NCT Signature antenatal courses are tailored to the needs of each group and designed for your birth partner to attend with you, so they can feel involved and know how to support you.  Almost 90% of people on our courses felt more confident about labour and birth and 80% felt more confident about baby feeding. With small groups you can meet other parents-to-be going through the same excitement and trepidation, share concerns and experiences and build friendships that can often last for years. There's a short video clip on the NCT website which tells you more: http://www.nct.org.uk/courses/antenatal/signature-antenatal-course
