Helensville Birthing Centre offers a comfortable, private and supportive environment for women who choose to labour and birth in a homelike setting, with little or no medical intervention. There are four private postnatal stay rooms. Our centre is well staffed and focuses on caring for mothers and their newborns so they get the rest and support they need. Families and siblings can relax outdoors and bond with the new pēpi in Charm’s Garden, our peaceful outdoor space where you often hear birdsong.
Our Birthing Room
Our spacious and private birthing suite allows plenty of room for you to be active and upright while you labour and be supported by those you choose to have with you. Equipment such as birthing balls and wall bars are available for your use. You can also immerse yourself in our deep birthing pool as you relax and enhance the natural flow of labour hormones.
Our postnatal rooms are a home away from home. Each has a double bed with sidecar cot attached so pēpi is close to you. You have the privacy of your own bathroom, and a TV. A portable phone means you always have easy contact with birthing centre staff.
Meals & Kitchen Facilities
All meals are provided for the women who stay with us. There are many options for lunch and healthy dinners provided by our local caterer. Tasty midnight snacks are available for hungry mums. Partners need to provide their own lunch and dinners, but there is a microwave, allocated fridge space, and several food outlets and a supermarket nearby. Partners can get their own breakfast toast and cereal, and various hot beverages and snacks are always available.
