I am an Obstetrician/Gynaecologist on the North Shore of Sydney. My philosophy is to provide women-centred care. In other words, to involve the woman (and her partner) in the decisions surrounding their care, in both Obstetrics and Gynaecology. I limit the number of patients I see in order to allow plenty of time to make a thorough assessment of a patient and also allow them as much time as they need to ask questions. Based in North Shore Private and Mater Hospital.
My aim as an obstetrician is to involve a woman and her partner in all aspects of decision making surrounding her pregnancy and birth in order to help her achieve her birth plan, whether this be a natural birth with no drugs, an elective Caesarean Section or anything in between.
