Proving that New Zealand is truly a land like no other, Julie Anne Genter, an MP for the country's Green Party, has ridden her bike to the hospital to give birth to her first baby.

She has recently returned to her role as Prime Minister, following six weeks of maternity leave.

Julie Anne Genter through an Instagram post explained that her vehicle did not have enough room for her support system and therefore she made a decision to embrace the simplicity of a bike ride.

She added on Instagram, "It also put me in the best possible mood!"

She will be the second Government minister to give birth this year, after Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern gave birth to her first daughter, Neve, in June.

Minister for Women and Associate Transport and Health Minister Julie Anne Genter posted a photo of herself on Instagram, Sunday morning, standing beside her bike outside Auckland City Hospital.

Both she and Ms Genter attended the public Auckland City Hospital.

It's wonderful news for Genter after she and her partner suffered two miscarriages.

Ms Ardern, who was elected a year ago, became only the second world leader to give birth while in office after Pakistan's Benazir Bhutto in 1990.

Genter is 42 weeks pregnant with their first child and she says she was going to the hospital for an induction.

Genter, who was born in Minnesota and studied at the University of California, Berkeley, joined the left-leaning Green Party as a volunteer shortly after migrating to New Zealand in 2006, and she has represented the party in Parliament since 2011.
