Pregnancy and parenting

Our Bump, Birth and Baby classes are offered over a six week period, once a week usually in the evening. Classes are run across Hawke’s Bay so you can choose where to go that fits in with you.

The best time to start classes is around 26-28 weeks (6-7 months). Please contact us to find out more and for a class that will work best for you.

The information shared in the classes will help you make choices in your journey to becoming new parents and gives you an opportunity to ask questions, the answers to which will help you make informed choices about your care. We also offer one-off classes for breastfeeding and newborn safety.

Our classes are run by qualified childbirth educators with many years of experience answering all sorts of questions and working in partnership with your LMC.

If you are a young mum there is a group especially for you - YOUNG MUMS. These run from both the Teen Parent Units in Hawke’s Bay at William Colenso in Napier and Flaxmere Teen Parent unit. Please speak with your LMC or make contact with us.
