Pioneer Health has a dedicated team of doctors, nurses and receptionists who are committed to your care throughout your pregnancy. Our GP Obstetricians have privileges at Albany Health Campus and are available on-call for our maternity patients*. Our current GP obstetricians are Dr David Tadj, Dr Carly Roxburgh, Dr Yen Lo, Dr Sourabh Joshi. and Dr Janelle De Graaf. Our team includes clinicians skilled in caesarean section. Should you require an elective, repeat or emergency caesarean section, this service is provided by our Pioneer Health team.
* Our GP Obstetricians attend weekend deliveries on a rotational basis. This means that should you deliver on the weekend, the Pioneer Health GP Obstetrician on roster will attend, i.e. it may not be your GP Obstetrician.
