BABY & YOU CLASSES
WHAT ARE THEY? “Baby and You” is an exciting Postnatal Class that the Kapiti Parent Centre is able to offer to Mothers and/or Fathers of newborn babies.
WHO TAKES THEM? The Classes are presented by a Qualified Childbirth Educator (CBE) who may differ from the one who took your Childbirth Education Class.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ATTENDING? The benefits of attending are often that you have read up and been so focused on everything to do with your pregnancy and labour but after the birth, suddenly, you have this small person who is so dependent on you for everything that it can be really scary. There could be others who are experiencing the same problems as you, or going through bad days and you can help out, support or share experiences. The classes help groups bond together faster and enables you to have a wider support network, which is so important in the first six months.
Several classes are run each year, generally within 2 to 3 months of your Childbirth Education Class finishing. Classes are run over 3 consecutive weeks from 10 am, generally on a Thursday or Friday and last for about 90 minutes.
If you have paid for a full membership then the fee for this class has been included in that.
If you have not completed a Kapiti Parents Centre Childbirth Education Class, but would still like to do our Baby and You class then we generally have places available at a cost of $50. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on when the next class will be and to check availability. A great way to get to meet other mums with children of similar ages, especially if you have just moved into the area.
