Here for your entire pregnancy journey from prepregnancy planning to post partum care

The care I provide for my patients is based on open communication, education and support. I get to know my patients and their family along the pregnancy journey with a gentle and friendly approach.


I support vaginal births for women when is it a safe and achievable option. I have the skills to provide vaginal births, instrumental births, Caesarean births and VBAC births.

I aim  to provide an non-judgemental, open and caring environment for women to discuss and explore their birthing choices. Your birth is not about right or wrong, it’s about feeling empowered so we both, together, make the safest plan for you and your baby.

Partners, children and friends are welcome to all visits. I enjoy meeting families, and it’s a delight to see children that I delivered visit me when they are toddlers or older. I have a drawer full of stickers and stamps to keep them entertained and always involve them in the appointments.

Although an uncomplicated vaginal delivery is often desired, there may be obstetric and maternal situations where it is not safe. I believe that vaginal birth should not occur at the expense of physical or psychological trauma or long term issues that remind women of their delivery decades after. I support women’s informed choices and believe women have the autonomy to make informed choices about their birth plans, including choosing elective caesarean sections if right for the individual.

My care continues into the postnatal period, ensuring post birth recovery, and assisting with future contraceptive needs, including IUD and Implanon insertion.

The services that I offer are:

  • Preconception counselling
  • Early pregnancy care (including miscarriage)
  • Antenatal care (including high risk pregnancies, twins, history of preterm birth)
  • Intrapartum care (care during labour)
  • Caesarean section
  • Post natal care (regular hospital visits and post partum check)
  • VBAC (vaginal birth after caesarean section)
  • ECV (external cephalic version) for breech
  • Post natal care (regular hospital visits and post partum check)
  • High risk pregnancies (including complex medical histories, multiple births, previous pre eclampsia, high BMI, hypertension etc)

“It will never cease to amaze me the joy and excitement I feel when delivering a baby into the world.”

Meet Pip

I am very lucky to have a job that I love, that is rewarding and very humbling. I love coming to work each day, my days are always different, and it will never cease to amaze me the joy and excitement I feel when delivering a baby into the world. In Obstetrics the joy of seeing a baby born never diminishes.

Dr Jodi Croft and I have established a Women’s centred specialist clinic ‘Amelie Private’ one of the first Women’s health clinic in Australia that offers supportive and specialist medical and allied health services. Our clinic is centred around exceptional Obstetric and women’s healthcare.
