Dr Friebe describes his style as very laid back and consultative and believes every woman has the right to choose how certain aspects of their birth plan are implemented – provided the fundamentals are being following and the management of the labour is safe, he doesn’t mind.
“A lot of women just want to have a low intervention, natural child birth as possible. My job is more to guide people, to ensure the right thing is being done and that things are being done safely, but to give the patient the autonomy to make most of the decisions themselves” says Dr Freibe.
Dr Friebe undertook his specialist training in obstetrics and gynaecology at the Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne. Additionally, he completed a fellowship in York in the United Kingdom including the areas of gynaecological oncology and high risk obstetrics.
