Following the recent arrival of his daughter Alexis, Daniel has become a member of the charity the National Childbirth Trust (NCT). ‘the parents’ charity’. The national charity NCT was set up nearly 50 years ago and carries out various different activities in support of expectant and new parents and their babies. NCT lobbies both local and national government, campaigning for improved maternity services and the rights of parents.The Trust also provides direct support to new parents, including running antenatal classes and distributing information sheets. There is also an online shop for maternity and baby products, with proceeds going to support the charity’s support and campaigning work.“My wife and I received a lot of support before, during and after the birth of our daughter in October,” explained Daniel, “so I am keen to support this excellent charity in its work with other new parents”.
