Connection is what sustains the spirit and the soul. We will be posting positive messages from our members and staff. Let’s share our thoughts, feelings and experiences. We may not be physically together but we are still a family, the RANZCOG family, your family. Written messages of up to 200 words or short, 30 second, videos can be sent to Andre Khoury, RANZCOG Head of Communications and Public Affairs at [email protected]

We will run contributions on the RANZCOG Wall in our newsletter Connect.

Here is a post from FRANZCOG Dr Debjyoti Karmakar

I want to thank all my colleagues including doctors, nurses, midwives, administrative staff, environmental services, and security for turning up to work. 
It’s getting bleaker and with elective work and attendances slowly grinding to a halt. The hospital corridors look deserted and it’s not very uplifting for our spirits. 
Some of us have families overseas and the uncertainty about their health, and in times of travel restrictions, is unnerving. 
We are at risk of contracting and carrying the coronavirus but have responded to the call of our duty and have been turning up to work if well and doing our best for the community. 
I’m proud of our resilience. 
These last few weeks, I have felt the gratitude from the general public for what we do.
We have to continue to support each other, being part of essential services.
I’m proud to be a health professional, an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist and a Fellow of RANZCOG.  Let’s tide this over, together.
