Antenatal Classes

We have partnered with Plunket to bring you these interactive antenatal classes in Ashburton. They are shaped to give you the information you want and need for pregnancy, labour, and life as a new parent in a supportive, safe, non-judgemental environment. We also set up your coffee group so that you have on-going support and friendship!

Through Parents Centre’s working relationship with Plunket, we are able to offer DHB funded, free classes for community services card holders.  If you don’t have a CSC card, but cost is a barrier for you, or there are other challenges to accessing these classes please let us know by emailing and we can support you with attending these classes free of charge.

Antenatal classes follow the Ministry of Health’s recommendations for pregnancy and parenting education, and each class is run by qualified facilitators.

Class run on a Tuesday night from 6pm - 8pm or 6.30pm to 8.30pm for 6 weeks or over a weekend from 9am - 4pm, at the Ashburton Plunket Rooms 222 Cameron Street.

Topics covered in the course include:

  • labour and birth
  • stages of labour
  • choices during and after birth
  • pain relief options
  • infant feeding, and
  • newborn care.
