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

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!

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.

Mater Mothers' Hospital

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 🙊

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

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 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 The Siqueiras

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.
