NCT Courses and Covid-19

Until the end of October 2020 our courses are online, not in person, due to the UK’s social distancing measures, particularly the inclusion of pregnant women in a ‘vulnerable group’ advised to avoid social contact.

We know how much you value our in-person courses so we’re keeping our options open for courses from November 2020 onwards. Currently you can still book these as in-person classes but we’ll only bring people back together in venues once it is safe to do so. We’ll never put you, your baby or your family at risk. Read our course FAQs and Covid-19 pregnancy and birth information.

Our Covid-19 Price Promise: If you book a course that is already being delivered online you’ll receive a 15% discount at the time of booking. If you book a course that is currently offered as in-person, we’ll give you back 15% of your course fee if we need to move it online to ensure your safety.

If you’ve already had a baby and you’re expecting another, our live online NCT Antenatal Refresher course is for you. We revisit all the important information and help you meet a group of parents with new babies due around the same time.

Course outline

This NCT Antenatal Refresher course covers birth, feeding and the early postnatal days, but also looks at the prospect of bringing a new baby into the family, and the effect it can have on all members. It’s a good way of concentrating on this baby and this pregnancy - often overlooked when there are toddlers and other children to look after.

This course is delivered online over the video call platform Zoom, but will still be fun and friendly way of making a friendship group for your new addition.

The course is designed to be flexible, so it’ll suit you whether you have a small or large gap, whether it's your second or your fifth baby, and whether or not you’ve attended antenatal classes before.

There are many topics that can be covered during the class, our classes are designed so that you get to cover the things that interest or worry you.

Subjects covered will usually include:

  • Pregnancy: what happens in labour and how the baby is born
  • Body awareness, relaxation, breathing and massage
  • Positions for labour and birth
  • Vaginal birth after a caesarean
  • What is available for pain relief - natural and medical methods will be covered
  • What happened last time and how to make it different this time (if you want to)
  • What your partner can do to help
  • Introducing a new baby into the family and how you feel about this
  • Feeding choices
  • Sibling rivalry
