Shona has two children so knows first-hand about the joys and terrors that new parenthood brings. Her eldest is 9, her youngest is nearly 5 and starting ‘big school’ next year. She understands the juggle of work and family, and has certainly had her own share of day care germs lovingly brought home by both children.

Apart from her first-hand experience with parenting, her GP work is centred around the family unit with keen interests and postgraduate qualifications in women’s and children’s health. Shona believes in the importance of a connected network to help with emotional health. She has extra training in areas of mental health and is always happy to be a support during periods of emotional struggle.

New parenthood can be both exciting and daunting, and at North Sydney Doctors we are happy to contribute to your network of support.

We're here to take care of you
