Dr Sarah Livingstone
Sarah is a highly skilled and caring female obstetrician & gynaecologist, offering personalised, holistic, and empathetic care to women of all ages.
Sarah has completed training in some of Sydney’s finest hospitals including Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, The Royal Hospital for Women and St Vincent’s Private & Public hospitals. She has gained rural experience at The Tweed Head’s Hospital & Royal Darwin Hospitals. Sarah completed an extra year of training in advanced laparoscopic and urogynaecology surgery at St Vincent’s Hospital gaining additional expertise in minimal invasive surgery and complex pelvic floor repair.
With three children Sarah understands the personal journey involved in seeking gynaecological and obstetric care and her personable approach makes patient’s feel comfortable to discuss their health openly with a strong emphasis on patient-led decision making.
Sarah is a Staff Specialist at The Royal Hospital for Women in Randwick. In this role she oversees the care of women through the Midwifery Group Practice Obstetric Model of Care.

Outside of medicine Sarah would say her greatest achievement is her three children and busy family life. On the weekends she rides her bike to the beach and manages her son’s soccer teams. Prior to medicine Sarah was an elite rower and knows the dedication required to achieve your goals.
As an experienced clinician, Sarah’s mission is to provide patients with up to date, evidence-based medicine tailored to the individual’s circumstances and wishes. Her professional, thoughtful, and friendly manner is a comfort to women seeking her care.
