Birth Suite

The birthing rooms at Mater Mothers’ Hospital provide a warm and home-like atmosphere for the birth of your baby. Each birthing room is self-contained, with a television, telephone, CD player and aromatherapy burner.

Your midwife will help you achieve your individual birth plan, and make the most of pain relief options. Refreshments are provided for you and your support person. Meals and snacks for your support person can also be obtained from the café or vending machines on level 5 of the hospital.

Operating suites

If you have a caesarean birth with a spinal anaesthetic, we welcome one support person into the operating suite and will provide your support person with appropriate theatre clothing. Your support person will not be permitted in the operating suite if you need to have a caesarean with a general anaesthetic. No additional visitors are allowed in the recovery room.
