Dr Anna Holmes
MBBS FRANZCOG FRCOG, RCOG/RCR Diploma in Ultrasound
I did all my training in the UK, qualifying as a doctor in 1990 and started specialising in obstetrics after my basic first year jobs. I worked initially in London and obtained my MRCOG in 1996 and then moved to the south coast of England working in Southampton, a major teaching hospital, and the Channel Islands. I returned to London to do research looking at cervical lengths which has now become part of mainstream obstetric care, although I was one of many looking at the same topic. Whilst doing research I did my training in ultrasound working at the fetal medicine unit at University College Hospital London.
I completed my training in 2002 and then worked as a consultant for 6 months in the Isle of Wight which incidentally is where I was born, before coming to Australia. For the first three year’s I worked in Armadale doing a mixture of public and private and then moved to SJOG Murdoch Hospital at the beginning of 2007 and I have worked here since.
Dr Rhys Bellinge
Obstetrician - Joining the team in 2024
MRANZCOG, MPharmSc, MBBS, BSc(Hons), MReproMed (candidate)
I'm very much about making childbirth a gentle and minimally invasive experience. I'm also dedicated to reducing the need for forceps and episiotomy. In fact, I only consider vacuum-assisted delivery when it's absolutely necessary. My top priority? Ensuring both the mother is safe and the baby has a healthy arrival into the world.
With a major focus on complex obstetric emergencies at King Edward Memorial Hospital, I understand the importance of decisions during delivery, especially when considering the long term health of that child as they grow up. I'm passionate about optimising the best outcomes for both the child and the parents, drawing from my extensive knowledge of infant development. Your child's future? It's close to my heart, and I can't wait to be there for your family.
