Keeping You Informed: We now have new courses up on our website for early 2021. We’ve been making some changes, so that we can bring you more of what you want! You will have more opportunities to learn about having your baby, and taking care of you and your new family. Our goal is to still continue to deliver a great range of valuable courses. To achieve this, we need to begin to charge for some courses. This will enable us to expand our course offering, while maintaining the same high quality childbirth and early parenting education. Our HVDHB funded courses will remain free to women, in the Hutt Valley, who have a Community Services Card. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you believe that paying for our course will place you in financial hardship. We remain committed to ensuring the best face-to-face training is available to you, by maintaining our small class sizes. If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to get in touch, The Team at birthEd
