Visitors are welcome at Mater Mothers’ Private Brisbane during visiting hours, 10 am to 1 pm and 3 pm to 8 pm daily.

We recommend limiting the number of visitors to ensure you and your baby get time to rest. Please encourage your visitors to telephone before they come so you can suggest a time convenient for you and your baby. Partners can visit at any time.

Visitors should only cuddle your baby with your permission and must wash their hands before doing so. For the health and safety of you and your baby, and other mothers and babies, please ask your family and friends not to visit if they have an infectious illness or have recently had contact with an infectious disease. Please ensure children 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.
