Mater Mothers' on show

The 2019 Essential Baby and Toddler Show was a great opportunity to chat with families in our community and provide expert advice to new and expecting parents.

More than 3000 people visited us at the show across our multiple stands: Mater Mothers’ Private BrisbaneMater Mothers’ First Aid for Babies courses (proudly provided by Mater Education), and sampled our Mater Baby Products at the Nappy Change Room. The team from Mater Education also gave live demonstrations on the main stage of babies’ CPR, in front of a very engaged crowd.

Our team of experienced health care professionals were there to discuss the wonder of pregnancy and answer questions from visitors about parenthood, birth and newborn care. Obstetricians and Midwives from Mater loved the opportunity to meet with new and expecting parents. Thank you to our team of specialists from Mater who made this years’ Essential Baby and Toddler Show our biggest yet.

Our range of hospital-developed maternity and baby care products were a big hit at the show too. Our Midwives and Mums at Mater Mothers’ Hospitals have developed a range of high quality and trusted maternity and baby care products for the health and wellbeing of you and your family. Our range of skin care and nappies are suitable for even the most delicate newborn skin. We had nappy samples available at the Nappy Change Room, and testers on stand of our beautiful skin care range. Mum’s loved the baby wash so much that we completely sold out on the weekend

If you were unable to join us at the Essential Baby and Toddler Show, Mater Baby Products are available to purchase online at for delivery nationally, or you can pick them up during your weekly shop at 20+ Woolworths Supermarkets in South East Queensland and selected pharmacies.
