About Central Hawkes Bay Parents Centre

Central Hawkes Bay Parents Centre is an independent, volunteer-led centre that is part of the wider Parents Centre Aotearoa network. Our locally-based educators provide professional antenatal and postnatal courses, covering pregnancy, labour, childbirth and care of a newborn, using evidence-based information, to ensure parents are well-informed and confident going into the early years of parenting.

In Central Hawkes Bay, educators are supported by a group of dedicated volunteers who offer additional services and groups to support local parents. These volunteers know that parenting is a huge life change because many of them have been on the same journey. Our groups support parents to feel connected, supported and understood.

CHB Parent’s Centre is proud to assist CHB families on their journey through parenting. We offer a wide range of services and education, as listed below. Most of our education classes and services are free to our Members. To become a Member please contact us.
