The Pudding Club is a piloting, non-profit organisation that provides pregnant parents free postnatal education in the antenatal stages, with a focus on teaching proven preventative measures for the behaviours of colic, reflux, lactose and dairy overload, while teaching practical parenting skills.
While we have a lighter side that involves a passion for puddings, which all parents receive during the course, we are also seriously passionate about providing a service based on the Ministry of Health policy of 'Better, Sooner, More Convenient Health Care in the Community.' We actively seek to work with community health professionals and hospital based-clinicians to deliver education that keeps our communities healthier. We deliver this by having postnatal health professionals and organisations speak at our courses in hope that we build a safety net of support and a 'postnatal community village' for parents, while empowering confident parenting, stable environments and positive mental and physical health outcomes for the whole family.
The Pudding Club is in the early stages of development, currently piloting courses in Rangiora, North Canterbury, New Zealand while working hard to implement the necessary measures to become a registered charity and provide branches throughout New Zealand in 2017.
