Education

Education

At Mater Maternity we believe that professional and personalised education is essential in preparation for labour, birth and early parenting.

We are pleased to collaborate with a number of external providers for antenatal education to help you and your partner prepare for the arrival of your baby and the transition into early parenthood. 

Each provider has their own guidelines on when best to complete the classes (generally between 26 and 34 weeks) as well as information on health fund rebates. We recommend booking in for these classes early as spots may be limited. 

Mater Maternity also provides a wide array of postnatal education in the Hospital during your stay to help you prepare for life with your newborn once you return home.
