I am an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist practicing in Rockhampton, offering Gynaecology Services and Birthing at the Mater Hospital Rockhampton. By having the rooms onsite at the Mater Hospital, allows me to be available for you during your birth and postnatal stay.
I am a Queensland medical graduate, receiving my medical degree from James Cook University in 2005. I completed my Intern and Junior House Officer years at the Rockhampton Base in 2006-2007.
My specialist training was undertaken in Queensland as part of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. During my training I worked at the Gold Coast Hospital, Royal Brisbane and Womens Hospital, Nambour Hospital and Mackay Base Hospitals. I gained experience in both general and high risk obstetrics, as well as general gynaecolgy.
I believe all women should have the right to a safe pregnancy and birth; and should be empowered by the journey of delivering and meeting your newborn. Every baby is precious and every pregnancy is different.
At varying times in our lives we need a caring compassionate specialist who has time to listen.
