Meet Dr Tamlin
In my youth I had the pleasure and passion to play, coach and referee basketball, and also avidly played amateur tennis. I currently golf – and not just because I’m a doctor – and have enjoyed the rare privilege of playing 18 holes with 3 generations of golfing fanatic Tamlin’s.
I perform Pilates regularly and still enjoy weekend motorbike riding through the Adelaide Hills with friends and colleagues on my exciting Ducati. Last year my group rode the breathtakingly beautiful Italian Alps, and have also enjoyed the thrill of ripping through the Philip Island Grand Prix Circuit and Sydney Motorsport Park.
Why I Love What I Do
Delivering healthy babies to healthy mothers is my number 1 professional passion. As an eager young medical student, I was profoundly inspired by the gift of delivering my first set of twins on a Good Friday back in 1985. From the late 1990s I refocused my professional goals and gratefully established myself full-time in obstetrics and gynaecology. Before that time, I could’ve been rostered on clinics or in emergency – which was deeply satisfying work – but I was able to understand that I truly loved being rostered on labour ward, and playing my part in the pure joy of the childbirth process. I believed back then that if I could devote all my professional energies and skills on the labour ward for the rest of my life, I would be a happy man.
Many years later I’m still a happy man. I consider helping women give birth to life to be one of the most profound privileges of my own existence. It is a genuinely unique opportunity at a very sacred and special period of every woman’s life, and the fact that I’m invited to be with them through the extended journey of pregnancy is a gift that fills me with gratitude.
