Where your money goes

The impact your support can make

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.

Did you know …

  • More than 10 000 babies are born at Mater Mothers’ Hospitals each year, all affectionately known as ‘Mater little miracles’
  • More than 2000 seriously ill and premature babies are given around the clock care in Mater’s Neonatal Critical Care Unit (NCCU) each year
  • 18 days, 12 hours is the average time a premature baby spends in our NCCU before being able to go home
  • Mater employs 250 medical researchers who spend their days striving to find new treatments to help mothers and their babies. It will often become their life’s work
  • Mater's Maternal Fetal Medicine team pioneered life-saving in-utero surgery, which is performed on average 26 times per year, every two weeks

All of this simply wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of people like you.

Luckily for these parents, with your support Mater is leading the way in maternity care for women and families across Queensland and beyond.

By supporting Mater Little Miracles you can help ensure Mater provides the very best in care and that its researchers are working around the clock to find new and improved treatments for vulnerable babies and their mothers.

Your generous support will help give all Mater little miracles the best possible start to life.
