“When I found out Helensville had a birthing centre I knew straight away that I wanted to have my first baby there. What a fantastic facility we have — a beautiful large birthing room with a birthing pool, queen sized bed and lovely aftercare rooms all with ensuites. I had requested in my birth plan a dark quiet room and when I arrived it was just that — welcoming, warm & dark. It was 9pm and I couldn’t wait to get into the birthing pool that was being filled. The feeling of warmth and weightlessness was amazing and I’d highly recommend it to all mothers to be. At 11:34pm and completely drug free, I lifted my baby girl, Indiana out of the water; she was the best Father’s Day gift I could ever give to my partner, Trent. Shortly after, I was transferred to my lovely, spacious, home-away-from-home bedroom. Our visitors commented on how wonderful it was. The staff were so helpful, the food was excellent and it was amazing having the support of the lactation consultants there. If you’re able to, choose Helensville Birthing Centre — it’s a real treasure and I’m certain it helped me to have a short, smooth birth as I felt so safe and comfortable.”
