Dr Karen Joash graduated from Imperial College, London University and successfully obtained a place on the London Postgraduate obstetrics and gynaecology training programme and has worked at many of the prestigious London teaching hospitals during her training. She specialised in maternal medicine, advanced labour ward practice and early pregnancy scanning and management.

She is an obstetrician and gynaecologist who is passionate about delivering high quality care to all women. Her notable flair is in empathy, communication and a personal approach to her patients.

She is well known for being a skilled labour ward practitioner. Her aim is to help women achieve the type of delivery which is tailored to their wants and needs. With her holistic approach and knowledge of both low risk and high risk conditions she is able to provide this for all women.

In her NHS role she is the lead for postnatal care and perinatal mental health, understanding the birth journey doesn’t stop at delivery, but support in this period can be crucial. She is also the lead for maternity guidelines at Imperial Healthcare NHS Trust and is principled on the importance of safe practice.

Her passion for excellence in care led to her appointment as Training Programme Director for doctors in postgraduate training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in North West London. In addition she is Director of Medical Education for the Women and Children’s division at Imperial Healthcare Trust; and sits on the education quality assurance board at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.

To be able to provide sufficient time to her maternity clients, the numbers of patients are capped, so book early to avoid disappointment.
