I am a fellow of both the Australian and British Royal Colleges of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists with 20 years of experience as a qualified specialist in obstetrics, IVF and gynaecology. Apart from providing expert care, I do my best to be both a good listener and a good communicator.

I have delivered over five thousand babies since commencing private practice in Sydney. This includes naturally conceived babies and those conceived with the help of fertility treatments such as IVF and minimally invasive procedures. In both cases, I enjoy taking couples through the birth experience and consider it a great privilege to be involved in such a wonderful event. Continuity of care is important and I do not engage in rotating weekend cover.

Dealing with infertility requires an experienced, supportive, compassionate doctor for guidance. IVF (and PGD) take place at Genea (formerly Sydney IVF). I have been a consultant with Genea for two decades and have great experience in dealing with infertility issues including polycystic ovaries, endometriosis, fibroids, age related subfertility, recurrent miscarriage and male problems.


Obstetric practice is about experience, availability and reassurance. I therefore focus on one excellent, central hospital and cap my delivery numbers to ensure a personal and caring service. Early booking is recommended. Please call Sarah, my practice manager, to discuss your care and fees.


My training in gynaecology is extensive. Gynaecological procedures, if needed, take place at the Mater Hospital (North Sydney) and Genea Day Surgery Unit (CBD). I have previously held a fellowship in minimally invasive surgery, presenting papers in England, Germany and the United States.

CONSULTATIONS take place in Macquarie St near Martin Place and at the Mater Clinic in North Sydney. Interpreters can be arranged.
