As a mother of two young children, I understand pregnancy from a woman’s perspective and have experienced the physical and emotional changes that can occur. In working with my patients, my aim is to provide personalised care, considering the individual needs of each patient.
My interest in obstetrics and gynaecology developed early during my medical studies. I obtained my Diploma (DRANZCOG) in 2008 and my Fellowship (FRANZCOG) in February 2018. I have been fortunate enough to train at a number of top Queensland hospitals – including QEII, Mater Mothers’, Logan, Rockhampton and Redland Hospitals – as well as completing six months of training in the Maternal Fetal Medicine unit at the Mater Mothers’ Hospital, where I expanded my interest into high-risk obstetrics.
Obstetrics and gynaecology is an interesting and challenging field, as new and innovative ideas and techniques are constantly emerging. To stay current with best practice recommendations, I am actively involved in research and education. I am currently the Course Coordinator for the University of Queensland, School of Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynaecology Medical students.
My passion for my work has turned me into an advocate for women’s health in general. I enjoy participating in awareness and fundraising events promoting women’s health and in assisting with the training and mentoring of young doctors and students.
I consider it a great privilege to be invited to support women on their journeys to motherhood and, during my downtime, I find tremendous satisfaction in watching my own children grow and adapt to the world around them.
To support women beyond the routine 6-week postpartum cares, I established the Greenslopes’ Parents Group in December 2018 so that parents can meet for informal chats, share stories and form new friendships. I often organise guest speakers to come talk about all things parenting and baby related. Our guest speakers have included: a pregnancy and postpartum massage therapist, a dentist, a physiotherapist, a dietitian, a librarian who does Rhyme Time and a baby photographer who did an amazing photo shoot for us.
I am an obstetrician and gynaecologist practising as part of Greenslopes Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Greenslopes Private Hospital. We are specialists who have come together with the common goal of providing quality care in a friendly and professional environment.
The practice rooms are located alongside the premium maternity facility at Greenslopes Private Hospital, allowing access to one of Brisbane's leading private hospitals with its modern facilities.
I am also an accredited Visiting Medical Officer at the Mater Mothers' Private Hospital so I can offer continuity of care if preterm difficulties arise.
The maternity ward at Greenslopes Private Hospital offers state-of-the-art, beautifully appointed, modern amenities. All newly built private rooms are equipped with the finest facilities, and half of the rooms have double beds allowing families to be together from the beginning.
There is also a well-baby nursery to cater for the individual needs of both the mother and baby, as well as our special care nursery for babies who need extra support.

In determining my fee structure, my aim has been to make access to quality private obstetric and gynaecology care affordable.
For privately insured patients, the following fee structure applies:
Initial Obstetric Appointment (MBS Item 16401): $180.00 ($75 Medicare rebate)
Routine Antenatal Appointments (MBS Item 16500): $62.50 ($41.35 Medicare rebate)
Ultrasound Examinations: Any in-room ultrasounds performed as part of an antenatal consultation will incur no out-of-pocket charge.
Pathology Testing: Where possible, all pathology tests will be bulk-billed.
Pregnancy Management Fee (MBS Item 16590): $1500.
Private obstetricians charge a Pregnancy Management Fee (PMF) in order to cover the costs of being on call (or arranging suitable obstetric cover) for the duration of the pregnancy. This fee is invoiced at 28 weeks of pregnancy and payable by 32 weeks.
For uninsured patients or patients covered by overseas health funds, out of pocket expenses will depend on individual circumstances and will be discussed in detail as part of the consultation process.
Initial Consultation (MBS Item 104): $245.00 ($76.15 Medicare rebate)
Subsequent Consultation (MBS Item 105): $120.00 ($38.25 Medicare rebate)
Gynaecological Procedures in rooms: Fees will apply depending on the procedure (rebate applies).
For privately insured patients, the following fee structure applies for in hospital surgical procedures:
I have elected to adopt a "Known Gap" arrangement for surgery meaning there will be fixed out of pocket expenses for any surgical procedure performed in hospital as either a day case or overnight admission. The actual out of pocket will vary depending on the procedure and the Private Health Fund.
PLEASE NOTE: For gynaecological surgery, there will also be out-of-pocket expenses related to health fund excesses for hospital admission, anaesthetic expenses and (for some health funds) pathology.
For uninsured patients or patients covered by overseas health funds, out-of-pocket expenses will depend on individual circumstances and will be discussed in detail as part of the consultation process.
