Providing gynaecological care to women of all ages.

Gynaecology

The gynaecologists at Kindred provide a broad range of gynaecological services to meet the needs of all women.

These services are delivered in the Kindred ethos with a personalised service designed around clinical needs, personal preferences and priorities.

Gynaecological care means that you will have a specialist gynaecologist who will care for you at each visit, through every procedure and in an emergency if required. During this time, you can also have input from other Kindred clinicians if required.

Kindred gynaecologists manage the following conditions:

  • Abnormal pap smears
  • Menstrual disturbance
  • Pelvic organ prolapse and incontinence
  • Pelvic pain including pain during sexual intercourse
  • Infertility and recurrent miscarriage

Kindred gynaecologists provide the following services:

  • Colposcopy
  • Insertion of intra-uterine devices, including Mirena
  • Open pelvic surgery
  • Laparoscopic or minimally invasive pelvic surgery including hysterectomy
  • Vaginal pelvic surgery including prolapse repair and incontinence surgery

Continuity of care with your gynaecologist is a priority at Kindred. Occasionally your gynaecologist may not be available in which case another Kindred gynaecologist will always be available.

All consultations and procedures attract a Medicare rebate with a referral from your GP.

Frequently Asked Questions

For the first time, private midwifery and obstetrics have been brought together to allow complete continuity with a team who support you in your preferences and unique journey.

In other models, accessing midwifery care means that if you need input from an obstetrician, it may be someone you have never met before and doesn’t understand your story, journey and preferences. Kindred midwives are the only private midwives who are able to provide one on one labour and birth care at Mater Mothers Private Hospital, with back up of like-minded obstetricians that you also know and trust.

Similarly, in other practices, obstetric patients may not meet a midwife until the day of labour, and or have input from a number of different midwives, which can be difficult. If you chose to have care with one of the doctors at Kindred for your pregnancy journey, Kindred midwives will see you during your pregnancy for education and support, then for six weeks of in-home midwifery visits.

Kindred has been established as a ‘best of both worlds’ approach, to allow families care that is specifically important to them. At no other practice can you access complete continuity from a like-minded team.

Kindred’s unique practice model means you can choose to have complete care with midwives and obstetricians who recognise that not all families need or want the same thing. Therefore we have designed Kindred with an understanding that care is better delivered in collaboration, rather than isolation. For the first time, Kindred has brought private midwifery and obstetric care together to allow access to and continuity from known care providers throughout your entire journey.

Continuity in care providers has been identified as the most influential factor in both optimal clinical outcomes and positive experiences in maternity care.

Continuity  means unbroken and consistent care from a known person/s. It promotes autonomy, self-efficacy, and increased satisfaction through enabling informed decision making.

Working collaboratively in maternity care is paramount. Midwives and obstetricians have skills and knowledge which compliment each other, and when used with like-mindedness to support women and families in their unique journey, optimal outcomes are achieved, both in terms of clinical outcomes and positive experiences.

Kindred is the only practice where continuity and collaboration between midwives and obstetricians is at the core of practice philosophy and is provided throughout the entire journey – from early pregnancy, throughout labour and birth, and for six weeks after birth.
