Having your baby at Mater Mothers' Private Brisbane

Welcome and congratulations

We understand that preparing for the birth of your baby can make you feel excited, anxious, overjoyed—in fact a whole range of emotions. That’s why we have prepared the following information to answer some of your questions and to help you feel comfortable about coming to hospital for your baby’s birth.

If you have any questions, please call us on 07 3163 1919.

Before you arrive

One of the many benefits of coming to Mater Mothers’ Private Brisbane is that you can choose your own private obstetrician to manage your private maternity care.

Understanding your costs

Your obstetrician will discuss their costs with you. Please note that your obstetrician’s costs do not include some aspects of the care provided to you and your newborn baby. Some of these costs may be covered by your private health fund. It is important that you contact your health fund to determine which benefits you are entitled to and which expenses you will need to cover out of pocket.

These extra costs might include some of the following:

  • Antenatal procedures, such as ultrasounds
  • Pathology, such as blood or urine tests
  • Pharmacy items
  • Antenatal education classes
  • Partner meals
  • Your baby’s paediatrician—Your obstetrician will refer you to their chosen paediatrician. You can ask for the paediatrician’s details before your hospital admission and then make contact in advance for an estimate of their fees. Paediatric fees cannot be charged to your health fund unless your baby is admitted to the Neonatal Critical Care Unit. The rebate for newborn services comes from Medicare. We recommend that you register your baby with Medicare as soon as possible after birth so you can claim back the rebate.
  • You may require an anaesthetist for some procedures, such as insertion of an epidural or care during a caesarean section. Your obstetrician will recommend an anaesthetist if you need one. You can ask for the anaesthetist’s details before your hospital admission and then make contact in advance for an estimate of their fees.

Coming to hospital

Where to go for admission

Mater Mothers’ Private Brisbane’s main entrance is located on Level 5. Proceed through the security boom gate on Raymond Terrace to access the hospital. Your partner or support person may park in the designated set down/pick up area at the front of the building for a period of five minutes. 

Please go to main reception, where you will be directed to the Pregnancy Assessment Centre located on Level 5. 

If you are in strong labour and unable to move from the car, please remain in the car and ask your partner or support person to go to main reception and request assistance. 

If you have a booked admission for an elective caesarean section or induction of labour, please present to main reception on Level 5 on the day and time that you have been advised. You will be formally admitted to hospital and escorted to your private room on the postnatal ward.

After hours admissions

The security boom gates are unattended between 8.30 pm and 6 am but there is an intercom to enable you to contact security, who will remotely operate the boom gate. The front doors of the hospital are also locked between 8.30 pm and 6 am. An intercom at the front door can be used to contact main reception which is staffed 24 hours a day.

Postnatal ward

Your baby will be with you in your room at all times and visitors are very welcome. Partners or a support person can visit anytime and are welcome to stay overnight on the daybed provided. Other family and friends are welcome between 10 am to 1 pm and 3 pm to 8 pm. We encourage this rest period between 1 pm and 3 pm each day to ensure that you and your baby receive enough rest. 

Please advise your friends and family to visit before or after this period if possible. Please ask family or friends who are unwell to delay visiting your baby until they are well.

If your visitors are feeling unwell, it’s best for them to stay away to protect our little patients’ immune systems.

Antenatal education

Mater Mothers’ Private Brisbane offers a range of education programs that are facilitated by midwives, physiotherapists and dietitians who are skilled in childbirth education and women’s health. As our classes are very popular it is important to book as early as possible to avoid any disappointment. For further information visit matermothers.org.au or contact our Bookings Officer on 07 3163 8847.

Our maternity facilities

Birth suite

Mater’s spacious and comfortable birthing rooms provide a safe atmosphere for the birth of your baby. Each birthing room is self-contained, with the majority of medical equipment discreetly concealed. Baths and showers are available in most birthing rooms for warm water immersion during labour.

Your midwife will work in partnership with you to help achieve your wishes for labour and birth. Your midwife also works closely with your obstetrician and paediatrician to ensure that you and your baby receive exceptional care.

Your support person is welcome in the birthing room during labour and the birth of your baby. If a child is to attend the birth, please prepare them for this special occasion and arrange for someone other than your support person to look after them. A virtual tour of our birthing rooms are available at matermothers.org.au 

Cameras may be used in birth suite and in theatre at the discretion of the medical and midwifery staff involved in the birth of your baby. Please respect the privacy of staff by asking permission to photograph them.

