Description

We're here to support parents.

Edinburgh NCT provides classes, groups and counselling services, offering parents information and support during pregnancy and early parenthood.

We give them accurate, impartial information so that they can decide what’s best for their family, and we introduce them to a network of local parents to gain practical and emotional support.

Our charitable purpose

- We offer information and support in pregnancy, birth and early parenthood.
- We campaign to improve maternity care and ensure better services and facilities for new parents.
- We aim to give every parent the chance to make informed choices.
- We want to make sure that everyone has access to our services and activities.

We want all parents to have an experience of pregnancy, birth, early parenthood that enriches their lives and gives them confidence in being a parent.

The branch runs its own fundraising, postnatal groups and social events and produces a regular newsletter which includes details of all these groups and activities.

NCT Branches are your local parent support network, helping you become the parent you want to be.

Each branch has a team of volunteers supporting mums and dads.
