Pregnancy & parenting education

Attending antenatal classes, or pregnancy and parenting classes, can be valuable for your preparation for labour and birth, breastfeeding, and early weeks with your new baby. They're also an opportunity for you to meet other parents who are expecting a baby.

Plunket provides several free pregnancy and parenting classes.

There are several privately available antenatal classes, each of which has a slightly different focus. Ask your midwife or LMC about what's available.
