Mater Mothers’ Private Brisbane now provides extra special options for mums birthing at Mater including a luxury stay at Emporium Hotel South Bank.
Mater Moments at Emporium Hotel South Bank includes two luxurious night’s accommodation at Emporium Hotel South Bank, luxury transfer from hospital to hotel (including baby capsule), three meals per day for mum, and a midwife/nurse on-site 24/7.
Privately insured mums who are seeking an alternative option to staying in hospital are able to access ‘The Caring Continues’ packages as long as they are well enough to be discharged by their obstetrician and paediatrician.
Daily visits by a Mater Mothers’ midwife whilst at the Emporium will ensure the arrival of the newest family member is as safe, stress-free and memorable as possible.
Medical Director, Mothers Babies and Women’s Health Dr Mike Beckmann said the packages were about offering 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.
“A stay at the Emporium is a premium option for our private patients and just one of a number of options available for those birthing privately at Mater,” Dr Beckmann said.
“New parents have an opportunity to spend precious time with their baby in an elegant, stylish river view room with balcony, with the added comfort of knowing Mater is on hand should the need for additional support arise” he said.
General Manager Emporium Hotel South Bank Charles Martin said that he was thrilled to partner with Mater Mothers' Private Brisbane for the Mater Moments by Emporium Hotel South Bank program.
“We look forward to welcoming mothers and their babies for a luxury stay in the transition between leaving the Mater and going home,” Mr Martin said.
“The team at Emporium Hotel South Bank will 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”.
One of three packages can be chosen by mum post birth to best suit their needs and include Health and Wellbeing at Home, Helping Hand at Home and Mater Moments at Emporium Hotel South Bank.
Helping Hand at Home includes a $200 Youfoodz voucher and two hour domestic clean.
Health and Wellbeing at Home includes two one-hour long visits at home with a midwife to assess health and wellbeing of baby, as well as providing education on settling, breastfeeding and first aid for baby.
Further information and eligibility for each package is available on the Mater Mothers' website.
