Dr Gabrielle Macaulay, MBBS

Dr Gabi is passionate about creating a safe space for women to access individualised, integrity based healthcare.

In particular she is on a mission to save black women’s wombs, by addressing the root causes of gynaecology disease in black women that may result in racial inequalities and ethnic disparities in their healthcare experiences and outcomes.

She teaches medical students, clinicians and women on this specialised topic, in addition to sharing public health information on TV and radio.

Her journey started at Imperial College London where she obtained her MBBS and First Class Honours BSc in Endocrinology and Diabetes. She completed her family medicine residency at the Riverside Vocational Training Scheme which was based at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, UK and completed an elective in Endocrinology and Diabetes at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, USA.

Additional qualifications include diplomas from The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and The Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Medicine. She has undergone further training with the College of Naturopathic Medicine (skin nutrition and natural skincare) in addition to Functional Hormone Replacement training with the American LP3 Network.

If you have a womb, the chemicals in relaxers can cause growths known as fibroids - and these can trigger health issues that range from the uncomfortable to the serious.
