New Zealand MP Julie Anne Genter took her bike early this Sunday morning to go … to the maternity ward! “My contractions weren’t that bad when we left at 2 a.m. to go to the hospital – although they were 2-3 minutes apart and picking up again by the time we got there. minutes later, “wrote the ecologist MP on her Facebook account.

She had already announced the news on her social networks. “My companion and I cycled because there was not enough room in the car for the assistance team…”, she had specified on her Instagram account.
