The pregnant woman and a teenage boy were rushed to hospital following a two car collision on Whangarei Heads Rd around 9.20pm.
Two other people were injured in the crash, but their conditions were less serious and they were not taken to hospital, police said.
The teenage boy has now been flown to Auckland's Starship Hospital by helicopter.
The serious crash unit is investigating.
