NCT Courses and Covid-19

We are updating course information on our website and contacting course bookers as early as we can before courses begin, explaining whether courses will run in-person or online.

How we make decisions about the delivery of NCT courses

As the UK’s largest parenting charity and leader in the field of antenatal education, we make informed decisions with full consideration to the current and any (confirmed) future UK government restrictions and official guidance and the most reliable research findings and data regarding pregnancy and Covid-19.

We also consult closely with our colleagues at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) and Royal College of Midwives (RCM).  

It’s our charitable mission to support all parents to have the most positive experiences of pregnancy, birth and the early days, so we will: 

  • always make decisions that offer the best experiences available whilst protecting you, our parents, your babies and our NCT course leaders. 
  • act promptly and transparently, informing you how and why your course will be delivered as early as practically possible.  

Cindy is currently a student NCT doula. An important part of training for this role is that Cindy is required to support a woman or couple through birth with the support of the NCT doula tutors. Your baby needs to be due between mid - February and mid-April 2022 for you to be able to consider asking Cindy to be your birth doula. The fee for Cindy to support you has been appropriately set to recognise the fact that she is a student.
