The NCT (National Childbirth Trust) is the UK's leading charity for parents. We are here to help you through the transition into parenthood, offering relevant information, reassurance and mutual support. Our purpose is to provide support and evidence-based information in pregnancy, birth and early days of parenthood. We want all parents to feel confident about their maternity care. We campaign to improve the services and facilities for new parents, and provide essential services and information to give them a chance to make informed choices.
