Hospital gynaecologists: 

How to Choose Your Ob-gyn or Gynaecologist

Choosing your ob-gyn and gynaecologist is one of the key starting steps to your pregnancy. While there are many professional doctors in Singapore, you will seek to find someone whose experience suits your health and pregnancy profile. Plus, you will also want someone with whom you can feel comfortable. Here are some pointers on how to find your ob-gyn and gynaecologist.

Recommendations from friends and family: Ask your trusted family and friends about their first-hand experience with their own gynaecologists, and whether they would recommend their doctor. 

Distance from your home/office: Traveling long distance can be a hassle when you are pregnant, and so you may want to pick a doctor whose clinic is nearer to your work or home. 

Preference for maternity hospital: Do you have a preference on which hospital you would like to give birth at? If so, you will pick from the list of gynaecologists at that hospital. Here is our guide to the best maternity hospitals in Singapore. 

Do you have a preference for female or male gynaecologist? Some expectant mothers or dads-to-be have a preference for female or male gynaecologist. If so, that will make an influence your decision. While most gender impressions are based on stereotypes (every doctor is different after all), some ladies feel more comfortable with lady doctors as they are of the same gender.  

Gynae expertise: Depending on your pregnancy and health profile, you will want to seek a doctor with the expertise that you need. If you are facing fertility issues, you will want to seek a doctor that can help you. Or if face risk of a higher-risk pregnancy or have a history of miscarriages, be sure to seek someone with that relevant experience. Do consider going to KKH OB-GYN department if you face a high-risk pregnancy. The division chairman is Dr. Tan Hak Koon himself, a reputable obstetrician and gynaecologist known for handling critical pregnancies and deliveries.

General reviews from online mummy community: Many mummies post and discuss their opinions online, and you can look for reviews or discussion threads to find out which gynaecologist 

Consultation charges/budget: A consultation can vary from $60 – $300 per visit, depending on whether you are a public or private patient. You may want to ring up the clinic or hospital to ask about consultation charges prior to going.  

Your comfort level with the gynaecologist (after your first consultation): Communicating your health and pregnancy issues can be quite personal, and you would like to seek someone with who you feel a good comfort level. 

I hope our article on the popular gynaecologist and ob-gyns in Singapore has helped you! If you found this useful, please do share it with your family and friends who may need it too!
