The BCT has several social and support networks, each of which deals with a special subject. There is the popular pregnant and new mums group and the future (single) mums by choice group and also groups dedicated to IVF, twins and multiples, families with neonatal babies and more.
All of the groups bring together people that are in similar life situations. They meet up on a regular basis and provide friendship, exchange of information and support for their members. Our support groups are, like our playgroups, interest and local groups, open to all BCT members and they welcome new members at all times. Join us and meet others!
Groups are initiated and organised by enthusiastic members for members. To join one of these groups, please contact the groups organiser (find contact details in the BCT app on Twizzit).
Our app/webpage on Twizzit holds the full BCT agenda including the activities of our support groups. This is where members can see the details and how to sign up their attendance which is generally free.
If you are not yet a BCT member but would like to find out more about one of these groups, or if are a member and would like to set up a new support Group, just please contact our Groups Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.

(Future) Single Mums by choice
We are a group of single mothers by choice: solo moms who had a child without a partner, most of us with the help of a clinic and donor sperm, via embryo adoption or traditional adoption. Some of us were tired of waiting for Mr Right, of dating while hearing our biological clock ticking. Some of us already had a first child in a previous relationship. All of us have in common that we have longed for our babies for so long and love them beyond words. Our group is open to everyone who is thinking, trying, already pregnant or who has had a child as a single mom by choice.
PREGNANT AND NEW MUMS
This group is a warm, friendly place to make new friends and to share your experiences of becoming and being a new mum.
Parents with challenges
Divorce and Separation
We would like to bring this important group back to life, so if you can help, please contact us at email@example.com.
A peer support group for mums and dads going through separations. It does does not offer legal advice but rather a platform to share experiences of fellow members and to discuss what helped them cope and, most importantly, help them realise they are not alone in this situation.
This support group is for parents of babies who started their lives in the neonatal department. For whatever reason, if your baby didn’t get to come home with you, this could be the group for you.
We also understand that being a parent of a NICU baby doesn’t end when your baby comes home. We can still feel the effects of this different start months or even years after your baby comes home.
We want to provide a safe space for parents to share their challenges and their milestones. We offer a place to share your story and ask for help.
