Meet Dr Mike Kamara

BHlthSci, BMedSci (Hons 1st class), MBBS (UWA), MRepMed (UNSW), FRANZCOG, FACOG

I had the privilege of growing up in a medical home learning the virtues of service from the cradle as they say. 

I convinced my father to let me see a caesarean delivery at 7 and I guess the rest was history.

In medical school I briefly toyed with the idea of doing internal medicine but after exposure to maternity and gynaecology I knew I couldn’t really do anything else and feel fulfilled.

There was just something about the amazing privilege of helping to safely bring a new live/lives into the world and the care afterwards that I knew I had to be a part of.

Meet Dr Barton Smith

BSc (hons 1st geology), PhD, MBBS, FRANZCOG

Bart wanted to be a doctor from a very young age, but became a geologist first. After ten years, he decided it was now or never, enrolled in medical school, and has loved every minute of it.

Helping women during pregnancy and birth is such a rewarding profession. The magic of childbirth inspired Bart to pursue this path as a young doctor, and the opportunity to help women with their own unique journey inspires him every day. He aims to make childbirth as friendly as possible, tailored to suit each individual as best he can.

Outside of medicine, Bart is very busy with six kids of his own, playing guitar in a band, coaching kids sports, gardening and always renovating. He occasionally freelances as a geologist, and loves talking about volcanoes, and human evolution. He loves researching new ways to make pregnancy care better, and is an avid reader of medical journals.
