Pregnancy and Skin

Obstetric Dermatology involves the management of skin health during pregnancy and breastfeeding.  Pregnancy-associated skin concerns range from common benign conditions such as  stretch marks and skin pigmentation to rarer specific dermatoses of pregnancy, some of which are associated with maternal and fetal risk. Management requires knowledge of which treatments are safe and practical while a woman is pregnant or breastfeeding Dr Wines has a Diploma in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and an interest in Womens Dermatology. She has recently published on this topic.
