The contractions had already begun and so Julie Ann Ginter, a member of parliament from the New Zealand Green Party, was rushed to the hospital at 2am on Friday night to give birth. By bike. This is not the first time.
Ginter shared her story on social media, including photos showing the 10-minute drive to the hospital, her arrival in the parking lot, and the birth of her daughter just an hour later, at 3:04 a.m.
Ginter claims she had no intention of cycling to the hospital, but “it happened.”
She wrote, “My contractions weren’t too bad when we left the hospital at 2 a.m. – although they were two to three minutes apart, and the intensity was increasing as we arrived.” “I was laughing in the parking lot after one of the contractions.”

She described on Facebook and Instagram that they have a “healthy and happy little girl who is ‘currently sleeping like her daddy’.” MP Ginter shares adorable photos and thanks the doctors for this wonderful moment.
The heroic journey of the green politician is not entirely new. Also in 2018, I cycled to the hospital to give birth. “My partner and I went cycling because there was not enough room in the car for people who wanted to help me,” she wrote at the time.
Even then, in her words, cycling was “born out of necessity” for the politician who had repeatedly advocated the promotion of cycling as an important form of city transportation.
