Who Are We?

Childbirth & Early Parenting Education is an pre-natal education unit within the Lower North Shore Health Promotion Unit.

We conduct preparation for birth, parenting and exercise programs, as well as facility tours for expectant parents - primarily for those attending RNSH for the birth of their baby.


We are a non-profit making organisation with most of our income being generated from course fees. These fees help to cover costs only and concessions are available (see booking conditions). All fees include GST.


Our leaders are qualified midwives, physiotherapists or exercise leaders who are highly skilled adult educators. They undergo extensive training and assessment with the health service.

Our classes are held in several locations on the RNSH campus and at the Hydrotherapy Pool, Graythwaite Rehabilitation Centre, Ryde Hospital.


A range of Preparation for Birth, parenting and exercise programs, including facility tours, are offered. It is essential to book before attending.
