Dr Stephen Sonneveld (Gynaecologist)
Steve is a specialist in gynaecology, obstetrics and fertility. He prides himself on building a relationship with all his patients, and providing an attentive and individualised approach for all couples and individuals.
Many of Steve’s fertility patients undergo IVF after being diagnosed with fertility issues including unexplained infertility, and he supports them by encouraging them to continue to try for a natural pregnancy while also investigating the most suitable advanced treatments for their needs.
Over the last 15 years he has also developed an interest in antenatal screening for genetic abnormalities, including chorionic villus sampling and amniocentesis. He has carried out more than 2,000 procedures. He also offers specialist services for gynaecological disorders, non-invasive prenatal diagnosis and cystic fibrosis carrier screening.
Steve graduated with a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) from Melbourne University in 1978 and completed his residency at Austin Hospital in Melbourne. After deciding to specialise in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, he completed further training while working at North-West Regional Hospital (NWGH) in Burnie and then spent five years in that field in the United Kingdom.
After returning to Tasmania in 1989, Steve was admitted as a Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (FRANZCOG) in 1990 and joined TasIVF.
