New Zealand MP Julie Anne Genter cycled from her home to the hospital early on Sunday morning while in labour, giving birth just an hour later.

The Green party's spokesperson for transport, who is a well-known advocate for cycling in the country, shared the news via a Facebook post. Her husband accompanied her during the cycle to Wellington hospital on his bike, with Genter claiming that the contractions during the ride "weren't that bad."
