Description

Pregnancy and childbirth are exciting and life changing experiences. At the Auckland Obstetric Centre we understand just how special this time is for both mother and baby.

AOC is a unique practice made up of specialist obstetricians and support staff. We work as a team sharing patient care and expertise to provide the highest standard of pregnancy and birth care.

AOC provides a full range of care including antenatal, labour, birth and postnatal care.

We also have a paediatrician based at our centre and close links with physiotherapists, lactation consultants, psychologists and midwives to provide complete pregnancy care.

Outside these hours, AOC patients with urgent obstetric problems can also call the duty doctor on 09 367 1200.

Referral Expectations

You may book at AOC at any stage of your pregnancy, either for full pregnancy care or for a one-off consultation.  You do not need a doctor's referral to book with us, but we are happy to accept referrals from GPs or midwives.

We like to see you for your initial booking visit at about your 9th week. This appointment takes 45 minutes.  Please contact us early in your pregnancy preferably at about your 6th to 7th week to ensure a suitable booking time.
