NCT runs courses for parents-to-be and new parents all over the UK and the Channel Islands. These courses are facilitated by diploma-trained professionals, and focus on providing evidence-based information about pregnancy, birth, and early parenthood. Class groups are kept intentionally small – both to promote interactivity and to allow parents to develop a social support network.
Whilst the NHS offers equivalent courses for free, NCT courses are priced per hour, and the hourly rate depends on the number of hours in the course and the price band of the location of the course.
Courses are open to all, including disabled parents, surrogate parents, single-sex couples, single parents, adoptive parents, and indeed anyone with or expecting a new baby.
The charity offers concessions to those on low incomes, and has also provided courses to parents who cannot join in normal classes, for example mothers in prison.
