Dr Fiona Dalzell studied medicine at the University of Queensland graduating in 1988. Fiona quickly followed her passion of obstetrics and gynaecology and began her specialist training in London in 1992. She returned to Australia for completion of her studies, working in rural Queensland Hospitals and finalising training at the Mater Mothers’ Hospital, Brisbane. She has been delivering babies for over 20 years and intends to continue helping women for years to come. Fiona specialises in high-risk obstetrics and women with medical conditions in pregnancy. She is a member of the Society of Obstetric Medicine of Australia and New Zealand.
Fiona is also a founding member of the River City Obstetric Group, a Brisbane-based group of female specialist Obstetricians that use an on-call roster to deliver high-quality 24-hour obstetric care at Mater Mothers’ Private Hospital (MMPH), South Brisbane.
Being a mother herself, Fiona appreciates the high expectations of women and their families during the pregnancy. Ample time is allocated in consultations to discuss both physical and emotional concerns. A keen triathlete, Fiona promotes healthy life habits of balanced eating and exercise during and after pregnancy.
