Models of maternity care at Mater Mothers' Hospital

For information about Mater Mothers’ Private Brisbane click here.

When your GP confirms your pregnancy, they will send a referral to Mater Mothers Hospital’s Antenatal Clinic. We will then review and process your referral. We will also assess from your referral if you have any other medical issues. Due to demand, there may be delays to our processes. Please contact your GP if you have any concerns about your referral.

Once your referral has been approved you will receive confirmation and details of your first antenatal clinic appointment. You will also receive a text message with a link to an online antenatal history form that you need to complete before your appointment so that your midwife has all your information.  Your appointments may be in person or via Telehealth.

When you attend this first appointment, we will confirm your model of maternity care. The model of care will be affected by:

  • Any complications that occurred in a previous pregnancy
  • any medical conditions you may have
  • conditions that may arise in this pregnancy
  • whether you live in Mater Maternity Care Catchment

Please continue to see your GP while waiting for your first appointment at Mater Mothers.
