Childbirth Education (Antenatal)

Nelson District Parents Centre offers antenatal courses (childbirth education) for expectant parents and their support people to prepare for the arrival of a new baby. Our popular classes are run by trained childbirth educators in a relaxed setting. Our classes are interactive and we encourage you to stay connected beyond the course (coffee groups).

Locations: We offer courses in Nelson and Motueka.

Topics include: pregnancy; signs and stages of labour; birth including coping strategies, what to expect at a hospital/home, life with a baby and practical parenting including feeding, sleep, bathing and newborn care.

Why choose Parents Centre? Our courses are fun and no question is off limits! We don’t just focus on the birth – you’ll learn about pregnancy, birth and practical ideas for looking after a newborn. You’ll also meet other families. These groups often become a vital support as you transition to life as parents and our families often say they are still friends many years later.

Our courses fill early – we recommend booking as early in the first trimesters as possible.
