NCT Signature Antenatal Classes:

Our local NCT Antenatal Teacher offers Antenatal Classes in East Lothian regularly throughout the year.  They are a great way to build you and your partner's confidence in your own choices for birth and parenting and a lovely way of making firm friends for life.  For more information, contact Laura Browne on bookings1c@nct.org.uk 

We are now taking bookings for sessions in September, November, and January.  Dates for March will be out soon.  

Come and Volunteer with us!

Our Branch is run entirely by volunteers - all of them local parents busy juggling children, family and work to help support other parents across East Lothian.   Our volunteers have all moved on to pastures new as their little ones have got bigger!  We are therefore unable to run any events at the moment.   If you would like to see our Nearly New Sales run again, or would like to run a Bumps and Babies group please join us!  Contact us through our Facebook page to find out more.
