A 10 hour course usually consisting of five Monday afternoon sessions.

This is a standard NCT Early Days Postnatal course covering topics such as sleeping, feeding, relationships, and returning to work. Led by an NCT trained Postnatal Leader, these courses are designed to support you to become the parent you want to be.

The groups provide a relaxed, friendly and supportive atmosphere in which to openly talk about your life as a mum. It is a chance to put YOU first; to discuss your hopes and fears, to gather ideas to help meet the challenges, to celebrate the successes and reconcile your expectations with reality. You will get to meet other mums with babies of a similar age, make friends, develop new ideas, gain support and encouragement and have a hot drink!

The Postnatal Leader will not act as an expert or dispense advice, but will help you decide what is best for your baby, yourself and your family.

Subjects covered may include:

•The difference between expectations and the reality of parenthood
•Skills for being a mother
•Daily patterns
•Returning to work, or not
•The change in your relationship with your partner and the wider family

Discounts are available for this course; please enquire in confidence about these. Everyone can pay for a course by agreed instalments as long as the final payment is made by the time that the course starts.
