Parenting Workshops

Onewa Parents Centre offers an extensive programme of special parenting workshops throughout the year to our members and the wider public.

These one-off workshops are designed to support you on your parenting journey through the major milestones of the first year and beyond. Each session has an invited speaker who is knowledgeable about a particular stage of your child’s development and can give you practical tips and advice.

Cost:
You can attend any or all of the sessions and you don’t need to be a Parents Centre member to attend – although they do get a 50% discount. $10 for Parents Centre members, $20 for non-members. Places are limited so book early.

Venue:
All classes are held at the Onewa Parents Centre rooms in the Rawene Centre, Birkenhead.

    Do you know when it is safe to return to exercising after you have had your baby? Christie from Active Soul is passionate about getting mums back into exercising in the safest way possible. She will cover the following in these sessions:

     - the importance of taking time out for yourself,

    - the change in your thinking and bodies post baby

    - how to embark on a safe return to exercise

    - checking for abdominal separation

    - activating pelvic floor and TA

    - suggestions for starting your exercise journey

    - the benefits of taking that time out for yourself

    Christie will cover the above topics at the Centre before taking you and your bubs out for a walk through Birkenhead, stopping at a park for a light workout that caters specifically to you and your needs as a Mum looking at starting or re-embarking on their fitness journey.

    You will finish back at the Centre for some essential key stretches, with time at the end for any questions or reflections.

    The perfect opportunity to make your health and wellbeing a priority. After all, happy mum = happy bubs!

    Hi, I’m Kim, mum to two gorgeous school-age children, and certified sleep sense consultant. I started Cherished Sleep, sleep consulting to put sleep back on the agenda, and help you get more of it. Parenting is hard enough without missing out on sleep!  

    I have been involved in health, education and training for the past 18+ years, and it has culminated in a passion for sleep (or that could have been when I became a mum).

     During this seminar I’ll cover my seven most important sleep tips to help your baby sleep well.

    This includes information on sleep cycles and sleep props and how these affect your child’s sleep. I’ll cover how you can cue your baby’s body and brain for sleep, and how to help avoid overtiredness. Plus all you need to know about routines, and more!

    Because everyone needs a good night’s sleep!
