Hi everyone, I've just come across this website and won't be writing on it again but discovering it made me want to say a bit thank you to NCT which was such a lifesaver to me over 30 years ago when I had my two babies, now very grown up children living at the other side of the world! The childbirth classes empowered me and enabled me to ask for the kind of deliveries that I wanted, not always possible as the first was a forceps rotation birth but sometimes it works out as the second was on all fours without any medication or assistance. The most useful thing though were the coffee mornings where I met so many other mums and their babies. I made lifelong friends, we spent many happy holidays with one family as a result and I'm still in touch with several of the other mums. It really made the first few years so much easier to have a built in social network, especially as we had no extended family locally. So THANK YOU to NCT in the 1980s and good luck to all you new mums or mums to be (and dads too)! Suexx
