Coming to hospital

During your stay with us, our midwives and nurses will provide education and information to enable you to confidently care for yourself and your baby in preparation for going home. 

Where to go for admission

Admission during the day

For admission to Mater Mothers’ Hospital during the day, please present to the main entrance of the hospital off Raymond Terrace. You will need to go through the security boom gate before you get to the hospital. For your convenience there is a set-down/pick-up area at the front of the building. Your support person can park the car here for a period of five minutes.

If you can walk, please go to the main reception on level 5 where you will be directed to the Pregnancy Assessment Centre. If you are in strong labour and too uncomfortable to move from the car or you need immediate assistance, please remain in the car and ask your support person to request urgent assistance at the hospital's main reception, located on level 5.

After hours admissions

After hours (between 8.30 pm and 6 am) the security boom gates are unattended but there is a video intercom to enable you to contact security, who will remotely operate the boom gate.

The front doors to the hospital will be electronically locked between 8.30 pm and 6 am. Please contact reception using the video intercom at the front door to gain entry into the hospital.
