Mater Mothers half way to delivering 10 000 babies this year

Mater Mothers is on track to reach 10 000 births this year, welcoming its 5000th baby for 2014, little Naomi Rodgers, late last week.

Naomi was born at 7:59 pm on Thursday 26 June and is the first child of Jacqueline and Matt Rodgers.

Mater Mothers' Director of Women’s Health Services, Maree Reynolds, said that approximately 1 in 7 babies born in Queensland are born at Mater Mothers’ Hospitals, making it Australia’s largest maternity service.

“Mater Mothers is renowned for providing high quality maternity services for women and their families across Queensland and, as a hospital that sees more than 10 000 babies born every year, we are privileged to share many precious first moments with new families,” she said.

“We are thrilled to welcome little Naomi into the Mater Mothers' community we have been building for more than 50 years.”

2014 has proven to be a busy year for childbirth at Mater Mothers. The busiest day of the year so far has been Tuesday 25 March with 46 new babies born, while the busiest month of the year so far has been April with 885 new babies born.
