Dr Natasha Andreadis

MBBS MMED FRANZCOG CREI INHC

Hi, I’m Dr Natasha Andreadis, more commonly known as Dr Tash.

I am qualified and experienced gynaecologist and fertility specialist. I’m also a Certified Reproductive Endocrinologist and Infertility (CREI) sub-specialist, making me uniquely qualified to manage infertility and hormonal issues.

I’m also a qualified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach (INHC). I help patients make sustained positive lifestyle changes to enhance their reproductive health. I’m also an I Quit Sugar expert as part of Sarah Wilson’s 8 week I Quit Sugar program.

“I believe in a holistic and integrative approach to health and have a particular interest in the impact of nutrition, lifestyle and environment on reproductive health.”

In 2000, I graduated from Medicine at the University of NSW. After many years of further study and practice, I became a fellow of the Royal Australian New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG). Before that, I underwent generalist training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney. In 2008, I won the RANZCOG award for the highest mark in the Oral MRANZCOG exam. In my final year of subspecialty training I was a research fellow at Oxford, United Kingdom and Utrecht, the Netherlands.

I love being a holistic and integrative fertility specialist. I want people to lead healthy lives. I enjoy helping them to improve their lifestyle and create health-promoting home and work environments.

I’m committed to sharing my knowledge and enjoy teaching as an Adjunct Lecturer at School of Clinical Medicine University of New South Wales. I also love to give my patients a look at the latest evidence with my informative and entertaining podcast and video blogs.

GET TO KNOW YOUR DOCTOR!

I grew up in...

Sydney’s Inner West, the Best!

When I am not working...

I like to learn and experience new things. I enjoy making clothes and sewing. I love reading a mind-blowing book and running along new trails.

I wish I could...

Encourage all women and men everywhere to embrace their feminine power (men have it too).

Most people don't know that...

After I finished all my medical studies, I completed a Certificate 4 of Fashion Design and Technology and worked as a volunteer stylist with Dress for Success in Sydney, helping disadvantaged women get back into the workforce.

My favourite holiday spot is...

Santorini!

When I was growing up, I wanted to be...

…what I am now. A Doctor. Second to that, a fashion designer.

The best advice my parents gave me was...

…always work hard, never give up and do things with a full heart and a big smile.

My Philosophy

The core values of our Newtown Fertility Centre

Listening to patients

Patients know their bodies better than anyone else, and it is this respect for the patient that sets us apart.

Keeping up-to-date with the latest evidence and medical information

I enjoy sharing the latest information with my patients and empowering them to take control of their health.

A friendly and nurturing environment

I understand many of the challenges facing patients on their fertility journey or path to better health. I hope to minimise any stress or inconvenience by providing a comfortable and supportive environment.

Every patient is unique

I know we are all different. I enjoy tailoring my approach to each individual.

Working in partnership with the patient

The relationship between specialist and patient works best when both are proactive in healthcare decisions. Together, a tailored management plan is put in place.

An integrative approach to health care

Good health is a total state of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social well-being. Every aspect is inter-related and important in achieving optimal wellbeing. A holistic approach to fertility allows me to combine medical, environmental and dietary advice, so that patients benefit the most.

Working with allied health professionals

I work with a range of experts to achieve the best health for my patients. Good health acts as the foundation for building healthy babies.

Podcast

The Fanny Mechanic Show with Dr Tash shares real, honest chats on reproductive and gynaecological health, fertility, sex, hormones and lifestyle issues.

Nothing is off limits. Nothing taboo. 

We answer questions you’ve been dying to ask with help from expert guests and everyday people.

Dr Tash TV

I love sharing my knowledge about gynaecology, fertility, nutrition and environmental aspects of health. This is done in the course of my consultations, but also through my YouTube channel Dr Tash TV.
