Welwyn and Hatfield

NCT Welwyn and Hatfield branch of the National Childbirth Trust (NCT) covers the Welwyn Garden City, Welwyn, Knebworth and Hatfield areas including surrounding villages.

About Us

We are a very active and friendly branch with over 250 member households. All of our local services are run by volunteers, many of whom have become involved after being helped by the NCT themselves.

Pregnant WomanWe can support you before, during and after your baby arrives; whether or not you attend NCT antenatal courses, there are opportunities to meet up, make friends and share experiences.  We aim to provide a mixture of events and activities for both children and parents.

As well as the antenatal classes that run in our area, we provide local support for new parents, and organise fundraising events including our very popular Nearly New Sales where you can pick up top-quality baby and children's clothes and equipment at bargain prices.

We also organise regular informal get-togethers for parents and children in Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield, and run our weekly ”Bumps & Babies” group for expectant mothers and those with pre-cruising babies, with regular visits from local practionerers. Also, we have our new coffee time at Freddie's Den soft play in Hatfield for older babies, see our Whats On Calendar for further information about what's happening across the branch area.

Newborn BabyIf you are expecting a baby, or you have young children and would like to get to know other families in the area, then please come along to one of our events, or email our parent support coordinator here.

Alternatively you can contact us by emailing welhat@nct.org.uk, we look forward to meeting you!

You don't have to be an NCT member to go along to our events - our services and activities are open to everyone. However, if you find the NCT helpful, and want to help it continue to reach other parents, please consider becoming a member.

You can also volunteer for the NCT - have fun helping out with NCT branch activities and use your skills to support local parents whilst meeting new people.
