We've just been reading Katie Hopkins Twitter stream (of bile), as you do of a quiet Tuesday afternoon (?) and we've seen that she's been having a go at the NCT (National Childbirth Trust).
She's called them the "National ChildTwerps" Trust and makes a little dig about NCT mums holding "birthing pool parties".
And it's made us think. What do you all think of the NCT?
Do you go to their antenatal classes? Are you an active member of your local NCT group?
Or do you think the NCT isn't really for you? Maybe you think it's a bit middle class and natural-birthy? Maybe you've never even heard of it till now?
Please do tell us what you think by posting a reply below. We'd really love to hear your thoughts!

Well it's just Katie Hopkins doing what she does best: slamming someone or something to gain attention, and as a result keeping herself in the headlines. I can't honestly see the point of having a pop at the NCT - simply an organisation for soon to be parents - they're harmless! Before i had my first child, my husband and I did do an NCT course and it really helped fill us in on the many blanks we had as soon to be parents - in fact we knew next to nothing, so it was super helpful, and we met some nice people, some of who I still see today.
They had so much knowledge and info on pain relief during labor that I was clueless about, so I was thankful for that! Pah to Katie bloody Hopkins, I say!

Meh she's just an idiot lol. Hated her since her ginger kids comment. Nothing wrong with the NCT each to their own and their new and nearly new sales are fab x

I didn't read it but that woman is an idiot & I wouldn't listen to a word that came out of her attention seeking mouth.
Personally I thought the NCT classes seemed quite pricey so we didn't bother, opting for NHS classes instead.
