From where to give birth to knowing when your contractions are really getting underway, antenatal courses are a great way to find answers to all your questions about labour and birth.  

Why choose our courses?      

  • Reliable information that allows you to make your own decisions.
  • Structured course that prepares you for the arrival of your baby and the changes and challenges of being a new mum or dad.
  • Relaxed and informal, usually with no more than 8 couples.
  • All teachers are trained by NCT to diploma level and have their educator’s licence renewed every year.    
  • Birth partners are central to our courses, whether this is your partner, a member of your family or a friend.

 Who runs our courses? 

MelissaMy name is Melissa and I am an NCT antenatal teacher and mum to 3 school aged children. I joined NCT in 2001 and went to NCT antenatal classes during my first pregnancy.  I trained as an antenatal teacher, with the NCT, to offer expectant mums and dads the same information and support that I was given that was invaluable during the early months with my first child.  I have been qualified since 2011 and I am really looking forward to welcoming parents and babies to classes and coffee mornings.
