Birthing centre turns 21 Maternal milestone: Charm Torrance and her granddaughter Beth Torrance-Hetherington cut the birthday cake for the Helensville Birthing Centre. By RANI TIMOTI The Helensville Birthing Cen- tre has notched up 10 years for its post-natal care and 21 years overall. At their celebration, families praised the staff for their over- whelming support and encour- agement during their stay with midwives specialising in natural childbirth. One of the mothers, Mihi Shaw, says giving birth to her third baby at the community facility was amazing particu- larly with the confidence and support provided by staff. The Helensville resident also benefited from the atmos- phere, privacy and special con- nection and bond for baby and her husband. If I could wind back the clock I'd tell my whanau to have their babies at the Helensville Birthing Centre.'' Other parents likened the venue to a motel and enjoyed the relaxation despite sleep deprivation, learning basic principles such as breastfeed- ing and using nappy wraps and the good food -- especially for the new fathers. The centre is owned by the Helensville District Health Trust and runs a free service as an alternative to hospital care. It is available for families living in Rodney and west Auckland and offers low- intervention birthing and post natal facilities. It is fully licensed with baby friendly certification and, as a boutique facility, only four mums can stay at a time. Long-time manager Charm Torrance has witnessed its milestones since 1989. Right from the beginning everybody was innovative and they still are. They're always ready to learn. The centre has always been low-tech and staff have learnt about areas like homeopathy. They've always been caring and community- centred.'' The centre also won the top Baby Friendly group in New Zealand for its breastfeeding and mother baby services through the efforts of Baby Friendly co-ordinator and lac- tation consultant Claire Payn. We never rest on our laurels and we've got exciting plans for 2011,'' Charm says. Plans include providing a learning centre focused on breastfeeding with accredited courses and continuing their partnership with the Helens- ville Women and Family Cen- tre.Founding chairwoman of the trust, Alison McKenzie says the community battled to keep Helensville's maternity hos- pital which was built after World War Two with the baby boom in the rural population. Despite initial success with a rural petition, the hospital closed because of funding struggles -- but in its place came the centre. Visit www.birthcentre.co.nz for more information. Meanwhile, a pram walking group has started in Helensville. Walkers meet out- side the Alison McKenzie Com- munity House every Thursday from 9.30am. No registrations needed.
