Our Tauranga Birthing Centre opened in Bethlehem in November 2014. and is now managed by NZ Health, Te Whatu Ora.

Bethlehem Birthing Centre is a warm, nurturing environment, which offers a comfortable sanctuary for new mums.

Our staff, including registered midwives, registered nurses, maternity care assistants and a chef, will ensure your first few days as a new mum are as stress-free and peaceful as possible. This will allow you to get on with the joyful experience of bonding with your baby.

As a primary birthing unit, Bethlehem Birthing Centre is not a hospital or clinical setting, which means we do not use medical intervention or drugs. Entonox (gas) is available.

Your Lead Maternity Carer (LMC) coordinates and plans the care of you and your baby and takes the lead at all times in the same way as in a home birth.

There are no specialists, obstetricians or GPs on site, but Bethlehem Birthing Centre works collaboratively with Tauranga Hospital in the event that a transfer is required.
