Pregnancy and becoming a parent means lots of changes and challenges.

This booklet was created for young mums and dads in Christchurch, with a significant amount of input from other young parents and parents-to-be.

Young mums and dads who wished that they had more information about parenting before they got pregnant and while they were pregnant have shared their experience with St John of God Waipuna and Christchurch City Council to create this directory.

By young parents, for young parents

The photos are all of young mums, dads and their children from the Christchurch area. All the tips were written by Christchurch’s young parents for other young people in similar situations. Whanau, friends and supporters of young mums and dads will find the directory useful as well.
