is a walking handbook for new parents and the tips she provides are amazing! I recommend New Parents Academy to all of the families we work with and for anyone preparing to welcome a newborn into their life."

- Rebecca Gruenspan, RG Adoption Consulting

"Hello Baby confidently recommends New Parents Academy to all of our adoptive parent clients. Families consistently report finding the course highly valuable as they navigate their new role as parents through adoption."

- Amy, Hello Baby Adoption Consultants

"New Parents Academy adds the education piece that has been missing for adoptive parents!"

- Emily Bell, Transitions Adoption

"It can be hard to for prospective adoptive parents to find expecting parent workshops that focus less on birthing and nursing and instead include more information on infant care and the first weeks home. An adoptive parent’s journey to parenthood is unique and Valerie’s on-demand infant care class is designed specifically with the needs of adoptive parents in mind. Our families have loved the content she provides and feel more prepared for the exciting moment when they become parents."
