Having Healthy Babies

Dr Ann Tan’s greatest pleasure is to “help my patients achieve their dream of having healthy babies”

Dr Ann Tan is the first Singaporean to hold the Diploma of Fetal Medicine from the Fetal Medicine Foundation, an international body that accredits Fetal Maternal Medicine specialists. The former Chief of Fetal Maternal Medicine in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology at the Singapore General Hospital is a dedicated gynaecologist and obstetrician, with a keen interest in prenatal diagnosis and care of both mother and fetus.
A devoted mother of three and dance enthusiast, she believes in public education, contributing regularly to lifestyle and motherhood periodicals and presenting papers at medical forums and congresses.

1   Your favourite thing about your speciality
    The ability to bring joy through the discovery of new life and seeing it through to the delivery of a healthy and wanted child.
 
2   Three words your patients have used to describe you
    Energetic, passionate, professional.
 
3   Work motto
    I always try to do my best for my patients.
 
4   The next big thing in your field
    Helping all mothers, particularly older women, achieve healthier pregnancies by using their own eggs that were saved when they were younger. Men can also use sperms in the same manner.
 
5   Strangest old wives’ tale about health you’ve heard from patients
    When babies have hair, mothers get heartburn.
 
6   Most frequently encountered female problem
    Abnormal menstrual cycles due to hormonal upsets or abnormal vaginal discharge due to infections.
 
7   A problem most women regret not consulting you earlier
    Choosing not to determine their fertility potential earlier when their menses start becoming more irregular and lighter. Ignorance is not bliss. Just get an Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) done.
 
8   Most frequently dispensed advice for women/couples who can’t get pregnant
    Try again, but only if both partners are in it together — both have to pull their weight to ensure best-quality eggs and sperms.
