I completed my specialist training in obstetrics and gynaecology in the United Kingdom at the Royal Hallamshire hospital in Sheffield. Having worked in the UK for a while decided to move to sunny Australia and never regreted it. I have been working in Newcastle since 2007.
I have a keen interest in the well being of women of all ages. Hence provide care from adolescents to menopause.
Being a mother of 2 boys and having experienced motherhood herself Dr Somanathan is capable of understanding and appreciating women's choices in pregnancy and delivery.
Dr Nandini Somanathan works not only as a private practitioner, but as a part time senior staff specialist at John Hunter Hospital. She is also the training supervisor and mentor for junior doctors in training. This enables her to keep up-to-date with current practices the recent advances in the speciality.
