NCT Courses and Covid-19

Until the end of February 2021 our courses are online. Currently, due to rising Covid-19 infection rates and official guidance for pregnant women, online is the only way we can safely and practically deliver local, fully interactive and inclusive courses – a decision supported by the Royal College of Midwives.

We know how much you value our in-person courses so we’re keeping our options open for courses from March 2021 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.

To understand more about why we're delivering our courses online please read our course FAQs. Our website also has an up-to-date section on 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.

About Amy

Amy lives in a small village on the outskirts of Biggleswade with her partner and 3 beautiful children, Ben 8, Izzy, 7 and Phoebe 5. She has been supporting women in labour and early parenthood for 12 years now. Amy is passionate about promoting positive birth, supporting both women and their partners so they feel empowered and equipped as they journey into parenthood.

The journey parents make is one of transformation, it has many different elements to it and at times parents can feel lost and unsteady. Amy has the skills and empathy to support and encourage parents, aiding in a much smoother transition. 

Being an advocate for parents is something Amy feels very strongly about, women have voice’s and they need to heard. Amy has the skills and knowledge needed to aid parents in making decisions that best suit them.

All of Amy’s children were born in the hospital where Amy worked, having her friends and work colleagues supporting her through her births highlighted the importance of having continuity of care and support from a trusted individual which directed her on the path to becoming a doula.

Amy has worked in many different areas of the maternity setting, from theatres to the midwifery led birth unit. She is a qualified antenatal practitioner and maternity nurse who fully understands her role as a doula and the importance of working in harmony with other health professionals.

During labour Amy can offer support through massage, breathing techniques and visualisations. Amy feels very passionate about the early days post birth and is able to offer support with feeding and settling in with a new baby.
