Bay of Plenty maternity facilities

This page lists the maternity facilities available in the Bay of Plenty area.

Secondary maternity facilities are designed for women and babies who experience complications and may require care from an obstetrician, anaesthetist, paediatrician as well as a midwife. Well women may use these facilities in the absence of other maternity facilities in their area.

Primary maternity facilities are designed for well women who have no complications during pregnancy. They’re run and staffed by midwives.

There are no tertiary maternity facilities in the Bay of Plenty. If you have more complex maternity needs which require specialist, multidisciplinary care, you’ll generally be referred to a maternity facility in Waikato DHB instead.

For information on the different kinds of maternity facility, see Where to give birth.
