NCT Courses and Covid-19

Until the end of August 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 September 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.

Baby massage can help you relax, soothe and connect with your baby. Learn and practise baby massage skills during one of our five-week courses. It’s also great to get out and socialise with other new parents and carers.

Following government COVID guidance we are sorry but this course is on hold until the 31 August. You can book for later in the year, when we hope current restrictions will have been lifted.

Baby massage

Touch is your baby’s most important sense while developing, so learning baby massage gives you a special way to bond. Led by experts, our five-week course teaches you safe massage strokes for babies six weeks and older.  

What to expect

Mother and baby

Bond with your baby

Baby massage is a lovely way to strengthen the bond between you and your baby. Parents, grandparents and anyone else caring for your baby can use baby massage to put your baby at ease. It’s a great way to build confidence about getting hands-on with your little one.

Support your baby’s development

Baby massage can help soothe your baby’s tummy troubles, help their bowels and reduce trapped wind. It can also soothe and relax babies, and some parents report that it helps their baby sleep. 

Group of mums

Meet other carers

Our five-week courses are open to anyone who looks after a baby, so it’s a great way for parents and carers to meet new people. With lots of time to chat and get to know each other, it’s a fun, relaxing way to socialise. 

Pricing

Our courses vary in price depending on overheads and location. We want everyone to have access to our classes, so we offer discounts in some circumstances. Find your local course or get in touch for more info.
