One of the first things we did after finding out we were pregnant was to register for the NCT classes in our area. Everyone I had spoken to about pregnancy in the UK raved about their own wonderful NCT experiences, especially the opportunity to meet other couples preparing for the arrival of their Little One. And I’m happy to report I was not disappointed. While nothing really prepares you for the experience of giving birth, our classes gave me a heightened awareness of the importance of listening to my body, instincts and baby.

And as an added bonus, I now how the most amazing group of women to call on for excellent baby advice. It’s the best kind of advice because it’s simply based on experience. What works for baby Ella may not for baby Sander and what’s right for one mother may not be for another but we share openly and candidly and completely without judgement…because we know we’re all just trying to do our best.

I’m consistently inspired by the other mother’s in our group. I love the little foot picture on baby Oliver’s birth announcement and couldn’t help by copy the sweet verse on baby Clara’s thank you card. “How beautiful a day can be when kindness touches it” This wonderful group of women have shared endless kindness with me and I look forward to repaying the favour for many years to come. I’m already thinking about 1st birthday invitations….
