Supporting our Mater Little Miracles

At Mater, every baby born and cared for is affectionately known as a ‘Mater little miracle’.

That’s more than 10 000 Mater little miracles born into the world every year!

The birth of a newborn is one of the happiest and most beautiful moments in life for mothers and their families, and while most pregnancies are without complications, some babies are born premature, are seriously ill, or are simply too small to go straight home with their parents. For these families, they turn to Mater—an Australian leader in neonatal critical care.

Every year more than 2000 seriously ill and premature babies come to our hospitals from all over Queensland to receive around the clock specialist care from the team in Mater's Neonatal Critical Care Unit.

And that’s why Mater’s researchers are working around the clock to change the future for these women and their babies; working on world-leading research that could give seriously ill and premature babies a better life.

But these tiny babies and Mater's researchers need your help too. 

Whether your baby needed some extra care and support when they were born, or you've had a healthy baby born at Mater, your support of Mater Little Miracles will help invest in life-saving research, care and equipment to make sure that all babies can grow up to be happy and healthy children.

If you want to find out more about how you and your family can get involved with Mater Little Miracles and help ensure that all Mater little miracles have the best possible start to life, please call 07 3163 8000 or email [email protected].
