The Mater

Pre-admission Midwife Appointment

The 45 minute appointment gives you the opportunity to become familiar with the Mater and the midwives who will be providing your care during and after the birth of your baby. You can also discuss any expectations you may have for the pregnancy, birth and early parenting.

We recommend you book this appointment for when you are around 30 weeks. Book in as soon as possible.

The journey to parenthood is a time of change. This appointment provides an opportunity for you to discuss your thoughts and feelings about that change with a specially trained midwife. It also allows us the opportunity to have an extended chat with you, to gauge your emotional well-being and to take you through your support options, should you need them.

We are proud to be working in partnership with The Gidget Foundation, a not for profit organisation, supporting the emotional wellbeing of new parents and their families, while providing education for health professionals and the community.

Our antenatal midwives have appointments available on weekdays and Saturdays.
