Dr Briony Andrew


GP Obstetrician and Lactation Consultant

Dr Briony Andrew has been working at Mt Barker Hospital, South Australia, as a GP Obstetrician and delivering babies since 2011. It has been, and continues to be, a wonderful experience! She loves the continuity of care that GP Obstetrics allows – not just for pregnancy and postnatal care, but also for the whole family. In 2018 she became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). Her interest in lactation began during her obstetric training; however, struggling to feed her own two children made her realise how hard it is to find good, evidence-based advice and support when things are not going well. She has experienced most of the complications of breastfeeding!! Her current professional passions are obstetrics and mother-baby care during the first year of life. She has completed training in Neuroprotective Developmental Care with the Possums Clinic, giving her expertise in the areas of breastfeeding medicine, infant sleep, unsettled infant behaviour and maternal anxiety and depression. She also enjoys women’s health more broadly. She loves to see mother-baby teams thrive and feels she is expertly placed to give the help that is needed. She currently runs "Adelaide Mums and Babies Clinic" with her colleague, Dr Rhiannon Smith. They work out of 4 locations across South Australia, providing help to families struggling with their babies.
