For parents-to-be we have a range of courses, events and information which will help prepare you for your baby's arrival, offer advice and provide the opportunity to meet other expectant parents in your area.
Every few months the Branch holds a Welcome Evening for expectant parents, new parents and those new to the area. This is an informal evening and provides an opportunity to meet other expectant parents.
Come along to a Welcome Evening and learn about what the NCT does to support you. Regular evenings are held over the year, with the next taking place on Tuesday 2nd July 2013 - places go quickly, book yours asap ~ email Daniela for more information.
Antenatal Classes are a great way to help parents-to-be understand the stages leading up to childbirth; breathing techniques, pain relief options, a time to ask questions and a chance to meet other expectant parents, both mums and dads-to-be. A range of antenatal classes are available along with courses that offer a refresher for those expecting their second/third/more baby and exercise courses for you leading up to your baby's delivery. Classes usually start in the seventh or eight month, booking sooner rather than later will secure your place and will be a task ticked off your 'where do I start?' list!
Bumps, Babies and Beyond - every Friday
Come along and meet parents to be, new parents and babies and those with toddlers every Friday 10.30am - 12pm at the Wimbledon Park Pavillion, Wimbledon Park.
