Kia Ora – Welcome

Congratulations – you’re having a baby!

Welcome! Kia ora! Thank you for visiting birthEd! 

We are very sorry to inform you that we are no longer funded, to provide pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding and early parenting education, by the Hutt Valley and Capital and Coast District Health Boards. This unfortunately means that, at the moment, we are unable to offer you many of our courses.  We are sorry if you are unable to find what you are looking for.

 We are going to take some time to regroup and make some changes. Please check back with us in early 2022.   

Our Story

Our story began in 2004 with a local midwife and an educator who were aware of the need for top quality, accessible and friendly childbirth classes in the Hutt Valley and Wellington regions. They became passionate about designing a set of courses that would meet the needs of parents of different ages and cultural backgrounds. Today birthEd has a team of midwives, childbirth and lactation educators who are constantly updating their knowledge and skills to bring participants the latest information. Each birthEd course facilitator has been trained not only as a midwife and/or childbirth educator, but in the birthEd philosophy and attitude of acceptance, and in creating an atmosphere of relaxation and fun. birthEd is proud to have such a professional, innovative and passionate team of educators who want to inform and empower parents to give them the best start to their parenting journey. This is in keeping with our philosophy, mission and vision.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide excellence in education through a comprehensive inter-active programme encompassing pregnancy, birth and parenting. We aim to promote, support and encourage natural birth; well-informed, self-empowered parents and healthy, breast-fed babies.
