Wellington Classes

Educators Sharing Calmbirth in Wellington

Vida Rye has been offering Calmbirth Courses in Wellington since 2008.  In May 2021 Alicia Ferguson arrived in Wellington and we were able to offer more courses to cater for the waitlists! Then in 2022 Alicia went overseas to work as a midwife.  In 2023 Vida is taking a sabbatical from facilitating courses and so her last course for a while will be February 2023. 

From February 2023, Deb Peters (Auckland educator) will be facilitating in-person, at-venue courses in Wellington on the last weekend in each month as availability allows, and will also be offering regular courses via Zoom.  Please check below for dates.

The NZ Government’s COVID-19 Protection Framework is no longer in place, so in-person, at-venue courses without restrictions are now taking place, although prior to attendance you will need to confirm that you are not sick or isolating.

Further 2023 courses will be posted here as soon as they are confirmed.

Please note though that Vida will be taking a sabbatical from facilitating courses in 2023 (after 14 years of offering them) so courses will only go ahead in person at a venue after February 2023 if there is an educator available to travel to Wellington. 

Otherwise there are always zoom options available with Deb up in Auckland over evenings or weekends.

If a course listed above is fully booked, please do still complete an online booking form enquiry as you can be put on the waitlist in case an unexpected space arises.  Sometimes an extra course can be put on if the waitlist gets very long – according to due times and educator availability  (and of course COVID-19 permitting!)
