|East & Bays Parents Centre provides a seven session course run by a professional Childbirth Educator.
We aim to provide a balanced approach to childbirth education. Classes are fun, informal & friendly and give the parents-to-be the opportunity to meet other parents in your local neighbourhood. Friendships formed may last a lifetime.
The antenatal course covers:
- Development and growth during pregnancy
- Understanding your changing body
- Antenatal care & tests
- Informed choices
- Labour & birth
- Coping during labour
- Infant feeding
- Practical Parenting - nappies, bathing, winding, cot making, car seats, clothing and equiptment
A class will be confirmed for you depending on your due date. You are usually about 29-31 weeks when starting the class. After completion of your course, the group continues to meet as a support/coffee group. Women find their coffee group plays a vital role in helping adjust with the changes a baby inevitably brings to life.
Cost: Your course fee of $295 also includes a 12 month Parents Centre subscription where you will receive the East & Bays Parents Centre bi-monthly newsletter and the Parents Centre National Magazine (Kiwiparent) and the Baby & You course for babies from newborn to 3 months, held for 5 weeks on a Wednesday morning.
To book or find out more: For further information and bookings, please contact 021 710 499 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
After Antenatal: With Parents Centre completing this course can be just a beginning. Afterward you can keep in touch through a coffee group or via Facebook.
Later, once your new baby has come along, you may find you have a whole new set of questions and choose to sign up for our Baby & You programme. Either way you'll also be enjoying the other benefits of membership including discounts, our regular newsletter and a subscription to Kiwiparent magazine.
