NCT classes are a traditional form of antenatal education established in the 1950s and were the only antenatal class available for a long time. On NCT classes, you would learn about baby care (such as how to change a nappy) as well the different forms of pharmacological pain relief available for a medicalised hospital birth.
You may learn a breathing technique for labour on NCT classes in Abbey Wood, but you won't usually learn Hypnobirthing tools, other than perhaps a brief introduction.
