Six children, a busy GP practice and ongoing TV commitments might be more than enough to slow most people down, but not Dr Ginni Mansberg, host of Foxtel's Embarrassing Bodies Down Under, Channel 7's Resident GP on Sunrise and The Morning Show and one of Australia's most trusted Health and Wellness expert.
A well respected GP for more than 20 years and currently working in general practice in Sydney’s San Souci, Ginni is a specialist in the areas of parenting, women’s, children’s and general health, seeing everyone from newborns through to their great grandparents.
She is a proud ambassador for Barnardos’ Mother of the Year, sits on the Advisory Board of the Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation and is a supervisor in the Medical facility at the University of Notre Dame.
Having completed a Graduate Diploma of Journalism at UTS, she is also an accomplished writer and has worked extensively as a medical journalist, contributing regular feature articles and columns in The Medical Observer, Women’s Health, Practical Parenting, That’s Life! and Australian Doctor.
She has three books under her belt including her best seller, ‘Why am I so Tired?’ and is a recognised speaker, sought after as an authority on everything from sleep to beating stress, wellness, life balance and a range of general health and medical related topics, each delivered with her customary sense of humour.
She is refreshingly real and honest, knowledgeable and engaging, modern and upfront in her thinking. Ginni says being a GP and sharing in the lives of her patients keeps her grounded and it’s her warmth, together with her sane and practical advice and her ability to tackle the sometimes difficult health questions head on, that make her popular with patients and viewers alike.
Describing her family as her greatest achievement, Ginni is also a wife and mum in a blended family of eight, a role that she describes as giving her the inspiration, joy and no doubt endless stories to share with everyday Australians.
