As soon as your pregnancy is confirmed, we recommend you sign up to Plunket’s Pregnancy and Parenting Education Programme (PPE) ????

Plunket runs PPE in a number of South Island locations. You can check if we’re in a town near you at: [ Plunketppe.org.nz Link ]

Not in a PPE location? No worries. You can book in to attend a similar class (they're often referred to as antenatal classes)...

Plunket turns 110 today! <3

The Plunket Society was founded in 1907 in Dunedin by child health visionary, Sir Frederic Truby King.

His vision was to help mothers and save the babies who were dying from malnutrition and disease.

Today Plunket sees over 90% of all babies born in New Zealand, and is committed to make the difference of a lifetime in the first 1000 days of a child’s life.

Young children don’t understand the risks around traffic. Keep them safe and always hold their hand to cross the road.

Winter’s coming – and that can mean runny noses, coughs, colds and sickness.

Having a warm, dry house really helps to keep your family healthy and well. Cold, damp homes are linked to poor health in young children and babies.

House not well insulated? You might be eligible for Government subsidies. Check out [ Govt.nz Link ]
