In a recent Grazia article, an expectant mother talked about how she would be shunning the NCT antenatal classes that are a rite of passage for so many new mums.

She described how she was not interested in making ‘mum friends’ and would be leaning on her own mum and neighbour for support, rather than “a bunch of women with whom the only thing I have in common is passing a human out of our vaginas”.

She also mentioned that NCT have a reputation for militantly promoting breastfeeding and births without medical intervention.

What have your experiences with NCT been?
