The Mater

Antenatal Classes

Due to the current situation with regard to COVID-19, all face-to-face Antenatal classes have been cancelled until further notice.

Mater Maternity are pleased to announce a partnership with Birth Beat to provide you with digital antenatal classes, which you can access at a time convenient to you and from the comfort of your home.

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 is led by Edwina and 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 is available for $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 on the cost of the childbirth education course (depending on your fund and level of cover). To book, email (in order to get the Mater discount, please mention that you are a Mater Sydney patient).

If you have any questions you can call our Booking Office on 02 9900 7690.
