In a post on social media, Genter said she “genuinely wasn’t planning to cycle in labour, but it did end up happening.”
She said that her contractions weren’t too bad when she and her partner left at 2 am to go to the hospital but picked up the intensity when they arrived at Wellington Hospital 10 minutes later.
She gave birth to a baby girl at 3:04 am local time.
“Amazingly now we have a healthy, happy little one sleeping, as is her dad,” she said, adding that she was feeling blessed to have had excellent care and support and a fast and uncomplicated birth.
In 2018, Genter also cycled to the hospital to give birth to her son, posting on Instagram that she and her partner cycled to Auckland City Hospital because there wasn’t enough room in the car for their “support crew”.
She said at the time that the ride put her in the “best possible mood.”
