I am an Obstetrician, Gynaecologist and accredited Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist (expert in high-risk obstetrics). I deliver babies at North Shore Private Hospital and The Mater.

My practice is modern and evidence-based, with an emphasis on great communication and working together to achieve the best for you and your baby. I am very supportive of natural childbirth but also highly experienced in caesarean section.

I have higher qualifications and extensive experience in high-risk obstetrics and female pelvic floor disorders, having completed major fellowships in both these areas. As one of the very few accredited Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialists in NSW, I am a genuine high-risk obstetrician. Before moving to Australia I worked in Dublin, New York and Cambridge, at three of the busiest and most renowned maternity hospitals in the world. My advanced training and international experience allows me to provide you with expert care, whether your pregnancy is entirely low-risk or extremely complex.

I understand that you will have unique wishes and concerns for your pregnancy. My practice is a friendly, welcoming environment where I encourage you to ask questions and to feel comfortable discussing every aspect of your care. I am a firm believer in informed patient choice and will work with you to create an enjoyable, involved pregnancy and birth experience for you and your partner.

In addition to my clinical experience, I am very active in teaching and research. I have published more than 90 scientific papers, written chapters for major medical textbooks, acted as a reviewer for international medical journals and written a guest editorial for the British Medical Journal. I hold a PhD from the University of New South Wales, for which I was awarded a prestigious international scholarship. I regularly teach medical students and junior doctors and have been invited to give lectures to GPs, midwives and other obstetricians, both in Australia and internationally.
