"I am Lena-Jo Haimona, 1 of 6 children born to Killee Edwards, who gave birth to me at River Ridge birth Centre/Hospital on the 21st of September 1999.
This year on the 28th of August 2016, I Lena-Jo am proud to say I gave birth to my first child at River Ridge East Birth Centre/Hospital.
My experience so far has been amazing, the staff are wonderful here, help and support is available to me whenever I want and knowing that makes me feel comfortable. I wouldn’t want to spend my first few days with my first baby anywhere else.
I’m proud to have made a bit of history here at River Ridge and plan to birth more here later on in the future."
"Our stay was the best thing to help us find our feet and feel confident with our new arrival. Thank you for all the support."
"Great start for me as a first time mum and not familiar with the system in New Zealand (I am Australian). We/I received the best care whilst here. Thank you to everyone."
"The staff midwives were amazing. The food was incredible. We have felt so safe during our stay. Staff have been so helpful, kind and friendly. Every question or concern we had was answered. We have felt so lucky to have had our little girl here. Thank you so much."
"Perfect, comfortable peaceful and nurturing environment, full of helpful friendly staff. Couldn’t ask for more."
