Dr Colin Walsh
Suite G6, 460 Pacific Hwy, St Leonards NSW 2065 Australia
Dr. Colin Walsh is an experienced Obstetrician and Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist, who has been providing pregnancy care for almost 20 years. Whilst 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 has 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, twin pregnancies, women with 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 antenatal clinic for 5 years. He now delivers his patients exclusively at North Shore Private Hospital and the Mater Hospital and is highly experienced in all modes of birth. In addition to his specialist fellowship in high-risk pregnancy, Colin also 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 is abreast of the latest obstetric evidence and has himself published more than 90 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals. He holds a PhD in pelvic floor disorders from the University of New South Wales and has presented at national and international conferences. Colin offers antenatal consulting and pre-pregnancy counselling in his main rooms in St Leonards and at the Wellshare Clinic, George Street in the Sydney CBD.

Having completed his training in Australia he took up a position of Visiting Lecturer and then Clinical Associate Professor in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in Shatin. At that time he continued in private Obstetrics and Gynaecology as well as embarking on sub-speciality training in Urogynaecology, gaining certification in that field in 2002. Upon his return to Australia in 1997 Dr Brieger was appointed acting Director of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at King George V Memorial Hospital for Mothers and Babies until his appointment as a Visiting Medical Officer in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney. In 2005 he was appointed as a Senior Consultant in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Royal North Shore Hospital. He held that position until 2013 at which time he decided to concentrate on private Obstetrics and Gynaecology at both the Mater Hospital, Sydney and North Shore Private Hospital, Sydney. His work in academia and teaching has been continuous. He has over 20 publications in peer reviewed international journals, has been awarded research grants both in Australia and overseas, and has been an examiner for the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists from 2005 to 2015. He continues to be actively involved in research, in particular in the area of pre-eclampsia or hypertension in pregnancy. He was instrumental in the formation of the research organisation PEARLS, a body that raises funds for research into pre-eclampsia. As a committee member for the NSW Medical Council since 2015, he is committed to maintaining a high standard of medical care. He has an interest in both high risk and low risk Obstetrics.
