Thank you to Trish, Jasmine and Leanne for supporting our first efforts at breastfeeding, Nola for helping us through that first night post C-section, Tracy for helping us bathe Owen and pronouncing him the absolute cutest. To all the staff on Floor 11, you have been caring, supportive and understanding with our first bub. Thank you all so much.
I met Dr Travis twice, first when I came in to be induced on Dec 15 - 1 week early, which didn't work then again on December 31, to finally have my baby. Dr Travis is the gold standard in respectful, sensitive collaboration with a patient and midwifery team. I cannot speak highly enough of him. I hope he trains all of your staff!
Thanks to Leanne, who was rostered on New Year's Eve when I came in to have my daughter Elyse. I had Leanne at the start of the induction and she was absolutely awesome, her care was very woman centred and she worked so hard alongside me during the labour. Although I was induced, I felt very much like I was making the decisions, and Leanne was very practical. If you are wondering which Leanne, she's got 5 kids and hubby runs the Eaton's Hill pub.

Jo from the night shift in ward 9B from 19 - 20 May, is the best! She is not only technically sound, which all of you are! But she's been the most caring, took time in her busy schedule to sit next to me despite me being Contact 2 precaution and asked if there is anything at all she can do for me to ease my discomfort! Shows she cares! Thank you!
Thanks for all the care given to me post emergency admission during COVID lockdown in March. All levels of staff and nursing students displayed a level of professionalism you can all be proud of. As a Mater staff member and now an inpatient, I was totally out of my comfort zone and you all displayed care and compassion second to none. Awesome!
Thank you so much, we hope you have a great day! xx
Thank you for helping to change my life. Your care and kindness made recovery so much easier when I was crying in pain, unable to take more pain medication, and you all just continued to try to help. I’ll never forget how patient, thoughtful and kind you were to me.
Thank you to all of our wonderful nurses and midwives. Your compassion , professionalism and good humour are a constant inspiration.

Happy International Nurses Day to all the wonderful, caring and professional nurses at Mater Private Hospital Townsville – Surgical Ward 3.

Thank you Mary for giving me the gift of a calm and joyous birth of my second child Manoa. After a difficult first birth, this one was a dream. You were so reassuring without imposing. I’m so grateful.
I am so impressed with their professionalism.
Thank you so much to the wonderful team of midwives on level 10 that looked after me during my stay in Nov 2020. You were all so incredibly caring, kind, helpful and comforting during this time and I will never forget all your efforts!
Mater Private Hospital Rockhampton
Thank you for your support, knowledge and looking after me and my babies, Emmett and Elliot, delivered in 2018 and 2020. You deserve all the recognition. Also although not a midwife, the young woman with red hair who served supper, Sept 2020, was incredibly polite and always asked how my day was and was actually interested in my answer. Thank you.
Thank you Gai-Maree for making the birth of our first baby 2 weeks ago a wonderful experience. We will never forget you.
Mater Private Hospital Redland
Thank you to all you beautiful midwives from Mater Private Redlands!! You supported me - a single mum by choice - to help me begin motherhood with my first, and then second child! They are both now healthy strong children and you gave me the strength to help me become the mum I wanted to be for them!!
Thank you Nina for everything you do! You are an incredibly hard working person and MMH is lucky to have you as apart of their team!
Thanks for being such great support during my pregnancy, birth and postpartum!
I had 2 very different births within 11 months at mater south Brisbane under the bioc group and my midwives were amazing! Olivia and Tess delivered my two girls but also made me feel seen culturally and made me feel so very comfortable while suffering with anxiety, I want to thank them from the bottom of heart for helping me every step of the way!
Thank you for all of your support and care during both of my pregnancies, labours and beyond. You always made me feel heard and I appreciated your calm nature.
I cannot thank you enough for the support you gave me during my son’s birth in the assessment centre last October, for getting me through his delivery drug free, and for doing everything you could to get us home 4 hours later (as we wanted to). I will honestly never forget it and will be forever grateful.
An angel in every sense of the word. She advocated for me, held my hand, let me cry, let me be vulnerable, encouraged me and supported me. She played a special part the day my daughter was born, she’ll never realise to what extent! I’d have another baby just so she could be my midwife 🙊
A woman who is in the right profession. She loves, she cares, she listens, she knows, she advocates and she inspires! Anyone would be lucky to have her around!
Thank you for supporting me when Madden was in Special care and I was longing for him, your compassion, support and care has never left me 3 years on.. you never forget someone’s kindness, my time with you was one.
Thank you for being the light and comfort on our darkest days and seeing us on the board and cheering us on for our PAL journeys.Ellas the proudest sister to her angel Hendrix but now also to River nearly 4 Hali nearly 3 and FiFi nearly 1 .Your faces and well wishes are cherished.

