Baby Care Assistants

Mater Mothers’ Private Brisbane is committed to providing mothers and babies with the best possible support and environment in the early days of parenthood.

Baby care assistants are available for all mothers in Mater Mothers’ Private Brisbane between 11 pm and 6 am every night to assist with settling the baby allowing the mother get much needed rest.

The baby care assistant will try to settle the baby in the inpatient room as a first preference, to allow mother and baby to establish optimal breastfeeding results and to reduce the risk of infection. However, baby care assistants can also care for the baby outside the inpatient room for periods of up to one hour.
