    Dr.Sean delivered our second baby last month.It was wonderful having Dr.Sean as our obstetrician as he was extremely calm,compassionate and supportive and didn’t hesitate to answer any questions we had through the process. He helped us work towards our birth plan. We also had our first child with Dr.Sean three years ago and as it was a great experience we did not hesitate to go back to him again.I can’t recommend Dr.Sean highly enough!

    Dr Burnet delivered our baby boy 6-weeks ago and we couldn’t be happier with the care provided. He’s calm, collected and has a genuinely caring nature.
    (Sean also delivered my daughter 2-years ago so we already knew we were in good hands!)
    I never hesitate to recommend him to anyone who asks and should I ever need an OB or GYN in the future, I know who to call.

    Dr Burnet delivered our 2nd baby girl in July of this year. It is hard to express how one feels about the person who helped bring your baby into the world. However I would say Dr Burnet is caring, reassuring, professional and just very easy to talk to.
    His presence, demeanor and the time he takes to respond to concerns and questions always put my mind at ease. I highly recommend him for ob/gyno care and want to thank him for taking such great care of me during both my pregnancies

    Sean is an amazing and caring Dr, he was very approachable and professional during my entire pregnancy and made me feel comfortable during my labour. I was very nervous leading up to my due date but he made me feel at ease. I would highly recommend Dr Sean Burnet to anyone having a baby.

    We had a fantastic pregnancy and birth experience thanks to Dr Burnet and his team!

    Sean is professional, calm and caring. Throughout the pregnancy Sean listened to all our concerns and answered any questions. We never felt rushed or unimportant even though it was an uncomplicated pregnancy. He immediately answered my call and squeezed in an appointment when I was worried about some pain, which was really reassuring. Sean was also proactive in providing us with information he thought would interest us.

    During the birth, Sean was great. His calm quick thinking allowed me to avoid a c section and give birth naturally.

    We hope to go back to Sean if we have another child and would recommend him to our friends.

    I had a wonderful birth experience with Dr Burnet, with the fantastic support of his midwifery team. I’d gone to a different obstetrician for the birth of my first child where my appointments were brief, there was little follow up and information pre-birth and a difficult delivery with poor communication, which left me with ongoing pelvic floor issues and a lot of regret. I was therefore very anxious about my second birth and was recommended to Dr Burnet by a friend as a better choice.
    My second birth with Dr Burnet couldn’t have gone better. He was thorough, objective and very patient throughout every consult, so I never felt rushed and was able to make a choice over my delivery which was well and truly informed. He provided clinical research papers when I asked for them, was accommodating through all my birth choices (like delayed cord clamping) and visited me every day in the hospital to check on my progress and answer any post operative questions that I had. My c section recovery was excellent and I required no pain relief whatsoever once I left hospital. I was able to achieve a joyful, calm birth with my daughter, where I felt in control and informed; free of the anxiety, fear and regret which I had experienced with my first child.
    Dr Burnet’s private midwives were also on shift at the Mater during my stay which was wonderful – I felt I had that additional level of support with breastfeeding, sleeping and settling which was a real value-add. The midwifes offer support and advice during your entire 6 week post partum period if you need it, which really differentiates Dr Burnet’s practice.
    Thank you Dr Burnet and team for delivering me the gold standard in obstetric care!

    We are so grateful to have Sean and his team, Amy and Ben throughout this journey. Sean is so calm and patient in answering our worries and questions. One thing that really stood out for us, was when Sean called us rightaway when we texted him about our pregnancy concern. We knew that we were in good hands. Thank you Sean, we will certainly come back if we have baby number two.

    I could not recommend Dr Burnet highly enough. He was professional, caring and I felt really well looked after throughout the entire process. His team are fantastic as well. Both midwives, Amy and Ben, went above and beyond with their support.

    I came to Sean’s practice late in my pregnancy as things with another obstetrician and I weren’t working out. Sean was wonderful from day one – kind, sensitive and open to helping me accomplish my goals for labour and delivery. I wanted a natural, vaginal delivery with little to no medical interventions and Dr Burnet assisted in letting me achieve that outcome safely, and with quality care. Thank you to him and his team for bringing my beautiful, healthy baby girl into this world 🙂

    Sean and his two midwives Amy and Ben provided the best care, advice and reassurance throughout my pregnancy and into delivery. No question too annoying or silly (I love me some Dr Google) and always answered with genuine interest and explanation. They are a wonderful team, and I just could not have been happier with how the whole pregnancy and birth went despite both having some complications. On top of everything medical, they are also fun and engaging. Can’t fault them, will definitely return if blessed with #2 in the future!

