About Dr. Felicity Brims
Dr. Felicity Brims is an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist working in Canberra. She has a particular interest in infertility, management of abnormal pap smears and management of early pregnancy.
She has gained Fellowship with the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, has a Masters in Public Health and Tropical Medicine (JCU) and is completing her Masters in Reproductive Medicine (UNSW).
Felicity grew up in Canberra and moved to Queensland to attend Medical School at the University of Queensland. After obtaining a Rural Health Scholarship, she worked throughout rural Queensland, including in small country towns such as Charters Towers, Hervey Bay, Maryborough and in the Aboriginal community of Cherbourg.
Felicity gained her interest in obstetrics and gynaecology through her experience in rural medicine. Commencing specialist training in Queensland, she worked at The Mater Hospital in Brisbane, Logan Hospital, Townsville Hospital and Redlands Hospital. Moving to Sydney, Felicity worked as a Senior Registrar between Bankstown Hospital and St George Hospital, gaining additional experience in urogynaecology (women with bladder leakage or prolapse).
In 2006 a year volunteering for Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Boarders) as an Obstetrician was an experience never to be forgotten.
In 2011 Felicity commenced work as a Staff Specialist at The Canberra Hospital and in private practice as a Gynaecologist, gaining an accredited position as an Infertility Specialist with GENEA. She divides her time between her public appointment at the Canberra Hospital, where she does both obstetrics and gynaecology, and her private practice work in gynaecology and infertility. She currently has admitting rights at the Calvary John James Hospital in Deakin. In addition she has a teaching position at the ANU Medical School lecturing medical students in women’s health and is a training supervisor for RANZCOG: a mentoring role for trainee obstetricians and gynaecologists.
Moving to Canberra with her husband and young son has brought Felicity back to the city of her childhood and closer to family and friends. She is proud to say that she is from Canberra and excited to be working in the community she grew up in.
