Dr Margie Harpham is a kind, calm and caring Obstetrician and Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialist.
She completed her medical degree at The University of Newcastle and her FRANZCOG at The Royal Hospital for Women winning the Medal for the highest mark in the examination across Australia and New Zealand during this time. She then completed her MFM subspecialty training in Sydney and Auckland.
Being a Maternal Fetal Medicine specialist, Margie is able to look after healthy ‘low risk’ pregnancies, as well as pregnancies where women are experiencing medical complications. Margie leads one of the first clinics for women with twin pregnancies in Australia, and runs a preconception counselling service. She has extensive experience with helping families who have experienced preterm birth or perinatal loss. She is one of the few subspecialists in Australia skilled in fetal therapy, able to perform highly specialised lifesaving procedures such as fetal blood transfusions, and perform in utero surgery.
Margie is a very positive person, who has an outstanding skill for communication. She strives to individualise care for each patient, by working with her to tailor care to meet her needs and desires for her pregnancy. She is a warm, genuine and down-to-earth person with a keen sense of humour. She practices obstetrics because she loves seeing a pregnancy develop and feels the ultimate sense of job satisfaction helping bring new life into the world.
Margie sits on the Examination Committee for the RANZCOG and is a member of the State-wide Obstetric Consultation service providing advice and assistance in Obstetric emergencies across the State.
Margie was born and raised on the North Shore of Sydney and lives locally with her husband and young family.
