Antenatal and Postnatal Health Services for women

Mater Health and Wellness provide exceptional specialised private allied health care before, during and after pregnancy.

While pregnancy, birth and early motherhood are special moments in a woman’s life, it also has a significant physical impact on a woman’s body and her emotional wellbeing.

Based at Mater’s South Brisbane campus, our team of dedicated allied health specialists provide expert support to pregnant women and new mothers to help them manage their health and wellbeing through diet and nutrition, exercise, physiotherapy as well as offering counselling services to help new parents adjust to caring for a new born.
