Dr. Kristine Barnden

Dr Kristine Barnden trained as an obstetrician and gynaecologist in Tasmania, Victoria and South Australia, and gained her specialist qualifications in 2008. She was awarded the Diploma of Diagnostic Ultrasound in 2009.

Kristine also works at the Maternal Fetal Medicine Unit at the Royal Hobart Hospital where she scans and counsels women with high-risk pregnancies and performs procedures such as amniocentesis.  She teaches ultrasound skills to trainee obstetricians at the Royal Hobart Hospital and Women’s Imaging.

Kristine is passionate about the role of ultrasound in improving outcomes for women.

In developing countries, access to ultrasound can be lifesaving for pregnant women, and Kristine has made several trips to Indonesia and Papua New Guinea to teach basic ultrasound skills to doctors and midwives who are working in remote clinics.

Kristine has a special interest in the role that the fetal environment, and the physical, nutritional and emotional health of parents, play in influencing pregnancy outcomes and health right through life.  She is the chair of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists Special Interest Group on Environment and Sustainability.
