Congratulations on your pregnancy!

We're so excited for you. You're about to embark on one of life's most exciting journeys. The joy of a new baby joining your family & starting out as a parent.


You can attend Hatched Antenatal classes in Tauranga, New Zealand, or take our online classes anywhere in the world, in the comfort of your own home.


Antenatal classes: $235

We believe our classes are the best choice for you and your growing family. Hatched antenatal classes are run by a practicing midwife, giving you access to all the information you need to know to prepare you for your birthing journey. 

Being prepared for life once you take your new baby home matters to us. We know that you will leave feeling prepared and confident for the arrival of your new baby.

We know it's not always easy or practical to get yourself along to our classes. That’s why we’ve created our Hatched Online classes. From the comfort of your own home and in your own time, we’ll help you prepare for your labour and birth.

You will get all the same content and expert insights, with the ability to watch the material again to keep your knowledge fresh in your mind and ready to use. 

Our aim

We aim to prepare you for any eventuality in labour and to inspire you to feel great about whatever type of birth you end up having.

As well as covering aspects of labour and birth, we will address the early days and weeks of parenthood, including plenty of practical tips and advice on how to care for your newborn. We aim to equip you to feel confident and prepared at the other end.

Our emphasis

There is a lot of information and advice available which can feel rather overwhelming for new parents to be.

Hatched antenatal and parenting classes won't spend all of the time teaching you much of what you already know or have heard. Our emphasis is on the practical and relevant information you need and want to know.

What makes Hatched different?

At Hatched we pride ourselves on providing the very best classes available. There is a lot of choice available, so what makes us different?

  • Classes that prepare you for birth and most importantly, preparing you for life AFTER you baby is born.

  • We will support you whatever type of birth you are aiming for.

  • Sessions with the experts.

  • Regular live Q&A sessions & a Facebook forum for further support.

  • Classes run by a practising midwife.
