We’re running a series of postnatal online talks for our members, led by our expert practitioners. Find out more and see what topics are coming up.
The first six weeks with your new baby can be a wonderful and often challenging time, as you adjust to your new family dynamic.
During a listening exercise with new parents, we heard about the normal anxieties often felt during the postnatal period and how many found it difficult to access the right support and information.
To provide support and information to NCT Members with babies aged 2 to 6 weeks, exclusive access to a series of five live talks is now included in the membership package. Delivered online, so you can join from the comfort of your own home, each talk has been created by experienced NCT practitioners to provide the knowledge and strategies to help guide you in these early days.
Talks topics include ‘Getting to know your baby’, ‘Newborn sleep’, ‘Crying and Communicating’ and ‘Finding your Feet’.
Each of these interactive and engaging 45-minute talks is led by one of our experienced postnatal practitioners who will share their knowledge and insight to broaden your understanding, whilst giving you the confidence to embrace the rewarding journey with your new baby.
There will also be an opportunity to have your questions answered during each talk.
So far, over 700 NCT members have attended since the talks launched in Autumn 2021 and the feedback’s been great. Read on to see what recent attendees thought of the talks and take a look at this video for a preview of what the talks can offer.
“Fantastic content and plus of being a member – would recommend as a first-time mum.”
“Very reassuring and especially helpful as a reminder once baby is born. Thanks NCT!”
“Fantastic session with helpful practical advice on what to really expect during this time. Presenters were emphatic towards parents and babies busting a lot of the internet illusions of sleep training at this early stage.”
“Great to feel reassured that it’s going ok and that it will get better, what I needed to hear this morning, thanks.”
A proud addition to the series, ‘Feeding your baby’ was introduced this spring, due to popular demand from new parents. It provides feeding information and support from our NCT trained Breastfeeding practitioners. It covers feeding cues, responsive feeding, breastmilk supply, signs that feeding is going well, mixed feeding and expressing, and parenting at night.
As with all of our live talks you will leave feeling reassured and with a greater understanding of how to adjust to live with your new baby.
NCT Members have exclusive access to the postnatal talks series with the choice to join any or all of the five sessions.
To sign up you will need to have your NCT membership number to hand – find out more and register here.
