Mater Mothers’ Private Brisbane has launched a Mater Moments offering for private mums birthing at Mater who are now able to enjoy a stay at Emporium Hotel South Bank following the arrival of their baby.

More than 200 families have already taken up Mater Moments at Emporium Hotel South Bank which includes two luxurious nights accommodation at Emporium Hotel South Bank after leaving hospital, luxury transfer from hospital to hotel (including baby capsule), three specially designed room service meals per day for mum, and a Mater midwife on-site 24/7.

Privately insured mums who are well enough to be discharged on day two (three for a caesarean birth) can relax and bond with their newborn in luxurious surroundings with the comfort of knowing a Mater midwife is available to help for things like breastfeeding, sleeping and settling.

Medical Director, Mothers Babies and Women’s Health Dr Mike Beckmann said the offering, part of its Caring Continues package, is about providing privately insured patients more options. “Mater has bucked the national trend and has seen a significant growth in its private birth numbers over the past two years,” Dr Beckmann said. “Over this time we’ve seen mums seeking different options to transition home with their new baby.”

Emporium Hotel South Bank says it has been thrilled to partner with Mater Mothers Private Brisbane for the Mater Moments at Emporium Hotel South Bank offering. “We have enjoyed welcoming new mothers and their babies for a luxury stay in the transition between hospital and home,” a spokesman said. “The team at Emporium Hotel South Bank ensure that this special time is filled with some great opportunities to relax and enjoy the amenities while partners can also enjoy all that the hotel offers”.
