Birth beat


Birth Beat online classes

Our online course provides practical, evidence-based information to help you prepare for labour, birth and early parenthood.

Online Antenatal Education

Birth Beat is an alternative to our face-to-face classes with content created specifically for maternity patients at the Mater Hospital.

Birth Beat was developed by registered nurse and midwife Edwina Sharrock who has over 14 years of experience as a midwife and neonatal intensive care nurse. The digital course provides practical, evidence-based information to help you prepare for labour, birth and early parenthood. Your access to the Birth Beat Antenatal Program provides you with video content that’s available for 12 months.

The full course cost is $347 for Mater patients (the course normally retails for $397). If you have private health care, your fund may provide a full or partial rebate (depending on your fund and level of cover).

SPECIAL LIMITED TIME OFFER: Birth Beat classes are now being offered at a $100 discount for a total cost of $297 for all Mater Hospital patients until the 15th of August, 2022.  Use the code MATER100 when checking out.
