Winchester NCT is here to support all expectant and new parents whether you're a member or not. All the people listed are volunteers, so please be considerate when contacting them.

Group Support

Winchester NCT runs courses and drop-ins for expectant and new parents.  Relax Stretch Breathe, Antenatal, Refresher & Early Days courses are available on our courses page. 

Breastfeeding is supposed to be the most intuitive act a mother can do for her baby, but a lot of us find it difficult.  Breastfeeding support is available from NCT, via our helpline, or call our local Breastfeeding Counsellors direct.  You can also call in at B.A.B.I.E.S., our Breastfeeding Support group, in Winchester, Andover, and other locations around Hampshire every week.

Services

Egnell Pump Hire

We have 3 large, electric breast pumps, like the ones used in special care baby units, available to hire.  Contact Melanie on  01962 884 939.

Valley Cushion

The Valley Cushion is specifically designed as an aid for women who experience pain when sitting after childbirth.  Hiring a cushion costs just £15 for 5 days, £2 per day thereafter.  We have Valley Cushions available to hire for as long as you need.  Please contact Sarah on valleycushion@winchester-nct.org.uk if you would like to hire one.

Bra-Fitting

At NCT we understand how important it is to have a comfortable, well-fitting and supportive bra both during and after pregnancy.  Our range of feeding bras have been tried and tested by thousands of mothers – so you can be confident that you will feel both comfortable and well supported whilst feeding your baby.  Call Rachel to book an appointment on 01264 338831.

Nappy Library

As you may have seen in our newsletter, we have a nappy library to help members test out the wonders of washable nappies.  We have a selection of donated and purchased nappies - different brands and sizes for you to road test and discover that real nappies can fit in with normal life!

Thanks you to all our nappy donors.  Donations of (in particular shaped) nappies such as Tots bots, wraps and accessories still very welcome. If you've just about done with a size and would like to help promote washables then please consider giving us a donation.  We're after variety rather than quantity or pristine quality so even one well-used nappy will be appreciated. 

If you can help please contact nappylibrary@winchester-nct.org.uk.
