Dr Colin Walsh, MBBCh BAO DCH MRCOG MRCPI FRANZCOG CCT-MFM(UK) PhD

Obstetrician, Gynaecologist & Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist (expert in high-risk obstetrics)

Dr Colin Walsh is an experienced Obstetrician and Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist, who has been providing pregnancy care for almost 20 years. While many obstetricians profess a special interest in high-risk obstetrics, Colin is one of the very few qualified Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialists in Sydney; he completed an advanced 3-year fellowship in high-risk obstetrics and is recognised as an expert in caring for the most complex pregnancies. Colin’s areas of expertise include antenatal care and delivery of women with medical disorders in pregnancy, twins, previous pregnancy complications, IVF pregnancies and older mothers. He is also very happy to care for women with low-risk pregnancies, who can be reassured by Colin’s high-level qualifications and expertise in every aspect of pregnancy and birth.

Prior to commencing full time private practice, Colin was a Senior Staff Specialist at Royal North Shore Hospital, where he ran the Medical Disorders in Pregnancy clinic for 5 years. He now delivers patients exclusively at North Shore Private and The Mater hospitals.

In addition to his specialist fellowship in high-risk pregnancy, Colin completed a 3-year fellowship in female pelvic floor disorders, which he finds invaluable in counselling women about their birthing options. His specialist training was undertaken in Dublin, Sydney, New York and Cambridge, UK. Colin offers care based on the latest obstetric evidence and has himself published more than 90 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals. He holds a PhD from the University of New South Wales and has presented at national and international conferences.

Colin offers comprehensive pregnancy care and pre-pregnancy counselling appointments in his rooms in the North Shore Health Hub in St Leonards, on the North Shore Private hospital campus.

Obstetrician, Gynaecologist & Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist (expert in high-risk obstetrics)

I offer modern, evidence-based pregnancy care, with an emphasis on great communication and working together to achieve the best for you and your baby. I deliver babies at North Shore Private Hospital and The Mater.

I have higher qualifications and years of experience in both High-Risk Obstetrics and female Pelvic Floor disorders, having completed major fellowships in both of these areas. My advanced training gives me the expertise to care for every kind of pregnancy, whether your pregnancy is entirely straight-forward or extremely complex. I am very supportive of vaginal birth but also highly experienced in caesarean section.

I understand that you will have unique wishes and concerns for your pregnancy. My practice is a friendly, welcoming environment where I encourage you to ask questions and to feel comfortable discussing every aspect of your care. Good communication is at the heart of my approach, so that you are able to make the best, most informed choices for your pregnancy.

I am also very active in teaching and research. I have published more than 90 scientific papers, written chapters for major medical textbooks, acted as a reviewer for international medical journals and written a guest editorial for the British Medical Journal. I regularly teach medical students and junior doctors and have been invited to give lectures to GPs, midwives and other obstetricians, both in Australia and internationally.
