Becoming a mother is a life-changing experience. So help to prepare yourself by spending time with other new mums in the same boat. You’ll learn from each other’s experiences and build your confidence on our Early Days course.
Your first few months as a mother can feel amazing – and overwhelming at the same time. It’s normal to feel uncertain as you begin to find your feet.
NCT Early Days introduces you to a supportive group of new mums, while bringing you the skills you need to adjust. Here you’ll get all the information you need to confidently parent your new baby and navigate your relationships.
Led by our expert course leader, the groups provide a relaxed, friendly and supportive atmosphere to openly talk about your life as a mum.
In your group, you'll discuss practical skills in coping with your new baby. Importantly, the course will help give you the confidence to parent your baby in the way that is right for you and your family.
And after weekly get-togethers with the same group of new mums, you'll also come through with a new group of friends.
