Raranga teacher Jenny Firmin from Whanganui says teaching whānau how to weave rather than doing it for them creates opportunities for them to think about how they are preparing to welcome their new pēpi into the world.

The tikanga associated with harakeke weaving and wahakura have many similarities with pregnancy, birth and raising tamariki, and Hineteiwaiwa is the goddess of both weaving and childbirth.

Ms Firmin is part of a wahakura wānanga this weekend at Te Hotu Manawa o Rangitāne Marae in Palmerston North hosted by Mokopuna Ora, in partnership with Best Care Whakapai Hauora.
