After completing her specialisation in Dublin she continued as 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.
Dr. Skinner was instrumental is 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.
