Meet the Team

Nurse Unit Manager – Gabrielle Hallahan

I have been a midwife for 34 years. What I enjoy the most about my job is supporting mothers and families’ following the birth of their children. I endeavour to meet each and every family that comes to my ward to show my support and create meaningful relationships with them. I am proud of the team that we have here at St George Private Hospital, we look forward to welcoming you and supporting your family throughout your journey into parenthood.

Maternity Liaison Officer – Carolyn Broadwood

Throughout your pregnancy, I will be your point of contact with general information for you and your family on your journey into parenthood. Along with general information I will provide information on our Childbirth and Parenting programs. Whether this is your 1st, 2nd, or 3rd baby, I’m here to answer any questions you may have about St George Private Hospital. Following the birth of your child I will visit you during your stay with us to ensure you are comfortable and have everything that you need.

Lactation Consultant – Karen Gage

Once you have had your baby, I will be on the ward assisting you when you may be feeling the most vulnerable. Breastfeeding can be a difficult task to master but I will be there to help you and your baby offering support. Each day at 11 am we have breastfeeding and sleep/settling education sessions to assist you and your partner to grow in confidence to manage your new baby. I have more than 20 years of experience as a midwife/lactation consultant/child and family nurse working in the hospital and community settings. I successfully breastfed my own son for 15 months, this experience plus my own knowledge has equipped me with the skills to help you with breastfeeding your new baby. I look forward to meeting you on our postnatal ward.
