NCT Courses and Covid-19 update

May to July 2020 NCT courses and workshops are being delivered online, not in person, due to the UK’s social distancing measures.

The safety of parents, babies and NCT course leaders is paramount when deciding whether our courses are online or in person. Decisions on how current and future NCT courses are delivered are made in line with government policy and guidance from the NHS, the Royal College of Midwives and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.

Read our NCT Covid-19 FAQs for latest information and guidance on pregnancy and coronavirus from the most accurate and trusted sources.

Getting ready to give birth to more than one baby can be really exciting, but it can feel daunting too. So our workshops will prepare you for the joys, as well as and challenges, of multiple births.

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.

Twin babies

In lots of ways, having more than one baby isn’t that different from having a single birth, but it can raise some challenges. That’s why we’ve designed these three-hour workshops as an add-on to our NCT Signature or NCT Essentials antenatal courses.

They give you and your partner a support network of parents in the same boat, and plenty of time to learn all about the unique experience of having twins or more.

What you'll learn

newborn twins

Your birthing options

You’ll explore what’s different about a multiple birth. Plus, you’ll explore the options you may have available for birth, and what to expect during labour and caesarean births. 

Parents with twins

Caring for twins and multiples

We’ll help you prepare for the realities of parenting more than one baby. You’ll get a chance to build on what you learn during your antenatal course, including practical tips for managing two or more babies at once.

Where to find support

Our workshops are a chance to mix with other parents who really understand, creating a vital support network. But we’ll also give you lots of other info on where you can get support, including local groups.


Our workshops are priced based on the length of the session and where in the UK they are based. We want every parent to have access to our sessions, so we offer discounts in some circumstances – find your local course or get in touch for more info.
