Women we look after at AOC give birth in the labour and birthing suite of National Women’s Health at Auckland City Hospital. Situated on the 9th floor, all the rooms are spacious with en-suite bathrooms and toilets. From most rooms there are views across the city and there is ample space for family and visitors. Many of the rooms have hot tubs. In the event of any problems in labour paediatricians, anaesthetists and a caesarean section theatre are all close at hand.
Many thousands of women have benefited from the supportive and warm atmosphere of National Women’s. All of us at AOC feel it is a very caring and safe place to give birth. If you are admitted to hospital at any time during your pregnancy or have a problem that needs urgent review outside of clinic hours you will usually be seen in the Women’s Assessment Unit (WAU) – also on the ninth floor of Auckland City Hospital.
