Has it been a while since you had your last baby? Maybe you moved to a new area, and are you looking to connect with other parents? Or do you want to build on what you learned from your last pregnancy?

Our refresher courses are for parents who’ve had antenatal classes before, revisiting all the important information you learned. Importantly, they’ll also help you meet a group of parents with new babies due around the same time.

What to expect

Connect, reflect

When you’re already a busy parent, it can be hard to find time to connect with your unborn baby. NCT Refresher courses are a chance to focus on this baby and this pregnancy. There’s also a chance to think about and build on past experiences.

Close-knit network

Our classes are a great way to meet other parents whose babies will be around the same age as yours. We keep classes small and welcoming, with plenty of time to chat. NCT courses include a reunion, so you can get the social side off to a great start.