Your baby’s birth

Supporting breastfeeding with skin-to-skin contact

Ask to have skin-to-skin contact with your baby as soon as possible after birth. This helps them to stabilise their temperature and initiate an instinctive feeding response that will enhance bonding and breastfeeding establishment. These instincts are heightened during the first two hours after birth. Skin-to-skin contact with your baby after a caesarean birth is encouraged as soon as possible. A midwife will assist you with this.

Baby identification

Your baby will have two identification bands, one placed around each ankle immediately following birth. These bands must remain on your baby while you are both in  our care. It is important you advise your midwife if either of the bands are too loose or have fallen off during your stay, so that they can be replaced. 

Mater Centre for Maternal Fetal Medicine 

If either you or your baby have existing, or potential, high risk medical concerns, your obstetrician may refer you to Mater’s Centre for Maternal Fetal Medicine.

The centre conducts antenatal ultrasound screening, Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT), and diagnostic tests including Amniocentesis and Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS), upon referral from your obstetrician. If you would like to know more about these tests, please speak to your obstetrician. Please note, a fee is charged for ultrasound examinations and investigations.

Certain conditions can be diagnosed and appropriate treatment can be offered which may improve the outcome for your baby. Counselling is always provided for high-risk women.

Reasons for concern during pregnancy

Your body has a great deal to do during pregnancy. Sometimes the changes taking place will cause irritation or discomfort, and on occasions they may seem quite alarming. There is rarely any need for concern, but you should mention anything that is worrying you to your obstetrician or midwife.

If you experience or notice any of the following symptoms from 20 weeks of pregnancy, it is important to contact the hospital by calling 07 3163 7000 or call your obstetrician immediately:

  • your baby’s pattern, strength, or amount of movement is less than usual
  • vaginal bleeding
  • your waters break
  • period like pain in your lower tummy that comes and goes regularly
  • any change in colour or odour of vaginal discharge
  • abdominal cramps with or without diarrhoea
  • lower backache
  • dizziness or blurred vision, particularly if accompanied by headaches.

Pregnancy Assessment Centre (PAC)

Our Pregnancy Assessment Centre provides assessment and care for women from very early pregnancy until six weeks after the birth of your baby. It is collocated with the birth suite on Level 5, Mater Mothers’ Private Brisbane.

For pregnancy related concerns, including bleeding or pain, please present to the Pregnancy Assessment Centre or call 07 3163 7000.

Please note, we are unable to provide clinical assessment over the phone and you may be asked to come in to PAC or the midwife may contact your obstetrician on your behalf.

For other non-pregnancy related health concerns, please contact your GP or hospital emergency department.

In an emergency situation you should always call 000 for an ambulance.

Having a caesarean

If you have a caesarean birth with a spinal or epidural anaesthetic, we welcome one support person into the operating suite with you.

If you require a general anaesthetic, you will be asleep during the operation. While your support person can come with you to the operating theatre initially, they will be asked to wait outside in the waiting area during the procedure. Your support person will be in the recovery room when you arrive there shortly after the operation.

Your private postnatal room

Each private room at Mater Mothers’ Private Brisbane includes an ensuite bathroom, baby bathing facilities, phone, television and fridge. Our Parents Lounge also includes tea and coffee making facilities.

Your partner or support person is welcome to stay overnight on the daybed provided in your room. In consideration of others, we ask that everyone is appropriately dressed at all times. Children are not permitted to stay overnight with you.

A virtual tour of our private postnatal rooms are available at matermothers.org.au

Paediatric assessment

In the majority of births, a paediatrician is not required to attend. Your obstetrician may request that the paediatrician be present when your baby is born if there are any concerns about the baby being unwell or if the birth is more complex.

During your stay in hospital, the paediatrician will perform a complete medical assessment to confirm your baby is well and has not been born with any abnormalities or health issues. At least two or three checks are needed:

  • soon after birth
  • prior to discharge
  • more depending on the progress of your baby.

A further check is also recommended at six weeks of age to confirm that your baby is growing and developing normally.

Medications for your baby

Hepatitis B vaccinations and Vitamin K are recommended for all babies soon after birth in the birth suites. For further information, please speak to your midwife or paediatrician. You will be asked to provide your consent prior to these being given to your baby.

Postnatal care

The midwives and nurses caring for you will explain what to expect in the first few days. You will be provided with education and support as you learn to care for your baby and prepare to go home.

Rooming-in

Rooming-in allows you and your baby to remain together 24 hours a day. This enables you to gain confidence and to bond with your baby. Rooming-in is also optimal for breastfeeding success as you are able to respond to your baby as soon as hunger cues are displayed. Additionally, current research indicates that mothers and babies who room-in together actually sleep more effectively.

