NZ Minister for Women cycles to hospital to give birth

New Zealand's Minister for Women, Anne Genter, has revealed she rode her bike to Auckland City Hospital to give birth earlier this month because there "wasn't enough room in the car".

The Green's MP shared a photo of her arrival at the hospital.

Genter, 38, noted on social media on August 10 that she was "40 weeks + 4 days" pregnant, and "still waiting" to give birth. "In the first week of August we're expecting our first child".

"Beautiful Sunday morning for a bike ride, to the hospital, for an induction to finally have this baby", she posted.

"But it also put me in the best possible mood". The prime minister, 38, returned to work this month.

Before she left the capital, she said there was a sense of hopefulness among women seeing government ministers becoming mothers for the first time.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern leaves hospital with her baby daughter, Niamh Te Aroha Ardern Gayford on June 21.

A playground is now being built on parliament's grounds amid a push by the Speaker of the House to make the precinct more family friendly.

Genter's bicycle ride Sunday was not the first trip to Auckland City Hospital to make headlines.

Gayford is now a stay-at-home parent to Neve.

"Julie Anne has been exercising, so it's totally on brand", she said.

Ms Genter was born in the United States and attended the University of California, Berkeley before moving to New Zealand in 2006 and working as a transportation planner. She previously worked as a transport and planning consultant.

Public transport and bicycles are popular methods of transportation for Green Party lawmakers, whose policies have traditionally centred on environmental advocacy.

The move has been praised by many, including Genter's colleagues.
