Birthing at Birthcare Auckland

Birthing at Birthcare Auckland

At Birthcare Auckland we offer a beautiful, calm and supportive space for you to birth and care for your baby. We can also support you with finding a midwife, booking an antenatal class, or booking one of our relaxing rooms for your postnatal stay.

We provide excellent 24 hour care and support for new mums, dads and their babies. Our aim is to make your birth experience the best it can be. We offer flexible choices so you can decide what suits you best.

If you birth at Birthcare Auckland you’ll be given a private room wherever possible. If you choose to have your baby at another hospital, you can still transfer to us for your postnatal stay.

Our birthing services are free to New Zealand residents and women eligible for free maternity care in New Zealand.
