Curious about Homebirth?

Your Homebirth Option is designed for people who are interested in finding out if home birth might be right for them, and who have already attended a regular antenatal course (either with us, or another organisation).

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.  As of the 1st of November some courses may incur a fee, whereas bookings made prior to this date are unlikely to have incurred a fee. 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
