DR COLIN BLAIR
Dr Blair is a graduate of the University of Western Australia (MBBS) and has been practicing medicine for 30 years. This experience includes six years of full time specialty training in obstetrics and gynaecology earning him the specialty degree of a Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetrics and Gynaecologists (FRANZCOG).
During his career as an Obstetrician, Dr Blair has lived and worked in Kalgoorlie, Hobart, Port Hedland and Perth. This has introduced him to interesting colleagues, inspiring mentors, lifelong friends and all kinds of people who were becoming parents for the first time, or even the tenth time (yes, amongst over 15,000 traditional births, Dr Blair did help deliver the tenth baby to a couple living in Perth and over 200 sets of twins and triplets in Hobart and Perth) – but he sees every single birth as being unique and special in its own way. And an experience he takes pride and delight in every single time.
In addition to his services as an Obstetrician, Dr Blair also cares for couples requiring preconception counselling, those with uncomplicated pregnancies and those with the most complicated medical and obstetric conditions. His principle motivation is to achieve a normal, safe birth for you and your baby.
Dr Blair is married with four children and lives very close to his consulting rooms at St John of God Medical Centre, and the adjacent St John of God Murdoch Hospital.
When not helping parents with welcoming a new family member, or enjoying time with his own family, Dr Blair likes to get out into Perth’s fresh air and beautiful environment on a bicycle or walk trail, and catching up with friends. He also has an intense passion for history, philosophy and social equality.
Dr Blair is supported by a dedicated and experienced team who all contribute to looking after you. This team includes a practice manager, secretaries and midwives all with over 30 years of experience each, and who are dedicated to providing outstanding care and support throughout your pregnancy and beyond.
Dr Blair also works closely with colleagues at St John of God Murdoch Hospital to provide 24 hours a day, seven days a week availability. Like all doctors he is on a weekend roster, though he is available to his patients every weekend if in Perth.
All have the benefit of also working with the many health care professionals at St John of God Murdoch Hospital which has leading maternity and nursery facilities (level two). This hospital operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and is staffed with carers and specialist midwives, lactation consultants, anaesthetists, surgeons, physicians, intensivists and paediatricians dedicated to you and your baby’s care.
