Welcome to Mater Mothers

We are committed to providing the very best maternity care, welcoming more than 12,000 babies into the world every year, and supporting families each step of the way. 

Since 1960, Mater Mothers' Hospitals have been privileged to play a special role in many families' beautiful moments everyday, and we would love to be part of yours.

Mater Mothers is one of Australia’s largest and most experienced maternity service providers, with five leading private maternity hospitals across Queensland, including Mater Mothers’ Private BrisbaneMater Mothers’ Private Redland, Mater Mothers' Private Mackay, Mater Mothers' Private Rockhampton, and Mater Mothers' Private Townsville.

We also have a public maternity hospital in South Brisbane. 

Are you expecting? Congratulations!

Having a baby is an exciting time and we want to ensure that your baby receives the best possible start in life—we’re here to support you through preconception, pregnancy, birth and early motherhood, making Mater Mothers the perfect place to start your journey.

The first step is to visit your GP for a check-up to confirm your pregnancy and request a referral to one of our maternity hospitals.  

If you plan to have your baby at one of our private hospitals, you will need to ask your GP to refer you to a private obstetrician who practices at Mater. Prior to your GP visit, it is helpful for you to know which obstetrician you would like to manage your private maternity care.

Bundle of Joy at Mater Mothers' Private Brisbane

When you choose to have your baby at Mater Mothers’ Private Brisbane, you can enjoy access to a range of Mater services at a discounted rate by purchasing the Bundle of Joy card.   

The Bundle of Joy provides price certainty and value for money by bundling together Mater services and additional costs associated with giving birth. This helps to alleviate some out-of-pocket costs associated with giving birth that are not necessarily covered by private health insurance or Medicare.
