Hi there, I’m Dr Edna Lekgabe and I’m a perinatal and reproductive psychiatrist.


Please note that I am not a psychiatric emergency service and I do not provide afterhours support.

If these services are required, I can discuss these details with you during your consultation session. If I am unavailable, your GP (or your specialist) can also provide you with details for support.


If You Are In Crisis

If you are feeling suicidal or are in crisis, please seek immediate help by calling 000 or presenting to your nearest hospital emergency department.
