Central Coast – Balancing business and motherhood

Dr Kelly Needham of Coastal Goddess has been named as a finalist for the AusMumpreneur Awards in the Health Business category.
Presented by The Women’s Business School, the awards celebrate and recognise Australian mums in business achieving outstanding success in areas such as business excellence, product development, customer service and digital innovation. They are designed to recognise the growing number of women who successfully balance motherhood and business in a way that suits their life and family.
Dr Kelly is a 45-year-old Dunghutti woman, who has been practicing medicine for 10 years.
She graduated in 2013 as a single mum, with nine-year-old twins.
“For a multitude of reasons, I didn’t complete specialty training, which made me feel like a failure,” Dr Kelly said.
“I was always striving for something more. To be able to be more, to do more.
“Cosmetic medicine was always an area of interest for me, so I went about studying and learning everything I
could in this field and I have found my true passion.”
When setting up Coastal Goddess in October 2021, a boutique women’s intimate health and cosmetic clinic, Dr Kelly had the vision of providing women a place of empowerment and choice, to improve their self-confidence.
It is a clinic not just for the skin and face, but to address the most intimate of women’s health issues.
