The Mater

Education

The Mater Maternity team of obstetricians, midwives and nurses are committed to giving you and your baby the best possible care. Part of this care involves educating you and your partner about the various stages of pregnancy, birth and parenting which can sometimes be confusing and exhausting.

Providing information and support throughout the entire pregnancy is vital for you and your family and the Mater takes great pride in being there every step of the way.

Our aim is that by attending antenatal and postnatal classes you will feel confident and informed about pregnancy, birth and parenting.
