ABOUT DR. DE GOUVEIA
Dr Elizabeth de Gouveia obtained her medical degree from the University of Cape Town in 1998 (cum laude).
Having been stationed in the Northern Province for two years, she gained valuable experience at Elim Hospital.
Dr. de Gouveia qualified as a specialist in Obstetrics and Gynecology through the University of Pretoria in 2006. Her special interest is in laparoscopic and vaginal prolapse surgery.
When it comes to pregnancy and birth, Dr. de Gouveia supports the informed choices of her patients. Whether you choose a natural, unmedicated birth, or require medical intervention, you can expect Dr. de Gouveia to be kind, informative, and non-judgmental. Her experience includes supporting VBAC (vaginal birth after Cesarean section) births.
As a wife and proud mom of three, she genuinely cares about and understands the needs of her patients. When she’s not taking care of women’s health and helping deliver babies, you can find her making mosaic art, reading, knitting, and scuba diving.
Together as a team, we strive to make our practice a welcoming and supportive environment for our patients.
