Dr Janet Vaughan is a supportive and caring obstetrician with 20 years experience in obstetric care including normal pregnancy, ultrasound, fetal medicine and complicated pregnancy.
She has a special interest in high risk pregnancy as she is a fetal medicine specialist. She previously directed the Fetal Medicine Units at both Queen Charlotte’s and Chelsea Hospital in London UK as well as Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney. She has also practiced fetal medicine at the Mater Mothers’ Hospital in Brisbane and John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle.
Dr Vaughan currently runs a boutique fetal medicine service in her rooms in Willoughby.
Dr Vaughan has a particular interest in multiple pregnancy, having started the first Twins Clinic in NSW when I worked at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, meaning she can care for a pregnancy as well as perform the serial scans that are usually associated with having twins.
Dr Vaughan is a Member of the Council of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (RANZCOG). On behalf of RANZCOG she is the senior examination coordinator for obstetricians and gynaecologists in training. Also, on behalf of the RANZCOG, she provides and manages ultrasound courses to training obstetricians across Australia.
Dr Vaughan’s practice at Willoughby is co-located with her obstetric practice and offers a NATA accredited diagnostic ultrasound service with a dedicated ultrasonographer and state-of-the-art top of the range equipment. Routine pregnancy scans can be performed at the same time as pregnancy visits. 3D scanning is also available.
Women are encouraged to seek information to optimise their health prior to becoming pregnant. This is particularly important if they are having problems getting pregnant or have a chronic medical illness, had a previous complicated pregnancy or have a family history of genetic conditions.
