About Dr Amanda Ward

After graduating from Monash University in 2007 with honours, Amanda commenced specialist training in 2011 under the direction of several esteemed obstetricians and gynaecologists at Monash Health, Eastern Health and Ballarat Base Hospital.

Amanda provides holistic, patient centred care for women with gynaecological conditions including abnormal periods, endometriosis, pelvic pain, polycystic ovarian syndrome, the investigation of infertility, the follow-up of abnormal cervical screening and the management of the symptoms of menopause. At each stage of the reproductive journey, Amanda is focused on empowering women through education and patient-centered care.

Within her Obstetric practice, Amanda is skilled in the management of complex vaginal births, including vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC), breech and twin deliveries. Amanda is also able to care for patients who are of higher risk due to pre-existing medical, surgical and mental health conditions, fetal anomalies and pregnancy complications.

Having had three children herself, Amanda is well aware of the joys and challenges that pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period can hold. She is committed to providing women with personalised and holistic care, in combination with education and support in order to partner with women and their families through this life-changing journey.

Amanda has a passion for education and international women’s health, having spent six months of her training in Fiji, working and teaching the local Obstetrics and Gynaecology trainees at Lautoka hospital. She has also set up scholarship programs to train local doctors, nurses and allied health staff in remote Tanzania and conducted research in the region to improve maternal health outcomes. She enjoys teaching and mentoring both junior trainees and medical students as part or her ongoing commitment towards the improvement of women’s health care.
