Newbury & District

Run by local parents, your local Newbury and District Branch offers you support, information and friendship to new parents and parents-to-be.




Welcome to Newbury & District NCT!


It doesn't matter whether you are a member or not.

It doesn't matter how you choose to feed your baby.

It doesn't matter how you are bringing up your child.

It doesn't matter if you don't want to host an event yourself.

Just come along and see how friendly we are!

Newbury & District NCT reaches everyone in West Berkshire from Hungerford and Lambourn in the west, to the borders of Reading in the east, the Downlands villages in the north, the Cleres in the south and everywhere in between.

Run by local parents, your local Newbury and District Branch offers you support, information and friendship to new parents and parents-to-be.


We run NCT antenatal courses for first time parents as well as refresher courses for those expecting their second, third or fourth child. They are a great way to find answers to all your questions about labour, birth, being a very new parent and looking after and feeding your baby. The NCT has also teamed up with the British Red Cross to provide Baby First Aid courses which are now running in our area. Finally, NCT Mother & Baby Yoga, a postnatal class, is currently held in Hungerford.


We hold various regular social groups to match your stage in pregnancy or parenthood and we are also a regular presence at local family events. See our events map to see full details of all upcoming events. 


We provide a wide range of invaluable services such as pregnancy and birth, early days and shared experience helplines, as well as support by trained breastfeeding counsellors. You can also hire breast pumps, valley cushions and cake tins!


We currently have various vacancies for volunteers in our branch. If you have a few hours to spare and would like to make a difference in your local community check out our current vacancies.


Our Nearly New Sales are a great way to stock up on good quality toys, baby equipment and children's or maternity clothing at a fraction of the price of brand new items. Held every six months in Thatcham, they could save you hundreds of pounds!


If you are a member of the NCT you will receive our quarterly newletter New(bury) Talk, which will keep you up-to-date with local family events and contains interesting articles on aspects of parenthood in the area. Newsletters are now available via email and online.


Please take a moment to join us in our Facebook groups and page, where you can ask questions, get advice from other mums and keep up to date on local gossip, activities, events and groups. You can also follow us on Twitter for up-to-date announcements and reminders about our branch. See the overview of all our Social Media here.


If you are looking for more information, please email us with your queries and we will do our best to answer them directly or find someone who can. If you include your phone number we will be able to either email you back or one of our volunteers can phone you.
