Dr Colin Walsh, MBBCh BAO DCH MRCOG MRCPI FRANZCOG CCT-MFM(UK) PhD
Obstetrician, Gynaecologist & Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist (expert in high-risk obstetrics)
I offer modern, evidence-based pregnancy care, with an emphasis on great communication and working together to achieve the best for you and your baby. I deliver babies at North Shore Private Hospital and The Mater.
I have higher qualifications and years of experience in both High-Risk Obstetrics and female Pelvic Floor disorders, having completed major fellowships in both of these areas. My advanced training gives me the expertise to care for every kind of pregnancy, whether your pregnancy is entirely straight-forward or extremely complex. I am very supportive of vaginal birth but also highly skilled in caesarean section.
I understand that you will have unique wishes and concerns for your pregnancy. My practice is a friendly, welcoming environment where I encourage you to ask questions and to feel comfortable discussing every aspect of your care. Good communication is at the heart of my approach, so that you are able to make the best, most informed choices for your pregnancy.
I am also very active in teaching and research. I have published more than 90 scientific papers, written chapters for major medical textbooks, acted as a reviewer for international medical journals and written a guest editorial for the British Medical Journal. I regularly teach medical students and junior doctors and have been invited to give lectures to GPs, midwives and other obstetricians, both in Australia and internationally.
