Parents-to-be evenings

Fun, informal and social evenings for pregnant ladies and their partners to meet others who live in Tower Hamlets for a chat and a nibble. Compare notes on pram-buying, find out the latest information about where to give birth in the area and much more as well as meeting other local parents-to-be. You don't need to be a member to come along.  The Parents-to-be evenings will be back in 2016 so watch this space. 

Antenatal Classes

BumpNCT is the UK’s largest and most respected independent provider of antenatal support. That’s why we are number one with mums and dads to be.

Our range of antenatal courses and workshops will help you prepare for birth and your new life as a parent; exploring both the practical and emotional aspects most relevant to you.

Choose from the Signature, Essentials or Drop-in Antenatal Courses and receive all the information you need from fully licensed practitioners to prepare for one of life's most wonderful experiences.

NCT Antenatal courses are famous for the friendships that they form, so after the birth of your baby there are plenty of playmates for them and that so important social network of new parents in your local area.

Bookings are handled by our Parent Services Administrator on Courses timetable and locations can be found on the Tower Hamlets Event page.

Baby First Aid

First aid

NCT has teamed up with the British Red Cross to offer you the chance to learn vital first aid skills that could one day save your child’s life.

NCT Baby First Aid courses have been uniquely designed with you in mind. The content is specifically relevant to parents and carers of babies and pre-school children and covers topics  that we know can be a worry for parents such as CPR, choking and burns.

Sessions are taught by a qualified British Red Cross First Aid trainer and will last for two hours.

For more information or to book please contact further dates, please use our Events search page.

For more first aid learning, please check the British Red Cross website:

Real Nappy Meetings

Come along to learn more about real (cloth) nappies from our branch representative Rachel. Regular 'Nappuccino' events are held locally every month where you can find out all about cloth nappies and pick up your Real Nappies for London vouchers. If you live in Tower Hamlets and have a baby under 18 months you can get £40 to spend on whatever real nappies you like. Come along if you are interested in finding out more or if you already use them and would like to share tips with other parents. 

Please read Rachel's blog here to find when the next meeting will be or contact her on
