About Me

I am a woman, a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister and a working doctor lady. So I know the difficulties, challenges and pressures that we have. I am passionate about growth in women. 

We need to understand our bodies. My aim is to educate, empower, enrich and inspire women through all the seasons of their life from birth, adolescence, their reproductive years, pregnancy, delivery, the after years and menopause.

My specific interests lie in 

  • Recurrent pregnancy loss and miscarriage
  • Reviving the practice of safe vaginal deliveries
  • Minimally invasive surgery
  • Laparoscopy 

I aim to improve a patient’s experience with their medical care so that they can become a partner in their care, rather than a participant.

The KPI Brand

I try to walk the talk so that I can understand the needs of my patients. Hence the logo “ it’s all about her” I want to move away from the traditional medical care where your doctor tells you what to do and aim for a more holistic approach.

The Future

The future is “Health in women“, a new age of Obstetric and Gynaecological care for modern women who are informed, empowered and in charge of their health.
