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 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.
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 get tremendous satisfaction watching my own children grow and adapt to the world around them.
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.
