The wait for the birth of Jacinda Ardern's first baby after she went into labour at Auckland Hospital today continues.

The Prime Minister's Office confirmed that Ardern arrived at Auckland hospital, with her partner Clarke Gayford, to have her baby, early this morning.

There won't be any more formal announcements from the Prime Minister's Office until Ms Ardern and Mr Gayford announce the birth - likely on social media.

The pregnant Prime Minister arrived at Auckland City Hospital accompanied by her partner Clarke Gayford on Thursday morning.

Ardern's due date was June 17.

"I am able to do what I'm doing because I have enormous support around me and it makes me quite privileged".

"That a woman can be the prime minister of New Zealand and choose to have a family while in office says a lot about the kind of country we are and that we can be - modern, progressive, inclusive, and equal", Shaw said.

Ms Ardern found out about the pregnancy last October and told Mr Gayford about the news through Facebook video call.

Ms Ardern has said there would be little disruption during her time off as she would stay in regular contact with Mr Peters and involved in major decisions.

Ardern will follow in the footsteps of the late Pakistan prime minister Benazir Bhutto, who in 1990 became the only women in recorded history to give birth while in power.
