National Women's Health provides comprehensive maternity care for women and babies during pregnancy and after birth. More than 6,500 babies are born here each year. Our newborn service, which is the largest newborn unit in Australasia, provides care for nearly 1600 babies a year that are born prematurely or require extra care.

Our Walk in Centre staff continue to work hard to provide you with the care that you need, but we will be delivering care in a different way in the light of Covid-19.
Thank you so much for your patience and understanding.

There may be a small number of other cases at the discretion of the Charge Nurse or Clinical Nurse Managers. Please contact the Labour and Birthing Suite on 09 307 2888 if you have any questions or concerns.
Auckland DHB Maternity is now restricting visitors/support people to all in-patient and out-patient areas. Please not bring visitors or support people at any time, including children under the age of 16 (unless discussed with and approved by the midwife in charge of the area). We understand that this may be a difficult undertaking and we thank you for your understanding during this time.
