Kōpūtanga - Pregnancy and Parenting

Pregnancy and parenting in the Southern district is to support first time parents and others by providing a range of information and facilitation of discussions around pregnancy and childbirth and parenting of a new-born.


Enrolment on a course is free and is encouraged as soon as your pregnancy has been confirmed.  You are encouraged to bring your partner or another support person with you if possible, however, if this is not possible you are welcome to come on your own. 

Plunket deliver pregnancy and parenting across the Southern district.  They a work with a number of health providers to deliver sessions, which are culturally acceptable and in settings where women are comfortable.  This includes involving both Maori and Pacific providers. 

Most pregnancy and parenting sessions are delivered to groups of women but in the Southern district we also provide one-on-one sessions for women who may not wish or may not be able to attend group sessions.
