Warkworth Birthing Centre

Public Service

Description

Warkworth Birthing Centre opened in February 2000. It is situated in rural surroundings on a hill above the town and has a quiet, homely atmosphere.

Full birthing facilities are available for normal births and a pool is available for labour and birth. Your midwife provides your labour and birth care with your second midwife coming in to assist at the birth.

After the birth of your baby and until you go home there are midwives, registered nurses and maternity assistants to provide care for you and your baby. Your midwife will visit or phone you daily and continue to provide your postnatal care at home after discharge from the birthing centre.

If contemplating a normal birth or if you have had a previous normal vaginal birth then why not think about birthing at the Warkworth Birthing Centre?
