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.

Laura Millar

Registered midwife, BHSC Midwifery

I began my midwifery career in New Zealand, supporting women in home and hospital births, including high-risk situations.

In 2014, I moved to Australia, became an Endorsed Midwife, and expanded my practice beyond hospital settings, empowering women to achieve their desired birth experiences.

After relocating to Perth, I spent six months evaluating maternity hospitals, eventually joining JHC to lead the Midwifery Led Care programme.

My path to midwifery, influenced by my own experiences and my mother’s encouragement, fuels my passion to empower women through their maternity journeys, offering expertise in pregnancy, childbirth, and early parenthood.

Ellie White

Lactation Consultant

After my schooling in Ireland, I trained as a nurse and midwife in the UK, then moved to Sydney and later to Perth, where I also worked in infertility management. Alongside midwifery, I lecture on the subject and became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in 2006 after facing personal breastfeeding challenges.

I currently work at Joondalup Health Campus, using gentle parenting techniques to help mothers achieve their breastfeeding goals. I maintain my health through good diet and regular exercise.

I’m active in several professional groups, offer private lactation consultations, and share updates and advice through my Lactationyourway social media pages.



Since finishing school, I had always worked in financial administration. When I became a mother in 2022 my interests changed entirely and I knew I wanted to work alongside pregnant women & babies, it’s an amazing feeling being part of such a life changing journey for them.

Laura Kitson

Administration / Practice manager

I have always had a passion for women’s health. I worked for Ramsay Health Care for 13 years, but since becoming a mother myself I knew I wanted to transition from working in a large hospital setting to working for a smaller private practice. The opportunity to work at JOGG, with the amazing team was the perfect timing. I believe that together as a team we can achieve the best outcome for our women and mothers to be.

I really enjoy being that familiar face that greets our patients at each and every appointment. Being a part of their special journey is an absolute privilege.
