Dr. Amber Kennedy: Fertility Specialist, OBGYN | Newlife IVF

Dr Amber Kennedy


Fertility Specialist


Amber completed her specialist training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at The Mercy Hospital for Women (MHW) in Heidelberg, Melbourne, and holds a Masters in Reproductive Medicine from the University of New South Wales. She undertook a fellowship in Reproductive Biology at the MHW and was the Honorary Reproductive Services fellow at the Royal Women’s Hospital (RWH) for two years, before taking up her current public appointments at the MHW in obstetrics and gynaecology, and at the RHW, as part of The Women’s endocrine and metabolic service. Amber has also completed a PhD research degree, examining the schooling outcomes of IVF children.

Amber’s key areas of interest as a fertility specialist include subfertility, reproductive endocrinology (including PCOS), and endometrial hyperplasia. Her dedication to clinical excellence is supported by her commitment to scientific research. She is currently undertaking a PhD exploring the long-term outcomes of IVF, an area which she is incredibly passionate about: “IVF technology has revolutionised the treatment of subfertility over the past 3 decades and now constitutes 5% of Australian births, so it is vital that we understand the implications of IVF and other assisted reproductive techniques, to better inform future patient care and treatment practices.”

Amber is regarded by her patients for her calm and friendly approach, and her ability to explain complex information in a way that everyone can understand. Amber believes her initial interest in reproductive medicine stemmed from witnessing the births of her two younger siblings, and that this is probably why she now enjoys being part of a family’s fertility and pregnancy journey so much.

Known for her love of colourful shoes and bright earrings, Amber brings a warmth and vibrancy to the clinic that we’re all grateful for, particularly on a rainy day. When she’s not caring for her two young boys, Amber can be found unwinding on the sofa watching Netflix (after much discussion about which show to watch!) and indulging in her husband’s delicious vegetarian cooking. Her expertise in reproductive medicine even comes in handy when she’s on mummy duty – after the birth of her second child, her toddler enquired: “How do you get a baby in your tummy?!”, to which she responded: “There are more ways than one, sweetheart…”
