Education

At Mater Maternity we are pleased to collaborate with passionate antenatal educators 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.
