Feel more confident as a new parent with our NCT New Baby Course

Our NCT New Baby course offers practical information and emotional support in the early days with your baby. Plus, the course connects you to new parents with babies of a similar age, to help you build a supportive community.

What you’ll learn

There’s no ‘how-to guide’ to parenting your new baby which has all the answers, so it’s not unusual for new parents to feel uncertain, unprepared or overwhelmed.

Our New Baby course focuses on life with your new baby, the things you are experiencing, different ways to manage and where to find support, if you need it.

The sessions have three key themes:

  • Understanding how your baby will grow, learn and develop
  • How to support your own family’s physical and emotional wellbeing, as well as your baby’s
  • Looking at the range of approaches to parenting so you feel confident.

Free online Introducing Solids workshop!

What’s more, a free online Introducing Solids workshop is included with every New Baby course.

Moving on to solid foods is a big moment in your baby’s development. But with so much advice and so many methods out there, it can be tricky to know how to approach it.

Our Introducing Solid Foods workshops give you all the information you need to make decisions that work for you.
