Pregnancy care

Kiran will provide you with personalised care and will guide you and your partner through the pregnancy journey.

Continuity of care seeing the same doctor is absolutely essential for an enjoyable pregnancy and a safe birth with your preferences as a priority.

Trained at the busy Royal Women’s Hospital and Monash Health in Melbourne, Kiran has the experience and skillset to be able to safely look after both low and higher-risk pregnancies.  He is able to look after women with diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid disorders, inflammatory bowel disease (e.g. Crohn’s disease) and other medical conditions. He will work collaboratively with other medical specialists to help manage these conditions. He supports women interested in VBAC (vaginal birth after caesarean section) and vaginal twin birth.

Kiran is passionate about optimising the mental wellbeing of women and their partners during pregnancy and the post-partum period.  As a testament to this, he helped found the Casey Perinatal Mental Health multi-disciplinary collaboration.

He provides pregnancy and birth care primarily at St John of God (SJOG) Hospital in Berwick. For couples without private health insurance, Dr Kiran can provide private care at Monash Health (Casey).

With admitting privileges at a tertiary hospital, you can be assured that if your pregnancy becomes higher-risk or baby needs premature birth, Kiran can continue your care at Jessie McPherson Private Hospital which is co-located with Monash Newborn and Children’s Hospital.

Kiran performs a bedside ultrasound at the early visits where you can see your baby and hear its heart beat.
