Kidsafe Queensland Partnership 

To give you peace of mind that your precious cargo is travelling safely, Mater Mothers' Hospitals have partnered with Kidsafe Queensland to provide a professional child car restraint fitting service at our South Brisbane campus (within Hancock Street Car Park). 

In Brisbane alone, it estimated up to 90 per cent of child car restraints are not fitted correctly. Kidsafe Queensland staff are professionally trained Type 1 Child Car Restraint Fitters who can provide expertise on car seats, car seat laws, fitting and checks of car seats. 

Baby capsule hire is also available for three or six months. You can find more information here.

Babies born prematurely or of low-birth weight should contact the experts at Kidsafe Queensland to ensure baby’s car seat is suitable and baby is correctly positioned.

Before returning home, all families, particularly those with premature or low birth weight babies, are recommended to use Kidsafe Queensland’s checking service to ensure that the baby is positioned and harnessed correctly. If not, they can hire a baby capsule. Contact Kidsafe Queensland on 07 3854 1829 to book.

Appointments are available between 10 am – 2 pm every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (excluding public holidays). Bookings are essential.

Level 1, Hancock Street Car Park. 
Follow signs to the reserved parking spaces where the car restraint checking, install and hire is undertaken. Look for the Kidsafe Queensland signs. 

Families who have made a booking with Kidsafe Queensland will need to take a ticket and enter Hancock Street Car Park. Tickets can be validated for free exit on completion of the service by Kidsafe Queensland staff or attendants within the Car Parks Customer Service Centre who are located on level 1, Hancock Street Car Park.
