'Effect of Neglect on Child Development' by Dr Mantho Kgosiemang

'Effect of Neglect on Child Development' by Dr Mantho Kgosiemang


Dr Mantho Kgosiemang completed her medical degree at University of Newcastle where she started her medical career before moving to Darwin in 2008 with her two young children and husband. After working at Royal Darwin Hospital for 2 years, she moved interstate temporarily to fulfil her training requirements. 

The majority of her Paediatric Speciality training was at The Children’s Hospital at Brisbane. She has also worked at Mater Mothers Hospital and Royal Brisbane Women’s Hospital where she completed her Neonatal/Perinatal Speciality.

As a Neonatologist, she has special interest in child development. She is especially interested to see babies born preterm achieve their best potential in all developmental domains.

Dr Kgosiemang is passionate about parent/child education and empowerment. She believes that partnership with parent’s yields best outcomes for her patients who are often too young to speak for themselves. Throughout her practice, she has seen great results for her patients when parents are better informed.

Dr Kgosiemang and her family moved back to Darwin at the start of 2015 and joined the great team at Darwin Paediatrics as a Specialist Neonatologist. She calls Darwin home.
