Warkworth Birthing Centre opened in February 2000. It is situated in quiet 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 call you daily and continue to provide your post-natal care at home after discharge from the birthing centre.

We hope you will consider coming to Warkworth for your birth and postnatal stay.
