To keep whānau and staff safe, all Northern region appointments will be by video call or phone until Tuesday 7 Feb. Your nurse will be in touch. All drop in clinics are cancelled.

PPE follows the Ministry of Health’s recommendations for pregnancy and parenting education, and each class is run by qualified facilitators.

Topics covered include:

  • labour and birth
  • stages of labour
  • choices during and after birth
  • pain relief options
  • infant feeding, and
  • newborn care.

The PPE course is offered in the Canterbury, West Coast, Southern and South Canterbury district health board areas – and both evening and weekend classes are available to make things as easy as possible for you to fit them it into your schedule.
