The first six weeks with your new baby is a wonderful and often challenging time, as you adjust to your new family dynamic. During a listening exercise with new parents, we heard about the normal anxieties often felt during the postnatal period and how many found it difficult to access the right support and information. This series of five online talks (which you can join from the comfort of your own home) will provide the knowledge and strategies to help guide you in these early days.  

NCT Members can access this series of interactive and engaging 45 minute talks led by our experienced postnatal practitioners sharing their knowledge and insight to broaden your understanding whilst giving you the confidence to embrace the rewarding journey with your new baby. There will also be an opportunity to have your questions answered during each talk.  

You can join one or all of these sessions, the choice is yours. To sign up you need to be an NCT Member and have your membership number to hand. If you’re not a member find out and join by clicking here.
