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.

Yoga for Pregnancy can have all sorts of benefits. Whether you’re a fitness fan or are new to exercise classes and yoga, our gentle yoga sessions can help you get your body ready for birth.

This course is on hold. Some NCT course leaders may be offering these courses privately in the meantime, visit the Birth and Beyond Collective for details. Or, you can book for later in the year, when we hope to be running the services again.

Yoga for pregnancy

Whatever your fitness level, Yoga for Pregnancy is a great way to relax and spend time with your unborn baby. Learn breathing techniques, practise birthing poses and connect with your changing body. You’ll meet other mums and get plenty of practical tips – and you’ll feel more positive and relaxed about birth, too.
