Antenatal and Early Days courses

NCT Antenatal courses aim to provide expectant parents with the knowledge and confidence they require to make informed choices around labour, birth and early parenting. Classes are held locally in the evening or at weekends with groups of 8 couples maximum, and lasting friendships are often forged during these sessions. One to one classes are also available for those who may prefer them, and refresher sessions for those expecting second or subsequent babies.

Early Days courses are suitable for mothers with babies under 6 months old and involve informal discussion sessions, allowing participants to explore their feelings and share experiences on parenting and other issues.

If you would like to enquire about a course please contact Sam on 0844 243 6887 or email bookings5p@nct.org.uk with your address and phone number. A fee is charged but concessions are available for those on low incomes.

NCT Practitioners (antenatal teachers, breastfeeding counsellors and postnatal leaders) undergo thorough training with the NCT and ongoing professional development.
