Overview of Whirihia services

We offer cohesive, whaanau-led care; achieving outcomes focused on empowering whanau and communities to engage in services they feel comfortable with, supporting them to make positive decisions that support the health and well-being of peepi, maamaa and their whanau

Whirihia Waananga

Early Engagement in the antenatal period provides a strong opportunity to walk alongside a whanau through their journey of parenthood. We ensure antenatal education isn’t seen as separate from the whole journey of raising a child, but as the initial platform to begin making positive choices and utilising the appropriate support to enable whanau to give the very best for their children. Through waananga we promote holistic health & well-being, so whaanau make informed decisions.
