Dr Teresa MacDonald cares deeply about women's health and about ensuring women are fully informed about their medical management and options, taking the time required to explain the evidence behind her recommendations. Teresa takes a patient-centred approach prioritising women's wishes for their care, and works with patients to achieve the best possible outcomes. Teresa is committed to reducing preventable stillbirth, and her PhD research focuses on new ways in which to better assess placental function, fetal growth and wellbeing, and pregnancy risk.
