Me and Karen joined an NCT group before our little girl was born. There was alot of information and bits of advice that would be useful but not invaluable.
The realities of child birth and being a parent can only really be hinted at in these situations. I would totally recommend any expectant parents to join the NCT and do the course, as we had a ready made peer group in place when the wee one was born and beyond.
It struck me that we live surprisingly isolated lives in the city, even one as open and pastoral (in places)as Edinburgh, and making these connections with others in the same boat is essential. At least it has been for us..
