With the downgrading of COVID-19 alert levels we are now able to return to 'business as usual'.

From 10 June, partners and whānau are welcome to be present to support Mum during labour and birth, and partners are welcome to stay with mum for her postnatal care.

Visiting hours will be from 2pm-8pm each day. Please check with Mum first that she would like to receive visitors and if she is sleeping you may need to return at another time.

Tours of the centre will also resume. Check each birthing centre's page for days/times. No booking required. We look forward to showing you around!

The majority of our support groups and other wrap around services are back to normal.  Please get in touch if you need any further information

- if you feel unwell or are experiencing symptoms of cold or flu please do not come to the centre.

- visitors entering the centre may be screened for temperature.

- vigorous hand hygiene is essential.

The team at Birthing Centre sincerely apologises for any stress visitor restrictions have caused. However, we are the guardians of mothers safety during these difficult times.

Kia Kaha!
