Obstetric Dermatology involves the management of skin health during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Dr Wines has a Diploma in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and an interest in Womens Dermatology. 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 published articles on this topic.
