Bio

With over 23 years of experience as a specialist Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, I have a wide range of women's health interests. I have a holistic approach to Obstetrics and Gynaecology with awareness of the importance of psychological factors, social wellbeing, lifestyle factors and good communication, in order to optimise obstetric and gynaecological outcomes for women, at all levels of risk. 

I participate in hospital, college and other O&G meetings to keep up to date. At RPA Women and Babies and University of Sydney Medical School I am involved with teaching medical students, registrars and Junior Medical Officers in O&G. 

I have a longstanding interest in Aboriginal Women's Health.  For 23 years I have worked at the Aboriginal Medical Service (AMS), Redfern, doing a weekly gynaecology clinic to facilitate access to to culturally appropriate specialist care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women. I work with an Aboriginal health worker by the name of Marion and appointments with me at the AMS are made via Marion, calling 9319 5823. 

On a weekly basis I partake in a public multidisciplinary antenatal clinic at RPAH Women and Babies - seeing women with multiple pregnancies, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women in pregnancy and women with a range of psychosocial issues in pregnancy.
In my practice at RPAH Medical Centre I work closely with an experienced, professional and friendly midwife, named Bridget, who is readily available to give advice to women in pregnancy and postnatally.  Bridget works in the rooms on Tuesdays Wednesdays and Thursdays.  She does postnatal visits at RPA Women and Babies if timing of postnatal stay permits.    Sandra, my wonderful receptionist of over 20 years, makes appointments and answers administrative questions via sandra@suejacobs.com.au or by telephone on 95161616.
