NCT Waterbirth workshops

We run regular Waterbirth Workshops by NCT qualified antenatal teachers.

If you do decide to use water for your labour there are some practical things to consider, such as hiring or buying a pool for a home birth, or arranging the use of the birth pool in a hospital.

We cover everything you want to know about waterbirth including:

  • Practical considerations
  • Costs involved
  • A chance to see a waterbirth pool set up

The course is open to all parents expecting a baby.

What does the course cost?

Waterbirth Workshops are priced according to the number of teaching hours and the area of the UK it takes place. We charge for antenatal classes in order to cover the costs to the charity for providing this service and to help us to provide services for all parents. Everyone is welcome to pay by instalments and we offer discounts for parents in receipt of benefits or on lower incomes.

Please request further information from the course administrator when you enquire about your NCT Waterbirth workshop.
