Kate has been working for women as a specialist obstetrician and gynaecologist for 9 years. She is warm, relateable and believes in having a conversation rather than consultation. Having worked in Uganda and Niger as well as in rural Australia, Kate has incorporated her eclectic experiences into her ethos of embracing and respecting multiculturalism and diversity in women’s health.
You can be assured of her caring and sensible approach to all your health needs.
Through shared experience, clear communication, trust and management of mutual expectations, Kate commits to an approach that is cautious, thorough and optimistic.
Lyn has been a midwife for 20 years and has a wealth of knowledge and experience which she’ll share in a relaxed, raw and often hilarious manner.
Personally she has experienced all modes of birth, high risk pregnancy, miscarriage, the challenges of multiple birth and prematurity, and in 2021 she planned for and birthed her 6th baby at home with Kate by her side. She knows without a doubt how important knowledge and self advocacy are in achieving your desired birth.
No one is as invested in your birth experience as much as you are, but Lyn likes to think that she comes pretty close to sharing your excitement. She is enthusiastic and provides information that presents a complete non coercive framework that acknowledges risks in a sensible, rather than scary manner, to aid your decision making.
As guardians of birth, we are tasked with the responsibility of allowing the journey to progress with supervision, and to intervene only when necessary and after careful consideration and collaboration with women and their supporters. We embrace birth as a rite of passage that is a monumental life changing experience for every woman.
We believe in women being capable and armed with the tools to navigate this physiological journey and stand ready to intervene, but only if necessary. We encourage open discussion of birth preferences beyond simply having a healthy baby. For some women, achieving a low intervention vaginal birth is what they hope for, for others it may be a scheduled elective caesarean, and for many, it may be somewhere inbetween.
We understand the importance of getting it right so that women leave our care feeling proud of what they created and achieved.
