NCT Courses and Covid-19

Until the end of March 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 April 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 Sally

Sally lives in Sutton, Surrey, with her three children and is also mother to a grown-up step-daughter.  She has experienced two hospital induced labours and one spontaneous hospital birth.  

She has experience in different parenting situations and has built a blended family with her husband and recognises the importance on being non-judgemental and inclusive of partners and other family members at this amazing time.               

Sally is calm and well organised and has a great sense of humour. She understands how good support during labour and birth, of both the woman and her partner can make their birth more positive.            

The birthing environment is such a crucial element of the process and Sally can work with you and your healthcare professionals to support you wherever you choose to birth your baby. Sally can support you in your labour providing practical ideas such as advice on positions and massage and also support you emotionally during labour and in the postnatal period.            

Sally covers the South London area including Epsom and St Helier, Kingston and St Georges hospitals.

Sally will:             

•             Meet with you and your partner (if you have one) two or three times before the birth to get to know you, discuss your preferences and concerns, explore your options and support you in making plans for your birth.

•             Be available by text/email in-between meetings.

•             Be on call 24/7 for up to 4 weeks around your estimated due date.

•             Stay with you throughout your labour and for a few hours after birth to ensure you and your new family are settled.

•             Meet with you again, a couple of weeks after birth, should you wish to talk through your birth and signpost you to any further support you feel you may need.


Sally was sensitive to our needs and supported us both every step of the way. We had a difficult time giving birth to our oldest child and were apprehensive about things second time round. Sally reassured me and gave me confidence to move past that experience. Sally was warm, approachable and helpful throughout the whole process. I feel lucky to have had her support on this journey. I can’t recommend her highly enough!

Sally was a reassuring presence throughout. She was the voice in the corner that gave us support and confidence. Thank you!
