A woman accused of being an unregistered nanny has been granted bail after two twin babies in her care allegedly spent 20 hours in a coma in Queensland.

Danielle Terese Rooney, 41, was charged with not having the required 'blue card' after the twins were rushed to Brisbane's Lady Cilento Hospital when their mother was unable to wake them for a night feed earlier this month.

It's understood the couple hired Rooney through an online parenting group, wrongly believing she was registered.

Rooney briefly appeared in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Monday and was granted bail by Magistrate Jason Schubert.

Her lawyer said he needed three weeks to consider the prosecution's material and a possible plea.

Rooney did not comment outside court when asked what happened to the children or whether she had anything to say to the parents.

She is due to reappear on October 17.
