Parent support

Parent and Baby Coffee Groups

Cardiff NCT runs a network of coffee groups serving different areas of the city that meet regularly to support parents and babies. These meet in parents houses each week usually on a rota basis and any parent and babies are welcome.

Our coffee groups are open to members and non members, regardless of how you give birth, or how you chose to feed your baby. You are welcome to come along and meet people while you still have a bump, or with your newborn, right up to pre-school age, which is handy if you have more than one child. It’s a great opportunity to chat to others about their experiences of parenthood and make new friends.

Please use the email contacts to make contact and find the next venue.
