Hāpai Te Hauora congratulates PM and Clarke Gayford
Mōkori anō a mihi ka rere ki a Jacinda Ardern katahi anō ka whakamōhio mai kua hapū ia. Ka tika rā te kōrero he taonga te tamaiti, nō reira, ka rere ngā whakaaro ki a koe Jacinda, otirā ki tō whānau.
Hāpai Te Hauora warmly congratulates Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, Clarke Gayford and their whānau on the announcement of their child due in June.
Today Prime Minister Ardern announced on her Instagram account that the couple were expecting their first child. Hāpai welcomes the announcement and has formally invited the Prime Minister to receive a wahakura for her new baby.
"Wahakura is a traditional Māori concept but they are used today among Māori and non-Māori parents alike as safe sleep devices," says Fay Selby-Law GM of the National SUDI Prevention Service at Hāpai Te Hauora. "We will present a wahakura to the Prime Minister as a symbol of our support for all parents and tamariki in Aotearoa."
