At Birthcare Huntly we are here to provide you with excellent 24 hour care and support for you and your baby.
We aim to make your birth experience the best that it can be and offer flexible choices so you can decide what suits you best.
Birthing at Birthcare is free to New Zealand residents and women eligible for free maternity care in New Zealand.

We welcome you to have your partner or support person be with you overnight while you have your postnatal stay with us. We have fold out beds if required.
We welcome all women wanting to transfer to Birthcare following a hospital birth, including those who have had caesarean sections.
If you choose to have your baby at Birthcare we will support you, your family/whanau and support people, along with your LMC in promoting your planned normal birth.
We are a primary birthing and postnatal centre. We encourage all people birthing with us to have a positive and active active birth (moving and changing positions) as well as the use of other complementary therapies.
We support you with our spacious birthing rooms and furnishings that assist you with keeping active while you labour. Please speak with your LMC midwife if Birthcare Huntly is the right place for your birthing option.
