A Member of New Zealand Parliament Julie Anne Genter rode on Bicycle to hospital while in labour on Sunday.
Member of Parliament Julie Anne Genter announced the “big news” on her social media pages on Saturday, saying that “at 3.04am this morning we welcomed the newest member of our family”.
“I genuinely wasn’t planning to cycle in labour, but it did end up happening,” Ms Genter added.
“So glad we didn’t walk,” she told New Zealand-based media network Stuff.
She gave birth at Wellington Hospital, according to local media reports.
“My contractions weren’t that bad when we left at 2am to go to the hospital — though they were 2-3 min apart and picking up in intensity by the time we arrived 10 minutes later,” the 41-year-old Green Party politician said on social media on Saturday.
The Green party’s spokesperson for transport was not doing this for the first time.
She had similar trip when she was a minister three years ago.