    I chose Dr Burnet after reading many positive reviews online and I was not disappointed!
    In addition to excellent clinical skills, if you are after an obstetrician that genuinely cares about their patients then I highly recommend Dr Burnet.

    We have been very lucky to have Sean deliver both of our boys at the Mater Hospital in the last 2 years.

    Throughout both pregnancies I found Sean very professional and whenever I had questions outside of appointments he always made himself available via phone/text to answer any questions/concerns I had which was very helpful and calming at times for me and my husband, especially on our first pregnancy.

    He listened carefully to my birth plan and took into consideration my wishes for both births and was very reassuring as it got closer to my due date with any concerns I had regarding the birth.

    Overall I would highly recommend Sean. Both births went very smooth and if we have a third we will definitely go back to Sean again.

    Having clinics in numerous locations was also very helpful especially for people who are located in The CBD and unable to travel to the hospital for appointments.

    Thanks Sean.

    Sean provides thorough and individual care and I felt comfortable and listened to when sharing my birth preferences towards the end of the pregnancy.

    Throughout my pregnancy Sean’s calm persona, attention to detail and time to answer questions put me at ease. During my labour and birth Sean reassured us and worked with us on our preferences whilst always ensuring my baby and I were safe at all times.

    I would recommend Sean to friends as an Obstetrician who puts his patient and her needs at the core of his practice. I was recommended Sean by a friend.

    My pregnancy and the birth of our first child was a very special time which also came with some challenges along the way however Sean was at the other end of the phone when needed.

    Sean is a fantastic OB and I would be happy to return to his care for another pregnancy and birth! 🙂

    Our GP recommended Dr Sean Burnet and we couldn’t have been happier with our choice. From the first time we met him we knew that he would be caring, thoughtful and professional. Throughout the pregnancy he answered all our questions whilst also educating us on what to expect. This was our first pregnancy and I can most definitely say we will be going back for any subsequent ones.

    Dr Sean Burnet was recommended to us via my GP and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an Obstetrician. We didn’t really have any idea what to expect but Sean and his team were able to answer all of our questions and talk us through the options. Sean was extremely supportive and attentive throughout all of the appointments. Our daughter was born safe and safe on 17 October 2018. Sean’s calm and kind nature was exactly what we needed during my pregnancy and delivery. I felt comfortable and supported in Sean’s care. Thank you Sean and team!

    I was seeing Dr Sean Burnet as my GYNAE so of course he looked after our prenatal care right through until the arrival of our baby girl and of course I used him when I fell pregnant again 5 months later with our baby boy. With 2 very different pregnancies and deliveries I cannot recommend him and his very attentive and friendly midwives Ben & Rebecca enough! Dr Burnet is calm, diligent, knowledgeable and kind and a god send through any pregnancy!

    I was always intent on a vaginal birth however during labour we discovered the cord was wrapped tightly around my daughters neck, she was in distress & a emergency cesarean was required, Dr Burnet was calm and supportive throughout the whole procedure and my baby was delivered safe and sound. After discovering I was pregnant again so soon we had to schedule a cesarean in as my body would not be ready to try for a VBAC labour. Again throughout the pregnancy and labour Dr Burnet was fantastic helping me and guiding us through until my post care. The incision remains small, tidy and is recovering very well.

    Now we have two gorgeous heathy and happy babies who thanks to Dr Burnet were safely delivered (especially my daughter as she would not have survived a natural birth). I can’t recommend him highly enough and now we can go back to GYNAE care.

    Dr Sean Burnet looked after our prenatal care right up until the delivery of our baby girl and we couldn’t be more pleased with his support, guidance, advice and care during this time. Dr Burnet is caring, friendly, diligent and empathetic. He was always checking to see how my husband and I were feeling in the lead up to the birth and was supportive to us as a couple and as individuals.

    In our situation, our baby girl was breech the whole way through. We had always intended on a vaginal birth however we had to plan for a C section in the end as she refused to turn. Dr Burnet explained the whole procedure to us and put my concerns to ease whilst also providing alternatives we could consider. On the day, the operation was very smooth, there was no pain during the procedure, it was a very calm process and the incision was small, tidy and is recovering really well.

    Now we have a beautiful and heathly baby who was safely delivered all thanks to Dr Burnet. I can’t recommend him highly enough and should we be fortunate enough to have more children in the future, I will happily return to Dr Burnet for my obstetrics care.

    Additionally, we had very attentive and friendly care from the midwives in his office as well.
