Our members say...

“After a fab course we decided to sign up for the membership mainly to build on the friendships we made during the antenatal sessions, but also partly to support the charity and the great work it does putting people together.

We’ve been out and about with our closest NCT branch and have both made some great friends, I know a good bunch of local dads that I regularly see, we often have a laugh over what our babies have been doing, at times it has even helped keep my sanity through some of the stressful times of parenthood and possibly even saved my relationship.

I shall be renewing my membership when it comes up and who knows, there may be another little one about in the future.”  

– Steven, Ealing branch
