We are a community facility offering birthing and postnatal care, situated in the heart of the rural community of Helensville.

Helensville Birthing Centre is available for families who choose to give birth in a low-tech environment and want the opportunity to rest and establish breastfeeding in the immediate postnatal period.

Our Philosophy

We believe that birth is a natural process.

E ai ki a mātou, he āhuatanga motuhake te whānau pēpi.

We believe women have the right to full information that enables them to choose their method and intervention, ensuring maximum safety and comfort for both mother and baby, throughout their stay with us.

E ai ki a mātou, he tika kia whakamōhio whānuitia ngā rangahautanga katoa, kia taea e ngā whaea te kōwhiri  ngā rautaki tiaki pēpi e hāngai ana, hei āhurutanga  mō rāua tahi.

We believe breastfeeding is essential to the early development of the parent/child relationship and the ongoing health of the infant.

Ko te whāngai ū te kai matua e pā ana ki te hononga  kei waenga i te whaea me tana pēpi me te hauora  tonutanga o te pēpi.
