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.

Firstly congratulations!

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.

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!

Caitlin van der Voorn
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!!
