WHERE PARENTING IS EVERYTHING
Onewa Parents Centre encourages and empowers local families with childbirth education, new parent classes, parenting workshops, and community events. We are one of 46 centres within the wider Parents Centre New Zealand network and support parents in Birkenhead, Beach Haven, Birkdale, Glenfield, Bayview, Northcote, and Hillcrest.
Members enjoy a range of benefits including meeting other local parents, being part of our successful coffee groups, partner discounts and access to news and resources.
We hold all of our classes in our rooms at the Rawene Centre in Birkenhead.
Antenatal classes for expectant parents and their support people to prepare for the arrival of a new baby and becoming parents. Our highly regarded classes are run by qualified, trained childbirth educators in a relaxed and nurturing setting.
BABY AND YOU CLASSES
Our Baby and You course is for newborn parents and helps you navigate the first three months of parenthood. Ask questions and deal with issues as they arrive, whilst learning about your new baby and how to cope with your role as a new parent.
