Dr Lokugamage works as a consultant obstetrician & gynaecologist/honorary senior lecturer at the Whittington Hospital, London, UK, as well as the Hospital of St johns and St Elizabeth in St John’s Wood, London. Her main clinical interests lie in medical gynaecology and general obstetrics. The long term behavioural and emotional consequences of how we are born and nurtured are of particular interest to her. Dr Lokugamage has set up a maternity acupuncture service within the NHS. She also has a keen interest in improving rates of natural birth and had a homebirth herself in 2008. Her experience of homebirth led to her writing a book called The Heart in the Womb which will be published in spring 2011.
She is a strong supporter of integrated medicine, where conventional obstetrics & gynaecology is merged with complementary medicine. Integrated medicine views patients as whole people with minds and spirits as well as bodies and includes these dimensions into diagnosis and treatment. It also involves patients and doctors working to maintain health by paying attention to lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, quality of rest. She is a registered homeopath and practices acupuncture.
