If you are concerned about yourself or your baby at any stage, please telephone the hospital on 07 3163 7000 to speak to a Birth Suite midwife. The number is available 24 hours a day.
Please note: Large suitcases may need to be taken home for the duration of your stay, as storage is limited and these large items may be a hazard in an emergency situation.
Please note: one packet of newborn nappies will be provided to you on admission.
Cameras may be used in the Birth Suite at the discretion of the medical and midwifery staff involved in the birth. Please respect the privacy of staff by asking their permission first. Video images are not permitted.
As Mater Mothers’ Private Brisbane is unable to accept liability for losses, please bring essential items only. A lockable drawer is provided in each room. If you place anything in the drawer, please remember to lock it and keep the key with you at all times. If you need extra cash to buy a newspaper or other items, an Automatic Teller Machine is located on level 5 of the hospital, for your convenience.
Smoking is not permitted in Mater hospital buildings.
Smoking while you are breastfeeding is not recommended. If you wish to smoke, please inform your midwife or nurse. You must have someone to care for your baby while you are out of your room. The smoking area is located in the terraces outside the original Mater Mothers’ Hospital.
