Women's Health and Newborn Annual Report 2017-2018Women's Health and Newborn Annual Report


Counties Manukau Health (CM Health) is pleased to provide the Women’s Health and Newborn Annual Report for the 2017/2018 financial year.

​This report recognises the significant work that our maternity services, both hospital and community-based, have done to support the health of women living in the Counties Manukau district and their whaanau. Of note, as women are able to choose where they give birth, we therefore provide care for some women residing outside the DHBs area and some women living in Counties Manukau are cared for elsewhere.​

The activities described in the report align with the CM Health Maaori Action Health Plan and the New Zealand Maternity Standards, as well as the important contribution to improving equity. CM Health remains committed to the needs of our community and strives to provide appropriate, accessible, quality clinical care to our women, babies and whaanau.
