Being a parent is one of the most important jobs on earth, but we all know it can be challenging at times.

With the help of our incredible volunteers, our local NCT communities help you to combat loneliness, make new friends, share stories and information, and most importantly, have fun with your baby.

Our parent and baby meet-ups and groups

Bumps & Babies Play

NCT Bumps & Babies play groups are a fun way to meet other local parents. Some of our groups also welcome toddlers and older children.

Walk & Talk

Walking is great for our wellbeing and health. NCT Walk & Talk groups meet outside and allow you to enjoy some fresh air while meeting other local parents in your area. 

Bumps & Babies Chat

Bumps & Babies Chat groups offer a chance to meet other local parents in a public space like a cafe.

Once Mark went back to work, I felt incredibly lonely. I had a crying baby and was very, very tired. I almost lost sight of who I was. My confidence was low. A friend told me about NCT’s Bumps & Babies. It took a bit of courage, and a lot of make-up, but I found myself walking into a café of parents with babes in arms like me. The volunteer was super welcoming and kind. Before too long I was hearing stories that sounded so familiar it made me laugh. I realised, I was not alone.

Amy, Nuneaton

As a new dad on Shared Parental Leave I just felt like I really needed to get out of the house. Being able to drop in to Bumps & Babies was a lifeline as it gave me some time and space to meet other parents and a bit of structure to our day.
