How you choose to give birth is a deeply personal decision. If you’re thinking about waterbirth, find out more at one of our practical workshops.
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.
When it comes to giving birth, there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach. Whether you are planning to have your baby at home or in hospital, a water birth can be an option for you.
Some mothers feel that it eases the pain of labour. Others find the water helps them to change positions more easily. If you think you might like to have a waterbirth, our workshops guide you through what you’ll need to consider.
What to expect
Our workshop will cover the things to think about – from hiring or buying a pool for a home birth, to arranging to use a birth pool in hospital. We’ll talk you through what might happen, how to plan and possible costs.
Our waterbirth workshops are run by experienced NCT antenatal teachers. They’ll make sure you’re at ease and answer all your questions. You’ll leave confident that you’ve got the information you need to make decide about a waterbirth.
Open to all
All parents-to-be can come to our workshops. You don’t have to be an NCT member, or to be taking one of our antenatal classes. We welcome everyone, and you might even make some likeminded new friends.
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.
