Dr Miranda Bradley
Dr Miranda Bradley is a General Practitioner and a mum of three young children.
Dr Bradley has had a passion for working in perinatal health ever since being a medical student at Monash University. She graduated from Monash in 2001 and over the last 20 years she has worked in many medical roles, including those with a specific focus on perinatal care, such as obstetrics, gynaecology, neonataology, paediatrics, emergency medicine & general medicine. Keen to pursue her broader interest in all aspects of perinatal health, she chose a career in General Practice, completing her specialist GP training in the UK in 2007.
As a GP, Miranda would often see new mums struggling after the birth of their baby. From her own personal and professional experience, she understands that becoming a parent is a time of great change and upheaval. Not only do mothers have their own physical and emotional health needs in the time around birth, but they now are responsible for the health and well being of their baby.
Dr Bradley always felt that a 15 minute GP appointment was never enough time to help these new mums with their wide range of needs. It had been a longstanding vision of hers to offer a medical home visit service to new mums and their babies. A complete service where she could spend more time with them, in the convenience of their own home, providing medical care that could help with their physical health, psychological health and also assist with parenting skills, feeding and baby settling issues.
Miranda's vision is now a reality - Thrive Perinatal.
