Dr Di Poad

Di is an experienced Obstetrician and Gynaecologist who now works exclusively in private practice from rooms in Spring Hill.

Di trained at the University of Otago gaining her medical degree in 1987. Her further specialist training led to her becoming an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist who spent the first 10 years of her career working in Women’s Health in New Zealand.

Di moved with her husband and three children to Brisbane in 2008. She has cared for women and their babies for more than 20 years in New Zealand, England and Australia and prides herself on providing personalised care for each woman and her family. She has been a Senior Obstetrician at the Mater Mother’s Hospital overseeing the care of women, who have high risk pregnancies, teaching junior doctors in all aspects of medical care in pregnancy, labour and birth, postnatal care and gynaecological conditions.

Moving into private practice fulltime has enabled her to provide one to one care for women where she can concentrate exclusively on providing individualised care and excellent outcomes.

Being part of the female only River City Obstetric Group provides the benefit of collegial support as well as some degree of work life balance while achieving the safest model of care for her women. Di delivers exclusively at Mater Mother’s Private Hospital as having worked at a range of maternity hospitals in different countries she believes MMPH is unrivalled in providing outstanding care to women and their families.
