Babies don’t come with a manual, but we’ve got you covered!
Our experienced educators at Nest Pregnancy and Parenting Education will help you prepare for childbirth and teach you practical parenting skills in a friendly, comfortable, impartial and non-judgemental environment.
The fact you’re here probably means that you’re having a baby or already have one. Either way, we think that’s something to celebrate.
Parenthood is a journey like no other and it starts well before the baby arrives. The moment we find out we’re going to become parents we’re faced with all sorts of decisions.
At Nest Pregnancy & Parenting, we believe that to have a positive and satisfying birth experience, parents should be well informed so that they can make their own decisions based on current information and guidelines.
Our mission is to provide classes and workshops for expectant, new and well-established parents in a friendly and most importantly non-judgemental environment.
Our classes and workshops
Classes and workshops are held at Birkenhead and Hobsonville Point, by our awesome team of friendly and knowledgeable educators and are designed to be fun, informative and interactive.
Childbirth education classes
$220 per couple
These group classes run for two and a quarter hours, over six weeks. They’re the perfect way for you to get all the relevant, up-to-date information and practical skills you’ll need for labour, birth and caring for your baby. They’re also a great way to get to know other mums and dads at the same stage of parenthood!
One-on-one birth preparation
$350 per couple
If you’re short on time or prefer one-on-one tuition, these private three hour workshops, run in the comfort of your own home, are ideal for you! We cover everything you need to know about labour, birth and early parenting and can tailor our one-on-one sessions specifically to suit your needs.
Childbirth refresher classes
$90 per couple
Pregnant with number 2? (or 3 or 4 or 5 …?!) Come and join us at one of our childbirth education refresher courses. Usually held over 4 hours on a Saturday morning.
Child CPR and Choking workshop
$45 per couple
It’s so important as parents/carers that we know some basic CPR and know what to do should our child start to choke.
For this popular workshop we have partnered with Little Beat first aid providers.
NEST will be running these popular 2 hour workshops throughout the year, so please remember to book early as spaces are limited.
What our customers say
Loved the refresher class. Covered some great info – was just what we needed!
I attended an infant CPR and choking course organised by Nest last night and thought it was brilliant. Really informative, practical and hands on workshop. We ran through step by step scenarios of what to do if you find your child unresponsive and likewise if your child is choking. The use of infant manikins made the scenarios so much more plausible and allowed the information to sink in (and stick) a lot quicker. Thoroughly recommend for everybody!!
