BURWOOD BIRTHING UNIT
Just Right for the Birth of your Baby
The birth of your baby is one of life's most exciting and memorable events.
Choosing your midwife and where your baby will be born are two of the most important decisions that you will need to make at this time. At the Burwood Birthing Unit, we believe that every woman deserves the very best care throughout her pregnancy, the labour and birth of her baby, and the postnatal time.
Our midwives provide skilled, professional care with a focus on you as an individual. You can be confident that your needs and those of your baby and your partner will be well cared for. We welcome you to share this special time with family/whanau and friends.
The Burwood Birthing Unit is a safe, peaceful and relaxing environment for the birth of your baby. Our birthing rooms are fully equipped to provide all you need for comfort and safety, while our spacious lounge, kitchen, bathroom facilities and bedrooms cater for your stay with us after the birth. Our birthing pool is available for those who wish to use the soothing power of water. If it is your choice, your midwife will guide you through a water birth, a wonderful experience for you and your baby.
As you nurture your newborn, we provide continued care, offering breastfeeding and health care advice. Postnatal midwifery visits from your Lead Maternity Carer ensure ongoing support in the first weeks of your new life together.
