Becoming a mum is an extraordinary, life changing experience. Sometimes challenging. Always beautiful. Every story is unique and deserves to be told.
Through #materbeautifulmoments, Mater Mothers Hospitals’ will celebrate the journey of pregnancy and early parenthood through sharing the honest and heartfelt stories from the Mater community.
Make us smile with your heartfelt story. Make us cry with tales of your little miracle. We’d love to share in the real and raw moments; the firsts and milestones; and anything that makes you smile, laugh or even brings tears to your eyes!
So Mater Mums and Dads, let’s hear your story! Post a photo or share a short video that shows a special and beautiful moment in your baby's journey. Share your beautiful moments with us via Facebook or Instagram and tag your photos or videos with #materbeautifulmoments
We look forward to seeing your #materbeautifulmoments!