Mater Mothers' Private Rockhampton
To all the amazing midwives who cared for my two beautiful daughters Georgia and Charlotte and myself throughout our birthing journey! You are truly etched in to my memory! Look forward to seeing you all in July for baby no.3 :-)
Thank you for being there for me every step of the way this pregnancy. You have calmed me at times, cried with me, laughed with me, organised everything for me and most importantly - you will be by my side during my c section this month, which has me a bit more relaxed. I could not have been any luckier to have you as my first long term midwife! Xx
Thank you for supporting us in maternity!
You have been there for both of my birthing journeys, for my baby with wings and my rainbow baby. Your calm, informative and no nonsense approach gave me security in both experiences. I thank you for taking such care with both of my sons, for teaching us how to breastfeed and my partner how to swaddle. You are amazing.
Thank you for your calming influence during the birth of my son Greyson. I knew I could trust you from the moment I walked through the doors. We are sorry for covering you in birth goo and Greyson peeing on you twice. Hooray for scrubs! If you are ever having a bad day, remember that we are grateful for you and all you do!
Our lovely midwives Bettina, Bernie and Anna were absolute treasures during the labour and birth of our three children. We will never forget them or the support they gave us during this amazing time as new parents! Our children Everett (3years), Kennedy (2 years) and Jed (3 months) will hear all about you too! Keep up the amazing work Ladies.
Thank you for making my pregnancy and birthing experiences for 3 of my babies so amazing. You valued my opinion and advocated for me. I won't forget all you have done. Thank you for running out and delivering baby Josie in my car! What a superstar! You are the gold standard of midwives!
Thank you for being such an amazing midwife! Any mumma would be so lucky to have you deliver their baby ❣️
To the best team of midwives - thankyou for being kind, caring and compassionate. You're all amazing.
Thankyou for being so kind and caring. We love you.
Thank you Charlotte for your exceptional care for Elijah & I during our stay. You’ll always be part of our memory from our time at Mater Mothers.
Thank you for all your effort and support to deliver my little one on April 10. I don’t know how much I am thankful to all the staff at maters mother hospital. 😍😍😍
I gave birth to a baby boy in June last year. The midwives and all the staff were incredible. Such exceptional care was given to me and my baby. The way staff adjusted to doing antenatal classes online was so professional and so much support was given. I left hospital feeling so blessed to have had such a wonderful birthing experience. Thank you
Thank you Dani for being such an amazing support with both pregnancies!
Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy night and helping properly establish breastfeeding with us, that helped us so much and 3 months later we are still going strong! Out of the many midwives that looked after us during our stay we will always remember you and the exceptional care you provided. You made such a difference!
A huge thank you to you Dani for everything during my last weeks of pregnancy at the Mater. Thanks for being so caring and accomodating and always putting my mind at ease! I couldn’t have asked to see a better midwife.
I would like to say thank you to Courtney who started me off in the birthing suite on 10th April. Although she finished her shift 2 hours before my girl was delivered at 1:08am on 11th April, her support during those first crucial hours was amazing. Thank you Courtney. I wish you all the best in the future as a mother & midwife. From
I’d like to say a BIG thank you to Belinda Pitt who was with me for the delivery of our daughter Isla Harley on 11th April at 1:08am. Her calm, reassuring & encouraging disposition made me feel so supported & confident to deliver my baby girl. I can’t thank her enough. Midwives are angels on Earth. We’ve loved both our experiences at the Mater.
Thank you to all the Mater Private staff in ICU and Ward 10 North and my surgeon Professor Andrew Barbour. Your great care, professionalism and compassion has made this difficult time for me and my family so much more bearable. We deeply appreciate all that you have done.
