Our Childbirth Educators
Our antenatal course leaders have completed a qualification in childbirth education and have children of their own. This allows them to offer information and practical advice on a wide range of parenting issues.
Tania is one of our amazing Child Birth Educators.
Welcome to Parents Centre. My name is Tania Vowles and I have been facilitating classes for Parents Centre since 2011. I have a Diploma in Childbirth Education through Aoraki – Timaru.
I started facilitating with Manukau Parents Centre in 2011 and now also facilitate for Papakura, Auckland East and Bays North Harbour Parents Centres.
The Ante-Natal Classes I attended and the birth of my first child back in 2006 is what inspired me to start studying to become a Child Birth Educator.
I am a Mum to three children. 2 boys and a girl. Kaynan (2006) – Brennan (2008) and Danae (2011). As a parent myself I am learning everyday along this journey. I appreciate the opportunity to provide info / help parents-to-be to navigate through their late pregnancy / labour and birth and early days of parenting.
Parent Centres have been supporting Mums and Dads through the early days of parenting for many years. Their focus on setting up Coffee Groups and having ongoing support after baby is born is vital.
In 2019 I was awarded Childbirth Educator of the Year in NZ from Parents Centre – something I was extremely proud and honoured to be awarded. I love what I do and the people / babies I have met along the way.
