Obstetrician Melbourne

Dr Chris Russell is a private obstetrician in Melbourne who specialises in low and high risk pregnancy, in particular the management of IVF pregnancies. Indeed, as both a fertility specialist and obstetrician, Chris is uniquely placed to offer pregnancy care to women undergoing IVF. This means you can be looked after by the one person from the time of your fertility treatment right through to the birth of your baby. Or alternatively, your IVF specialist can hand your care over to Chris once you are pregnant.

Chris’s practice is structured first and foremost as a solo private obstetrician’s practice. This means you will see Chris for all antenatal visits, and if there is ever an emergency, you will be cared for by Chris, not the covering doctor in a large group practice, or a practice midwife.

Chris’s practice is structured in this way so that, as often as possible, he can be available for his patients when continuity of care matters most: at the birth of your baby or in an emergency.

This level of care is achieved by Chris capping his pregnancy bookings, which ensures a more personalised experience for mothers. You can be confident in the knowledge that Chris will be the one looking after you every step of the way.

All antenatal visits occur at Chris’s private suites at Epworth Freemasons in East Melbourne or the Mercy Hospital for Women in Heidelberg. Patients are free to choose the site that is most convenient for them.

Dr Chris Russell is also an accredited private obstetrician at St Vincent’s Private in Fitzroy.
