Following membership she took on the role of a Perinatal Research Fellow. During this time she developed and evaluated a number of ultrasound diagnostic tests both for fertility and for obstetrics. In 1999 she returned home to Barbados where she dedicated her time to expanding the medical care options to women on the island and within the Caribbean. Fertility and IVF then became the main focus of her interest with the opening of the islands first In Vitro Fertilisation unit in 2002.
Dr. Skinner was instrumental in developing Barbados Fertility Center from a start up unit with the goal of becoming one of the best in the world. From the beginning the mission was to create a center, which would maximise each and every couple’s chance of success by offering the latest technology and the best facilities and by ensuring attention to every detail. The centre was established to treat local, regional and international patients. Nearly 18 years on, it does just that – with almost 90 % of patients being nonresidents. BFC is the regions only JCI accredited IVF unit and joins a handful of medical facilities with JCI accreditation in the Caricom region. Our patients have come from all over the world and thousands of babies have been born worldwide from treatment at BFC.
Barbados Fertility Centre has a satellite unit in Trinidad since 2009 and in 2019 opened a second IVF facility in Cayman – Cayman Facility Centre. Dr Skinner was highly involved in the design and development of these units. She remains the Medical Director of Barbados and will continue on the board of management and advisor to Cayman Fertility Center.
