We look forward to welcoming you to Mater Maternity where we specialise in collaborative, supportive care.
Our comprehensive maternity services provide support to families during pregnancy, birth, and postnatal care. This includes antenatal classes, pre-admission midwife support, private rooms for all patients complete with a comfortable fold out bed for a partner/support person stay, room-service, post-natal classes and breastfeeding support clinic.
Mater Maternity offers state of the art maternity services and facilities for new and expecting parents. Our key services include our recently renovated Birthing Suites and Maternity Ward accommodation, room service with an all-day breakfast menu and Special Care Nursery with dedicated specialist staff.
New Birthing Suites
Our luxurious and spacious new birthing suites have been created with mothers and their families at the heart of their design to provide a relaxed and calming environment. The ensuites include adjustable double shower heads for relaxation or to massage specific areas of pain, such as the lower back. Spacious baths in three ensuites provide deep water immersion as a natural option for the management of pain during labour.
Special Care Nursery
The Special Care Nursery is for babies who need a little bit of extra care after birth. The Mater is the only private hospital in Sydney with a Level 4 SCN, and is staffed by a full time Neonatologist and neonatal intensive care trained nurses, featuring private rooms and family-centred care.
Maternity Ward Accommodation
We’re home to 34 private ensuite maternity rooms, complete with a fold-out sofa bed for your support person, who is welcome to stay overnight. All have wi-fi, a TV, a bar fridge, a wardrobe and a bedside locker. Luxury family suites, with a double bed, are also available.
We offer full room service for all meals and even have an all-day breakfast menu. Your fresh, cooked-to-order meal will be delivered in under 45 minutes from placing your request. Alternatively, you also have the option to pre-order a meal and have it delivered at a specified time.
