Booking-in service

Mater Mothers’ Private Brisbane midwives provide a comprehensive preadmission service. This incorporates sharing of information, in relation to your general, medical and obstetric history and is a valuable aspect of preparing for your stay with us.

To book into Mater Mothers' Private Brisbane for the birth of your baby, please either

  • complete the maternity registration form and post it to Private Bookings, Level 5, Mater Mothers’ Hospitals, Raymond Terrace South Brisbane Qld 4101. Please do not return the form by fax or email.
  • complete the online booking form using the steps below:
    1.  Register for a Mater Patient Portal Account. You only need an email address and password.
    2.  Once registered, you can complete your patient registration form to book in online. 

Once your booking is processed by the hospital you will receive an information package in the mail confirming your maternity booking. Please ensure you read all this information carefully.

You will also receive a separate letter informing you of the date and time a midwife will contact you, by telephone, to discuss your health and pregnancy in preparation for the birth of your baby. Your telephone interview with our midwife will take approximately twenty minutes.

If you have a hearing impairment or speak a language other than English, please arrange for someone to assist you during the appointment.

We wish you well with your pregnancy and look forward to making your stay with us a special one. If you have any enquiries or do not receive an information package within two weeks of sending your registration form, please contact the booking-in service on telephone 07 3163 8847.

Private health insurance

We recommend that you talk with your private health insurer before you come to hospital, to ensure you are aware of your entitlements. Ask them whether you are covered for neonatal, special or intensive care, and if you are required to pay an excess or co-payment. Ensure that you have clear answers to these questions.

You may need to upgrade to family cover well before your expected date of delivery. All additional or other out-of-pocket expenses, such as telephone calls, are paid before going home.

Self-insured patients

If you are a self-insured patient (paying for your hospitalisation yourself) you will need to contact Mater Mothers’ Private Brisbane to discuss costs and obtain a quote. Staff are available to discuss costs with you on telephone 07 3163 8847 between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm weekdays (excluding public holidays).

Cost estimates are based on the information available at the time and are subject to change if any aspect of your stay changes due to medical necessity (e.g. if complications arise).
