Teen Parent

Our Teen Parent service works to ensure teen parents are supported, connected and empowered to ensure the necessary care and services are available to them during and after pregnancy.

Services are available to young parents under the age of 20 years who are pregnant or have young children and live in the Napier and Hastings District.  We welcome referrals from other agencies such as midwives and GPs or by the young parent contacting the Coordinator directly.

This service can offer:

Support and advocacy to parents who have minimal support from whānau or the community

Support and education about becoming a parent

Support to help the young parents stay in education and or training

Feedback from this service:

"The Teen Parents service has been very helpful for our whanau. They have supported us on our journey and provided the information that we needed" (Teen Parent Client).
