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 8 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.
