Supporting mothers and babies care and research at Mater

Your generous monthly gift will enable Mater's researchers to take the next great leap forward in the care of mothers and babies.

A caring commitment

All every new parent wants is the very best for their new baby. But sadly, not all pregnancies go to plan, which is why Mater Mothers’ Hospitals are equipped to care for any mother and baby needing emergency support during pregnancy.

Eight per cent* of Australian babies are born prematurely and many others will experience serious complications while they are still in the womb. Parents of these tiny, vulnerable babies face days, weeks and sometimes months of worry and uncertainty.

But thanks only to the generous support of people like you, Mater is able to provide the very best in specialist care for premature and seriously ill babies.

By making a monthly gift to support Mater’s work, you’ll be helping Mater continue to lead the way in mothers and babies research, ensuring our tiniest and most vulnerable Queenslanders have the best possible start to life.
