Becoming a dad
Whether you're already a dab hand at parenting or just learning the ropes, there is always more to learn about when you're a dad-to-be. We've brought together a huge range of resources for you to read through to give you a hand getting your head around this new stage in your life.
Meet other dads
Becoming a dad is an emotional time in many ways, and we know that it's helpful to talk and share experiences with others, especially if you're all learning new skills at the same time. That's why many NCT branches around the UK offer Dads' Groups to talk about life as a parent. Take a look at our Branch Finder to see where your nearest Dads' Group meets.
If you'd rather meet other dads online, NCT hosts a friendly e-group just for dads. It covers a whole range of parenting topics and is a place where dads can ask questions, give their opinions and learn from each other.
