Get to know Dr Hunter
Dr Tamara Hunter completed her Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery with Honours in 2003, after having completed a Bachelor of Exercise Science in 1996 and a Bachelor of Science (Human Movement) in 1994.
From her first roles as an exercise physiologist and as a corporate health consultant, Tamara gained experience in the reality of women’s health. When she completed her qualification of Fellow of the Royal Australian & New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (FRANZCOG) and started working in the field, it led her to the next step: helping women to start a family when that was challenging.
The Certificate of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (CREI) qualification she completed in 2019 was an important addition.
As a CREI-accredited fertility specialist, Dr Hunter has been working relentlessly to expand her knowledge. She received 2 academic prizes for her work in preterm birth and in-vitro maturation. She joined Fertility Specialists of WA and nurtured the vision for an inclusive, evidence-based and holistic women’s health hub in Perth: Woom.
Dr Tamara Hunter is a mother of 2, an expert guest on Perth’s Channel Nine, and passionate about helping women with educational and reliable information, in an atmosphere of trust, understanding, and compassion.
"The benefits of a team approach"
It is so important to have a whole team supporting you through every step of your fertility journey
