Dr Jennie Connell

"The well-being of women and babies is my passion.  My aim is to help you to plan and experience the healthiest of pregnancies."

Even before you become pregnant, you might be worried that you could have a high risk pregnancy and birth. Sometimes even the healthiest of normal pregnancies can become high risk along the way.  Sometimes a pregnancy might have an anxious start, but then continue peacefully.  Jennie has particular interests and experience in providing care for you no matter what. 
Would you like to talk about your optimal health for future pregnancy? If you are still in the early stages of planning a new pregnancy, Jennie can offer you personalised pre-conception health advice, and early pregnancy care. 
Pregnancy can be a life changing time.  Your appointments with Jennie will have plenty of time for you to talk about any physical or emotional concerns that you might have.
