1 in 3 women worldwide will have an abortion in their lifetime. This in-depth guide answers all the most common questions about getting an abortion in Singapore.
I hope to help dispel some of the myths surrounding abortions in Singapore by addressing the concerns that women raise at my clinic.
Let me first begin with a caveat that this post is solely based on the observations of my gynaecologist colleagues, and my own pregnancy/birthing experiences as a mummy of 3. The timespan of this was over 17 years, during the time I was first practising as a junior doctor, then as a gynaecologist consultant in Singapore.
At least 30 colleagues of mine have had babies over this time period, and for some, certainly more than once or twice.
Most of obstetrics (labour and delivery) is usually uneventful, but when a problem arises, things can go downhill in the blink of an eye.
The role of your attending obstetrician and midwives is to react quickly in these situations to ensure the safety of you and your baby.
Here are my top tips for your pregnancy journey and giving birth, based on my personal experience helping mummies deliver babies in Singapore over the last 13 years!
