Revealed: Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's big plans after giving birth

The Prime Minister looks set to announce the birth of her baby the same way she announced her pregnancy - on social media.

Jacinda Ardern's office has released her plans following the birth, and Newshub can exclusively reveal some of her plans once she returns to work.

After six weeks of maternity leave, Newshub understands the Prime Minister will be travelling to New York in late September for the United Nations General Assembly.

Both baby and partner Clarke Gayford will be in tow when she addresses the assembly.

She and Gayford will announce the birth, presumably on social media. She won't give any interviews for a while, but will address media and pose for photos as she leaves Auckland Hospital with the baby.

Ms Ardern won't let Winston Peters take over her prime ministerial duties until the moment she walks through the hospital doors in labour.

In other personal news, not even the Prime Minister can circumnavigate the red tape of resource consent. When the couple moved into their new home in March, they were told that for security reasons they would need a fence built around the perimeter of the property.

Newshub understands the builder they hired at their own personal cost has been having issues with the consent process - and three months on, that fence still isn't up.
