About Dr Oscar Serrallach
Dr Oscar Serrallach MBChB FRACGP is a dedicated practitioner in Maternal Care. After completing his training at Auckland Medical School, he explored various specialist areas, including emergency medicine, psychiatry, Aboriginal men’s health, addiction medicine and nutritional medicine. Oscar’s studies in Functional Medicine – looking at the root cause of disease - coincided with the early years of starting a family. Witnessing the struggles of his partner, as well as many other Mothers through his clinical work, he recognised a gap in medical research. So he started to consider the unique science of pregnancy, birth and postnatal recovery.
