Wandsworth is the local NCT branch nearest to me and I have been a member for 26 years. Nct was founded in May 1956 and was started initially as a way to inform and support women and their new families who did not have their own family network nearby.
You can find out more about what we do as a national organisation at www.nct.org.uk. Do consider becoming a member as you then receive the local magazine and also support the campaigning and outreach work that we do on a national level.
I feel very privileged to be part of such a large group of local practitioners, offering a range of courses including Antenatal classes for both first time parents and Refreshers, including sessions with our Breastfeeding Counsellors, Relax, Stretch and Breathe, Yoga for Pregnancy and Early Days courses.
