About Mana Parents Centre

We believe that parenting is everything and that great parents will grow great children! We work with parents to equip them with the best knowledge, skills and support so that they can be the best parents they can possibly be. Mana Parents Centre provides Childbirth Education (aka antenatal classes) and Parent Education classes for families living between Tawa and Pukerua Bay, and further afield where necessary.

Our other services range from First Aid and CPR, to Postnatal courses covering the early days of parenting a newborn. And of course we arrange the essential ‘Coffee Group’ for parents and babies to attend with other participants of a Childbirth Education Course. A lot of our Coffee Group participants become lifelong friends, sharing milestones and memories as their children grow.

We offer packages for your convenience:

The Basics: $220: ​This is your Childbirth Education course, which comes with an associated ‘coffee group’, and one year of Parents Centre membership, and all the benefits of membership.

The Core Elements: $285: ​This includes everything from The Basics, as well as your Baby and You course which is invaluable in those early days with your new baby.

The Full Package: $380: ​As the name says, this is the package to get you off to the best start, Childbirth Education, Baby and You AND Bigger Baby and You classes, along with an additional Parent Education class (such as Infant CPR/First Aid or Water Safety etc), as well as a 2 year membership, and discounts which go along with that!



Mana Parents Centre is run by volunteers who are parents just like you! We are a friendly group of people and contribute in different ways to make things happen. There are lots of jobs big and small that need to be done, so we could do with your help. In return we can offer you fun committee meetings, personal and professional development opportunities, friendship, and even cheaper membership and course fees!

Committee benefits are: subscription to Kiwi Parent Magazine, newsletters, access to special interest evenings and antenatal classes, exclusive discounts through Mana Parents Centre, invaluable parent support & friendships and enabling you to make a difference in your community.

If you think you might be able to help out in some way (no matter how small), please email us on or go to our FaceBook page for more information.
