Dr Brooke Vandermolen MBBS BSc
Brooke is an NHS doctor currently working and training as a Registrar in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in London. She has experience clinically, dealing with all aspects of women’s health and pregnancy, including assessing patients with a range of gynaecological concerns, and performing and assisting in surgical procedures. Her research in the fields of maternal medicine and high-risk pregnancy has been presented at major international conferences and published in prominent medical journals.
Much more exciting than this, however, is that Brooke recently became a mother for the second time. Experiencing pregnancy and labour as a patient was one of the most transformative experiences of her career. This new perspective drove her to seek out and share answers to the questions she had herself when pregnant.
She created her educational platform “The OBGYN mum” via which Brooke shares insights and tips around pregnancy, birth, fertility, menopause and more through social media and blog posts. She aims to empower women by imparting knowledge in a relatable way and simplifying common issues.
As an experienced medical writer, Brooke has been featured in a range of UK media outlets such as The Telegraph and The Huffington Post.
