There are so many things you need to know quickly when you have a brand new baby - and that's why its useful to have a good support network around you. Many NCT members find their NCT group is a great source of support and information as you are all going through similar things at roughly the same time.
We are also aiming to build up a useful store of documents here that may help answer some of your questions in the early days - even starting from before your baby is born when you are thinking of the kind of birth you would like to have.
See related documents section on the home page for the following:
*Birth Plan - home birth
*Birth Plan - hospital birth
*Birth Plan - Planned Caesarean
*Birth Plan - VBAC - (Vaginal birth after Caesarean)
*Breastfeeding support groups - GBSN (Gloucestershire Breastfeeding Support Network)
*Breastfeeding - Reasons to be proud
See separate pages for information on what the NCT is, what we do locally and details about our antenatal courses, refresher courses, postnatal support, Valley cusions and some pointers on postnatal depression.
