About Mater Little Miracles

    Mater Little Miracles was born out of a desire to provide the best possible start to life for premature and seriously ill babies cared for at Mater—that’s more than 2000 new Queenslanders born every year.

    Mater Mothers’ Hospitals welcome a new baby into the world for every 32 births in Australia—that’s one in every seven Queenslanders born who can say they’re a ‘Mater baby.’

    These babies are often born too early, very sick, or too small to go home with their parents just yet. They can be born as young as 24 weeks, weigh as little as 400 grams, and come from all over Queensland.

    Without your generous support, these tiny patients cared for at Mater's Neonatal Critical Care Unit each year would not receive Mater's specialised care.
