Dr Shiu Kumar
Shiu is originally from Fiji and has his medical degree from the University of South Pacific, Suva. He left Fiji in 2001 to pursue his training in Obstetrics and Gynecology in NZ. He trained at Auckland and North Shore. In 2008 he was appointed as a full time consultant to Waitakere Hospital. Shiu is married with two children and lives in Albany. Shiu has developed a unique understanding of LMC midwifery in his time at Waitakere where due to the absence of junior staff the demands on the specialists are greater.
Shiu is an expert surgeon and holds a surgical position at both North Shore and the new Elective Surgical Centre. For Shiu joining Beginnings means being able to contribute to maternity care on the North Shore. His priority is to always ensure a safe birthing experience for the women he looks after.
