Community Birth Services


Community Birth Services is a Charitable Trust that provides free antenatal classes in Palmerston North. We are the largest provider of antenatal classes in the Manawatu. Our classes are relaxed and informal sessions that help you prepare for the birth of your baby, and for early parenting. Partners, family or friends who are going to support you at your birth are welcomed.

We also provide:

  • free pregnancy testing
  • pregnancy yoga
  • new parents' groups


We are funded by the MidCentral District Health board and our classes are facilitated by trained Child Birth Educators.
