DR RAHUL SEN
Obstetrician BA; MB BS; FRANZCOG; DTM&H; Grad. Dip. Ec.
Dr Sen is an obstetrician and gynaecologist who specialises in high-risk pregnancies and was Lynn de Voy’s obstetrician for the birth of their twins. He is based at both the Prince of Wales Private Hospital and the Royal Hospital for Women, where he runs the diabetic obstetric clinic with Dr Sandra Lowe.
Dr Sen was born in India and raised in the UK, educated in the Steiner system and homeopathic medicine before going to a Boys Grammar school in Gloucestershire. He came to Australia in 1984 for a holiday and loved it so much that he decided to stay, working and travelling around Australia and the world for several years.
Dr Sen studied medicine at Sydney University and was politically active, becoming President of the Medical Society and the Students Union and travelling to Worlds Intervarsity Debating as an adjudicator.
He trained at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, the Canberra Hospital and the Royal Hospital for Women in Randwick, before returning to the UK in 2003 to complete his Fellowship and gain experience in high-risk obstetrics and maternal medicine at Queen Charlotte’s & Chelsea Hospital in London.
He returned to Australia in 2006 as consultant at the Royal Hospital for Women and Prince of Wales Private Hospital. He is currently engaged in a mix of public and private work in both obstetrics and gynaecology. Dr Sen enjoys teaching and has a special interest in obstetric emergency training.
Dr Sen works closely with the mother-to-be, their partner, midwife and other support person/people to build trust and help make the birth as easy, risk-free, and satisfying as possible. Dr Sen is more supportive of some alternative health therapies that some of his clients undertake although he never recommends anything that isn’t evidence-based.
“We have a poor understanding of many areas of health, including how the mind works. There are differing explanations and a range of natural health care options outside the ‘norm’ that can bring women great relief. I like to be open to alternative ideas while practising safe obstetrics.
“Of course, I only practise things that I know and I find that most women won’t ask for my recommendation anyway – if they believe in a particular therapy, they will go and get it.”
Dr Sen also has a Diploma in tropical medicine and hygiene and hopes to work for the UN in years to come.
“Many countries have far less success in childbirth than Australia and the statistics for maternal and infant morality in the third world are staggering, and shameful. Much of this comes down to basic things like public health and hygiene. I believe it is every woman’s right to the highest quality care during pregnancy and childbirth. We also need to provide better support to women in their early days of motherhood to ensure that they and their children are given every opportunity to thrive.”
