Lila’s approach acknowledges your individuality and unique personality and is tailored to meet your needs and expectations. Lila offers safe, contemporary, evidence-based medical care in a non-judgemental and non-clinical environment.

Dr. Ilana Johnson

Ilana Johnson obtained her MBChB from the University of Cape Town in 2007. It was during her third year Obstetrics rotation that she first realised her passion for women’s health. She completed her internship in Durban before returning to Cape Town in pursuit of her career in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. She’s worked at Mowbray Maternity Hospital and Tygerberg Hospital where she completed her training and became a Fellow of the College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

Ilana cares deeply about all aspects relating to women’s health and well-being. Besides for recently giving birth to a baby son this year, Ilana is also a mother to a strong-willed toddler and can fully appreciate the challenges of the pregnancy and delivery journey and so treats her patients with the utmost empathy and meticulous care.

Dr. Lindi Murray

Lindi Murray obtained her MBBCh from the University of the Witwatersrand in 2004. She worked at Mowbray Maternity Hospital before specialising in Obstetrics and Gynaecology through the University of Cape Town in 2008, rotating through Groote Schuur Hospital, Mowbray Maternity Hospital, GF Jooste and New Somerset Hospital. She became a Fellow of the College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in 2012 winning the Daubenton Medal for outstanding results in her final examinations.

At this time she also completed her Masters in Medicine, winning the best dissertation award.

Lindi worked at Tygerberg Hospital for 5 years as a specialist, with
extensive involvement in high-risk obstetrics, labour ward
management, strategies to prevent adverse outcome in obstetrics
as well as student teaching and supervising postgraduate research.

Dr. Lindi Murray and Dr. Ilana Johnson are both mothers to young children and understand the challenges which a busy lifestyle presents. For this reason we make your every visit as stress-free as possible: we treat our time together as precious, and your need for honest and up-to-date information with respect.
