Mornington Peninsula Obstetrics is a private Obstetrics and Gynaecology clinic offering care to women of Bayside Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula. We provide high quality and personalised care for a broad range of women’s health issues that allow us to offer continuity of care across all stages of a woman’s reproductive life.
I graduated from Monash University with Honours in 2004 and commenced my training as a specialist Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at Monash Medical Centre after working for two years at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. During my training I gained experience in the management of routine and complicated pregnancies and had the opportunity to develop a broad range of obstetric & gynaecological skills. I have also completed research into teenage pregnancy outcomes, thyroid disease in pregnancy and have published internationally and presented my work at conferences across Australia. Most recently I completed my fellowship with a dual role as a Senior Registrar in both high risk obstetrics at Monash Medical Centre and general gynaecology in West Gippsland. I am involved in mentoring medical students and am an examiner for Monash University Medical School. I am also a training supervisor at Monash Health, overseeing the training of future Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. In order to keep my skills and knowledge up to date I attend meetings and specialist conferences throughout the year.
I am delighted to be able to offer private care to the women of the Mornington Peninsula and surrounds. I believe that continuity of care is paramount to developing a strong relationship with her patients and that this leads to achieving the best possible outcomes. I am committed to being available to my patients where possible and to manage their care with a personalised approach. I limit the number of pregnancy bookings available each month in order to achieve this and live locally to the hospital. When I am not available I ensure the availability of a trusted colleague 24 hours a day.
My husband and I have lived on the Mornington Peninsula for several years and are based in Mornington with our 3 young children. Beyond medicine, I enjoy the lifestyle, the beaches and food and wine regions of the Peninsula, running and fitness, and spending time with my family.
I have been a lifelong resident of the Mornington Peninsula, attending Toorak College. After graduating with honours from Monash University in 2006 I commenced my postgraduate training at Monash Medical Centre. I worked in emergency medicine, intensive care and paediatrics before commencing specialist training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in 2009. I have trained in high risk and normal pregnancy, infertility, endometriosis, prolapse and advanced laparoscopic surgery including laparoscopic hysterectomy. I have been fortunate to have varied experience in rural and remote Australia as well as high risk tertiary hospitals. I have been involved in mentoring of trainees and medical students and am an examiner for Monash University. I have recently been appointed a part time specialist at Peninsula Health.
I am a strong believer in normal birth and offer VBAC and vaginal twin delivery where suitable. I develop an individualised treatment plan for all my obstetric and gynaecology patients taking into account your treatment goals and preferences. I endeavour to practice evidence based medicine according to the most up to date research and guidelines.
I live locally on the Mornington Peninsula with my husband, Lukas, a builder and our two young sons. In our spare time we enjoy spending time with our friends and all that the Mornington Peninsula has to offer.
