One of the key areas the NCT helps parents is with support.

Parents at an NCT workshop

Our goal is to be able to match any parent going through a difficult period with another parent who has had a similar experience for informal, confidential, parent to parent support. Signing up for this would be a fantastic way to volunteer on an ad hoc basis and potentially make a genuine difference in someone’s life.

If you need support, then we are able to offer parent to parent support - without fear of judgement. Our support is open to everyone, not just NCT members

Whatever your experience might be (hyperemesis, traumatic birth, pregnancy loss, postnatal depression…), if you are willing to support someone else experiencing the same thing we would really like to hear from you - dads as well as mums. All details will be kept confidential and your name will not be published anywhere, or passed on to anyone, without your permission.

If you are interested in being on the Experience Register or you are seeking support, please contact
