Our service is free to all those eligible for care in New Zealand hospitals
New South Auckland birthing centre will help with dire shortage of postnatal beds
Nga Hau Mangere Birthing Centre is due to open early in 2019.
Nga Hau Mangere Birthing Centre will be a warm, nurturing environment, which offers a comfortable sanctuary for new mums.
Regular tours for parents to be will be held once the facility is opened.
Our staff, including registered midwives, 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, Nga Hau Mangere 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 Nga Hau Mangere Birthing Centre will work collaboratively with local DHBs in the event that a transfer is required.
