About Our Classes:

At The Stork Network we don't make decisions for you, we see it as our role to provide you with information and support for you to make your own choices about your pregnancy and birth. We offer non judgemental, supportive and  tailored education sessions for you where you can discover, explore and understand the process that is pregnancy, birth and beyond. 

We offer small class sizes (max 7 couples), a comfortable and inviting environment, facilitators that are qualified in pregnancy, birth and parenting education and the ability to flexibly cover topics directly suited to the needs of each class. Our dedicated education centre 'The Birdhouse' is located in Ashburton at 63 Harrison st next door to our Store where you can find lots of essentials for your new baby along with a great coffee and friendly, dedicated and knowledgeable staff always willing to help where they can. 

Once you're registered online we will send you a link to questionnaire so we can ensure that they class you're enrolled in is tailored to meet the needs of all participants. We can't wait to meet you and officially welcome you to our "Stork Network Family".

Our Childbirth Educator comes to you either on your own or with a group of your friends for a private 6 hour in-home session that you've designed to meet your needs! Contact us to find out more.
