Dr Colleen Toner will be returning to practise at Wellness Medicine on 29th August after eight months’ maternity leave.

Her son, Keir Fraser Toner, is a healthy bubbling addition to the family, although “life is often too exciting for him to sleep!”, says Colleen.

“I have very much enjoyed my maternity leave and the insider knowledge of motherhood will also help with my interests in women’s health and paediatrics.”

Colleen says she has learned many things and recognises how important mothers’ instincts and observations are as clinical information and how important networks of health resources are for women and families.

“I am now looking forward to coming back to work and rejoining my Wellness Medicine team,” Colleen says.
