Hi!  I am Lena, born and raised in India, but with Swedish parents.


I graduated as a nurse in Sweden in 1977 and then continued to study Midwifery in London.  Between 1981 and 1983 I worked in Bhutan as a Nurse/Midwife for the Leprosy Mission.  During this time, I met my Australian husband and became an Australian citizen some years later.  We now have two adult children.


I studied Medicine at Lund University in Sweden and graduated in 1997.  Since then I have been working in Australia and have completed a Diploma in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and am a Fellow of the Australian College of General Practice.  MC Family Medical Practice has been my ‘home’ since 2002 and I enjoy the support and fellowship we have here.


More recently I spent 2 ½ years in Manali, Northern India, working in a 55 bed hospital as the resident Obstetrician, Gynaecologist and Paediatrician.  I am an accredited Shared Antenatal Care Provider.


My other interests are Dermatology, minor procedures, Men’s Health, Tropical Medicine and Mental Health.


I am fluent in Swedish, English and Hindi.
