These expert-led antenatal courses are for parents who are having another baby and are looking for some extra support through pregnancy, birth and beyond. They provide a chance to reflect and build on past birth experiences and prepare you and your partner for the challenges of parenting another baby.
NCT courses are small and informal and most include sessions for women only. NCT antenatal refresher courses cover preparation for birth and parenthood. The course will refresh your knowledge on pregnancy, labour and birth while recognising the challenges you may have faced previously. They also consider the impact of introducing a new baby to your family, sibling rivalry and the potential changes to your relationship as a couple. Refresher courses will revisit feeding and some include a dedicated breastfeeding session with a qualified breastfeeding counsellor.
NCT antenatal refresher courses are a great way of concentrating on this baby and this pregnancy – often overlooked when there are toddlers and other children to look after. They are also a great way of meeting others and making a friendship group for the new addition to your family. Parents often find that the people they meet on these courses become an important support in the months and sometimes years after their babies are born. You do not have attended one of our NCT courses before, to attend our refresher courses.
We offer discounts for parents in receipt of benefits or on lower incomes. Please request further information from the course administrator when you enquire about refresher courses.
