Why do you do Obstetrics?
Being part of a birth is a privilege. I enjoy following my patients through such an exciting journey and providing great continuity of care as their children grow up.
What is your birth philosophy?
I pride myself on assisting my patients to navigate the birth of their children in a safe environment which fulfils their birth plan. The health and safety of mum and baby is also important to me, as well as maternal satisfaction and providing an inclusive service, which is why I am happy to be part of Western Obstetrics.
What gives you joy?
Spending time with my family and my pets.
