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.
Margie has public appointments at both The Royal North Shore Hospital and The Royal Hospital for Women. She 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 leads the preconception clinic at RNSH, and the twins clinic at the RHW. She is a senior clinician in the specialist obstetric clinic at RNSH, and 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.
Born and raised on the North Shore of Sydney and living locally with her husband and young family, when not working, Margie loves playing cricket, or escaping to her family farm in the Hunter Valley.
