About Birthcare Auckland

Having a baby is one of life’s most wonderful experiences. Whether this is your first baby or your fourth, we aim to make your birth experience the best it can be.

Birthcare is a Primary Maternity Hospital for birthing and postnatal care. We provide free support, care and education to mothers, babies and their families

You can choose to have your baby at Birthcare or transfer to Birthcare from another hospital for you postnatal stay.

Birthing at Birthcare

Birthing at Birthcare is free to all New Zealand residents and women eligible for free maternity care.

You’ll also be given a free private room for your postnatal stay.* Subject to availability

If you choose to have your baby at Birthcare you need to have a LMC (Lead Maternity Carer) and wanting a normal vaginal birth. Birthcare is a primary birthing and postnatal hospital. There are no obstetricians or operating theatres on site. Please speak with your LMC midwife if you have had a previous caesarean section. We encourage active birth (moving and changing positions) as well as the use of other complementary therapies. Aromatherapy burners (feel free to bring your oils), birthing stools and swiss balls are available for you to use.

Birthing Rooms

Each birthing room has a fridge and sound system with an ipod dock so you can play your own music. You are welcome to bring along anything else that will make you more comfortable.

Water Births

Our birthing suite has 4 specially designed birthing rooms,

3 with pools. Use of the pool during labour provides excellent pain relief. 60% of women birthing at Birthcare use water for pain relief. You may also choose to give birth in the water.

Pain Relief

Pain relief options available include hot water in the pools, portable entonox and pethidine via injection. As we are a primary birthing hospital, we do not offer epidurals or caesarean sections.

Complications

If your LMC has concerns during your labour you can be transferred to Auckland Hospital with ease (which is less than five minutes away). Your LMC can continue your care in conjunction with the specialists and midwives there.
