Auckland, New Zealand (CNN)A New Zealand lawmaker made her own way to a hospital to have her baby, covering the kilometers from her suburban home to a maternity ward on a bicycle.
The move neatly ties together Green Party MP Julie Anne Genter's roles as Minister for Woman and Associate Minister for Transport and for Health.
Genter, 42 weeks pregnant, posted a photo on Instagram of her ride to Auckland City Hospital Sunday morning local time.
"Beautiful Sunday morning for a bike ride, to the hospital, for an induction to finally have this baby. This is it, wish us luck! (My partner and I cycled because there wasn't enough room in the car for the support crew... but it also put me in the best possible mood!) #42weekspregnant #cycling #bicyclesarethebest," she wrote.
The Green Party tweeted that Genter's pregnant cycle ride was "the most onbrand thing ever."
Genter is a strong cycling advocate. Announcing her pregnancy in February, she posted an image to Facebook of a couple on bikes with a baby saying "we're going to have to get an additional seat for the bikes."
US-born Genter moved to New Zealand in 2006 and has been a member of the country's Parliament since 2011. Her left-wing Green Party supports the current coalition government led by the Labour Party.
