Dr Colin Walsh, MBBCh BAO DCH MRCOG MRCPI FRANZCOG CCT-MFM(UK) PhD
Obstetrician, Gynaecologist & Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist (expert in high-risk obstetrics)
Dr Colin Walsh is an experienced Obstetrician and Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist, who has been providing pregnancy care for almost 20 years. While many obstetricians profess a special interest in high-risk obstetrics, Colin is one of the very few qualified Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialists in Sydney; he completed an advanced 3-year fellowship in high-risk obstetrics and is recognised as an expert in caring for the most complex pregnancies. Colin’s areas of expertise include antenatal care and delivery of women with medical disorders in pregnancy, twins, previous pregnancy complications, IVF pregnancies and older mothers. He is also very happy to care for women with low-risk pregnancies, who can be reassured by Colin’s high-level qualifications and expertise in every aspect of pregnancy and birth.
Prior to commencing full time private practice, Colin was a Senior Staff Specialist at Royal North Shore Hospital, where he ran the Medical Disorders in Pregnancy clinic for 5 years. He now delivers patients exclusively at North Shore Private and The Mater hospitals.
In addition to his specialist fellowship in high-risk pregnancy, Colin completed a 3-year fellowship in female pelvic floor disorders, which he finds invaluable in counselling women about their birthing options. His specialist training was undertaken in Dublin, Sydney, New York and Cambridge, UK. Colin offers care based on the latest obstetric evidence and has himself published more than 90 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals. He holds a PhD from the University of New South Wales and has presented at national and international conferences.
Colin offers comprehensive pregnancy care and pre-pregnancy counselling appointments in his rooms in the North Shore Health Hub in St Leonards, on the North Shore Private hospital campus.
