“I was a fourth year medical student when I was first introduced to maternal fetal medicine.
I learnt that pregnancy scans offered a unique insight into how the baby was developing at each stage of pregnancy and provided an
opportunity to intervene when things were not going as expected in high risk pregnancies.
I saw the challenges that some expectant parents experienced during their pregnancy journey and also the joy of bonding
between expectant parents when seeing their unborn babies.
Today I remain committed and passionate about providing exceptional informed and compassionate care to expectant parents
and their unborn babies, always being sensitive and respectful of their wishes.”
