Midwifery Service

Postnatal Care (After Birth)

Staying in Hospital/Birth Centre After the Birth

Approximately 4-6 hours after the birth of your baby, if both mother and baby are well, you will be transferred to Birthcare Auckland. Please remember to bring a car seat for your car, to transport your baby safely. Your care will be continued at Birthcare, where you will be able to rest and become proficient with breastfeeding your baby.

If you or your baby need further care or you have had a caesarean birth, you will be transferred to one of the maternity wards.

At times the wards are very busy and the staff may request that if all is well with you both, you transfer to Birthcare Auckland for the remainder of your stay to free up the ward for those who need the beds more urgently.
