Visitors

Visitors are welcome at Mater Mothers’ Private Redland. Visiting hours are 10 am to 8 pm with no visitors permitted during quiet time between 1 pm and 3 pm, except for your partner or support person.

Rest is an important part of your recovery and we ask that you limit the number of visitors you have at any one time to allow yourself the peace and privacy you need. Your nursing staff may ask visitors to leave if they feel your visitors are tiring you. We hope you will understand this is necessary for your recovery.

A special note for your visitors

Visitors should wash their hands before cuddling your baby. For the comfort and safety of yourself and other patients, please ask your family and friends not to visit if they have an infectious illness or have recently had contact with an infectious disease such as measles, mumps, chickenpox, vomiting or diarrhoea, colds, flu or conjunctivitis. Please ensure children visiting the hospital are supervised at all times.

Rest period

We encourage mothers and their newborns to rest between the hours of 1 pm and 3 pm every day. During this time, there will be no visitors permitted to the wards except a partner or support person. Telephone calls will be diverted to the midwife’s staff base and we recommend that mobile phones are switched off during this time.

Friends and family

Friends and relatives may enquire about your progress by telephoning Mater Mothers’ Private Redland. Staff will only provide details authorised by you. To help us maintain your privacy, please ask friends and relatives to contact your immediate family for information about your progress.
