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.

Jasmine is currently a student NCT doula. An important part of training for this role is that Jasmine 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 the end of February and mid-April 2021 for you to be able to consider asking Jasmine to be your birth doula. The fee for Jasmine to support you has been appropriately set to recognise the fact that she is a student. 

Would you like Jasmine to be your doula?

About Jasmine

Jasmine is a mother of 3 living in Chislehurst with her young family. Since a young child it has always been her hearts-desire to support women during the birthing process. She would describe her doula practice as a little traditional as she aspires to provide a sense of ‘being with woman’ during birthing experiences, taking a holistic, empathetical, calming and non-judgmental approach. Jasmine values all aspects of pregnancy, labour and birth; nurturing you through your birthing process. She is passionate about supporting and empowering women to trust within their bodies and to not underestimate the power of birth.  

Jasmine really enjoys building genuine connections with parents. She is happy to meet with you and your birthing partner (if you have one) to truly get to know you and develop a trusting relationship. You may choose to meet up with Jasmine to explore your birthing options, share your wishes/fears or simply to catch up for a chat over a cup of tea. She desires to create a partnership with you and your birth partner, as this will allow you all to work collectively as a team when your labour begins. Jasmine will always listen to you, comfort you and respect your wishes. As your doula she will support you to have control over your birthing experience and act as an advocate for your choices. 

Jasmine is a qualified NCT breastfeeding counsellor and is also currently training to become a NCT pregnancy yoga teacher. She will calmly and skillfully support you during your birth, using relaxation & breathing techniques, active birthing positions or calming yoga poses. Jasmine has also completed aromatherapy for childbirth training and can explore aromatherapy during labour or massage techniques with you if you wish. 

Jasmine’s breastfeeding counsellor role has taught her to become a good listener and strengthened her ability to support others with informed decision making. She will join you in labour whenever you feel you need her and remain with you and your birth partner until the end of your labour. Jasmine will provide a continuity of care physically and emotionally for both you and your birth partner, whilst offering companionship and a reassuring presence throughout.
