Births and deliveries The term ‘birth’ describes each individual baby born, whereas ‘delivery’ describes a birth event that may result in more than one baby. For instance, total deliveries at CM Health facilities were 7,325 in 2013, whereas total births from those deliveries were 7426, due to 101 multiple births. On average, 1.3% of all deliveries are multiple births. In addition, the number of births and deliveries varies depending on the location of the birth event and the pregnant woman’s residency status. For example, actual Counties Manukau total births were 8,340 in 2012, but the CM Health facility births were only 8,051.
