A place to ask, share and discover
We know that when you're pregnant or a new parent, having a local network of friends provides invaluable support.
But if you’re feeling isolated, tired or overwhelmed while you're pregnant and through the first months with your new baby, it can be hard to meet other parents who can understand just what you are experiencing.
That’s why NCT membership offers you an easy way to meet other mums and dads who are going through exactly the same thing.
