About NCT

Becoming a parent can be a steep learning curve, so NCT is there for you – whatever the challenges of pregnancy and parenthood. NCT is the place to go for independent information, birth and parenting classes, practical support, and new mum and dad friends.

Why do new parents choose to do an NCT antenatal course? Because research shows that after doing an NCT course, 91% of mums-to-be said they felt more confident about making labour, birth and early parenting decisions. Nearly all mums who took part (94%) said that they felt supported by other parents on their course, and 96% said that they would stay in touch afterwards. NCT courses are good for dads and partners too. Almost 95% of those attended said they were more confident about caring for and feeding their baby.
