Antenatal Ed Howick is well into its 5th year, providing realistic parenting and birth preparation classes to so many parents in South-East Auckland.

At Antenatal Ed Howick we can guarantee you a realistic journey through one of the most personally challenging but joyful experiences of your life.

Parents say they are referred to us because we "tell it like it is".  Would you want it any other way?

Childbirth and parenting is an experience and therefore different for all of us. Nothing can prepare us completely for the expectations we have and the emotional challenges we will face.

Our classes continue to develop to provide you with the most up-to-date best practices and research based information. We don't just talk you through this time in you life, we are working everyday with couples like yourself who want to get the best education. Remember, we attend birth, work in birthing units with Mums and Babies, and offer Registered Lactation Consultant support.

If you are wondering where you might find a good birth preparation class, inquire as to how much parenting and postnatal information you will receive, from other classes and who is the provider.  

Do you want information from experienced midwives working daily with couples?  We don't play games in our classes, we teach you hands on skills to help you through the realities of parenting and meeting the needs of your new baby.


To join us in 2019 please inquire on this site, talk to your LMC, or email Linda at - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
