Pregnancy—fees for maternity services for self-insured women

What are the costs and what do they cover?

The cost of your hospital stay, for you and your baby, is based on the estimated fees for a standard natural, or caesarean, birth. Please contact our friendly Patient Financial Liaison Officer to discuss the estimated fees for your admission, considering your individual circumstances:

  • Phone: 07 3163 8243
  • Email: mmh.privateaccounts@mater.org.au

You will be asked to pay this amount one month before your expected date of arrival to secure your booking. Any portion of the monies not used will be refunded and any monies owing are required to be paid on discharge.

Please note: accommodation charges commence from the time of admission to the Mater Mothers’ Private Brisbane.
