About NEOG

North Eastern Obstetrics and Gynaecology is a specialist practice of four obstetricians and gynaecologists – Dr Carol Vance, Dr Charlotte Elder, Dr Carolin Poon and Dr Samantha (Sam) Mooney. We provide specialist obstetric and gynaecology care for patients at the Mercy Hospital for Women in Heidelberg. Our doctors are supported by kind and expert clerical staff.


Each specialist brings a unique set of skills to the practice to ensure that our patients are cared for with experience and thoroughness.

Two of our doctors - Charlotte Elder and Sam Mooney - will be taking parental leave from late August 2020.

Charlotte will be taking time off from clinical practice until late March 2021. During this time, we are pleased to welcome Dr Julia Francis to our group. Julia will continue to provide care for Charlotte’s obstetric patients and will continue to book patients who wish to have Charlotte as their obstetrician when she returns from maternity leave.

Sam will be taking time off from clinical practice until late January 2021. Her colleagues, Carol Vance and Carolin Poon, will be covering her gynaecology patients during this time. Sam will be welcoming obstetric bookings from January 2021.

We wish Charlotte and Sam all the best with their expanding families!