Baby care assistants

Baby care assistants are available between 10.30 pm and 5 am most nights to assist you with settling techniques. These staff have undergone specific training in baby settling and breastfeeding support. Please speak with your midwife if you are interested in receiving this support.

Breastfeeding

Mater Mothers’ Private Brisbane endorses the World Health Organisation’s recommendation that breastfeeding is the best source of nourishment for newborn infants.

Breast milk and breastfeeding have great benefits for mums and babies. Breast milk is specifically designed for your baby and changes to meet their nutritional requirements. It provides readily available, easily digested food and also has unique antibodies and growth factors to help protect and support your baby. Breastfeeding has also been shown to be beneficial to mums too–helping to bond with your baby, lessen the effects of chronic illnesses, and facilitates the return to your pre-pregnancy body weight and body shape (when breastfeeding for longer than seven months).

We believe that almost every woman, when given accurate information and encouragement, can successfully breastfeed. The experienced midwives in birth suites and on the postnatal ward caring for you and your baby are able to provide you with breastfeeding information, assistance and support when learning to breastfeed.

Breastfeeding support

Breastfeeding support is provided by Mater Mothers’ Parenting Support Centre; a specialist service available to you during pregnancy, your hospital stay, and as a support centre after your return home. The service is staffed by experienced lactation consultants and services include:

During pregnancy

  • individual appointments with a lactation consultant to discuss previous breastfeeding challenges can be arranged, if required.

After the birth of your baby while you’re in hospital

  • breastfeeding clinics
  • private consultations are available for complex breastfeeding problems
  • if your baby is in Mater’s Neonatal Critical Care Unit (NCCU) a lactation consultant is available to visit you and your baby in the nursery
  • you will be supplied with any expressing equipment required during your stay.

After discharge

  • individual appointments are available. This is a no fee service to all Mater mothers with babies up to six months of age, who have Medicare.

Formula feeding

If you choose to use formula for infant feeding, and have a specific formula that you wish to be supplied with during your stay in hospital, Mater Mothers’ Private Brisbane can arrange for pharmacy supplied formulas to be ready for use for when your baby is born. Feeding equipment will also be supplied if needed (i.e. bottles, teats, syringes) during your stay. Our midwife will discuss this with you during your pre-admission interview. Unfortunately, Mater cannot supply non-pharmacy formulas.

If your baby is prescribed a specific formula for a medical reason this will be prepared and supplied by Mater’s Milk Room. 

You will also be provided with education about how to safely prepare formula and feed your baby.

Safe sleeping for your baby 

No sleeping environment is risk free. However, research indicates that following these safe sleeping recommendations will reduce the risk of sudden unexpected death in infancy:

  • sleep baby on their back from birth, not on tummy or side
  • sleep baby with head and face uncovered
  • keep baby and their environment smoke free before and after birth
  • sleep baby in their own safe sleeping place in the same room as an adult care-giver for the first six to twelve months
  • feed your baby to comfort them
  • provide a safe sleeping environment, night and day. This includes:
    • a cot that meets Australian standards
    • a firm, clean, flat mattress that fits snugly into the cot
    • bedding which cannot cover your baby’s face (i.e. tuck blankets in firmly or use a safe baby sleeping bag)
    • removing all doonas, pillows, bumpers, lamb’s wool (sheepskins) and soft toys from the cot.

Sharing a sleep surface with your baby 

Many parents share the same sleep surface with their baby to feed, settle or sleep. Sharing sleep surfaces with a baby increases the risk of sudden infant death and fatal sleep accidents in some circumstances.

For further comprehensive information about sleeping your baby safely—and the benefits and risks of shared sleeping—please refer to the information statements on the Red Nose website (formally SIDS and Kids).

For babies who need additional care

Neonatal Critical Care Unit

If your baby is born prematurely, is sick, or requires close observations, they will be admitted to Mater Mothers’ Neonatal Critical Care Unit (NCCU). Our NCCU provides multidisciplinary care, including around the clock specialised medical and nursing care. Any investigations or treatment required will be explained to you, and you will be encouraged to participate in your baby’s care, wherever possible, to establish and strengthen your bond with them.

Your baby’s intensive care may involve private medical and allied health specialists. If so, their services will be billed to you. We recommend that during your pregnancy you speak to your private health insurance provider about your entitlements for neonatal specialist care.

Neonatal Intensive Care or Special Care Nursery 

If your baby is premature or unwell and is admitted to one of our specialist nurseries, there are different visiting guidelines:

  • Parents and siblings are welcome to visit their baby anytime
  • Other visitors must attend with a parent
  • There are only two visitors allowed at a time
  • If you, and especially any other visitor, are unwell with a potentially infectious illness, we would recommend not visiting.
