The Mater

Coming To Hospital

If at any time during your pregnancy you have concerns, please feel free to contact the Birthing Suite if your doctor is unavailable. The Mater has 24 hour-a-day contact with your Obstetrician.

Are you in labour?

When you think you are in labour, if your membranes have ruptured or if you have any bleeding, please telephone the Birthing Suite on (02) 9900 7681 or (02) 9900 7682.

If your doctor tells you to come to the hospital, please remember to telephone the Birthing Suite before leaving home.

After Hours Access

For security reasons, from 10.00pm to 6.00am you will find the hospital main entrance doors locked, so please use the Maternity buzzer at the front entrance and you will be admitted immediately.

Support People

Please discuss with your doctor and midwife if you wish to have support people or children in the Birthing Suite. They will need to be informed of your arrangements and be prepared to attend to your needs during delivery. Please note, during the COVID-19 Pandemic only partners and one other support person is permitted in the Birthing Suite.
