Lincoln

Welcome to NCT Lincoln Branch page. Here you will find information about courses and events coming up in Lincoln and surrounding villages. Lincoln Branch runs groups aimed at bringing parents together for support, information and fun!

NCT Lincoln Branch is your local parent support network, helping you become the parent you want to be. Our branch is led by volunteers and offers local parents and parents-to-be invaluable support, services and NCT events.

Why contact your local branch?

Find a support network – NCT branches support you before, during and after your baby arrives. NCT volunteers offer you opportunities to meet up and make friends and share experiences at coffee mornings, Bumps and Babies sessions and other support groups.

 

NCT Antenatal Classes

The cornerstone of the NCT’s activities has always been its antenatal classes.  Courses are led by experienced teachers and are open to all.  The aim of the course is to help build up your confidence and skills to help you cope with relaxation, labour, early parenting and breastfeeding. 

Courses are held in the evenings over a period of six weeks: one two hour class per week.  Classes are small; a maximum of 9 couples.  These small friendly groups are  designed to encourage discussion and give you the opportunity to ask about and discuss the issues that are important to you. It is an ideal opportunity to meet other ‘parents-to-be’!

There is a charge to cover the costs,  but we offer discounted places to parents who would find it difficult to pay the full amount. Please ask, in confidence, for more details. Early booking is advisable.

For bookings tel 0208 7529129 or email bookings6b@nct.org.uk
