Obstetrics

David has been looking after women and their babies for over 20 years. He has all of the necessary skills to look after your wellbeing during this time of great change.

Whether your pregnancy is low risk or needs special attention, David will be able to give you the attention and time that is needed.

David works in a solo practice, which means he is on call for your needs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through your chosen hospital. During times of annual leave, he will make sure you are looked after by another skilled Obstetrician who has a similar work practice. You will be given ample notice of any time that he is away.

He delivers babies at Mona Vale Hospital and the Sydney Adventist Hospital (the San). From November 2018 Mona Vale Hospital will close and all services will be transferred to the New Northern Beaches Hospital. 

Visits usually start at 10 weeks pregnant, then every 4 weeks until 32 weeks. After this visits are fortnightly until 37 weeks, then weekly until the end of the pregnancy.

Your partner and other support people are more than welcome to come to any or all of the visits.

Please contact his receptionist for the latest details about fees.
