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.
