This week marked the start of a new role for me. I have returned to full time clinical practice as a Director of Obstetrics and Gynaecology in a bustling regional town in New South Wales. This is a great opportunity for me to apply what I have learned as an educator and researcher to a clinical site.
I am still coming to grips with what my working week will look like. Since the inception of Birth Small Talk I have aimed to post new content weekly, but I have given myself permission to wait and see whether that is a realistic goal or not for this coming year. Hold tight and let’s see what is possible over the coming months!
- Are intrapartum fetal monitoring guidelines fit for purpose?
- Long-term cardiovascular outcomes of an abnormal fetal heart rate pattern in labour
Wishing you well on the new journey life is taking you on. I’m sure you will achieve a great many things for women, families and the professionals who care for them. I look forward to more conversations from birth small talk as and when you are able. Life presents us with opportunities to seize the day. I know you are up-to the challenges.
C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S Kirsten..What wonderful news – yes for you, but even more so so the up and coming O&G’s who will have the privilege of working under your guidance and direction.. and moreover the women and babies of whatever region to which you have been appointed.

Good luck with your new job and the opportunities it will present. I have enjoyed your posts enormously and long may they continue.
Congratulations Kirsten- delighted for you.
I am sure this new journey in your career will be enriching for all concerned. I look forward to your blogs- at whatever pace you write them.
Your blogs certainly make colleagues from my fraternity think a lot. It includes me too!
What a blessing you are to our service. Thrilled to have you onboard – let’s do breech now. The women deserve nothing less!!!
