    John Tee.. heard many good things about him but he's super bizi so if you don't have questions for him, the appt is usually very chop chop.

    which LC did you check with? just curious.

    as for the tearing/pulling sensation from ur c-section scar, I'd imagine its quite normal as you're making it expand as the baby grows. Scar tissue isn't as flexible as regular skin so you'll definitely feel the stretch. Trying lotioning it more often.

    with regards to bfg while preggy. Frankly speaking, as long as you're allowed to make love, you can breastfeed. That's the general rule of thumb. So you don't really need to see a gynae with that issue. And to be honest, most uninformed gynaes would ask you to wean (because of kiasu/kiasi reasons). again, I've bfd through two pregnancies and babies and me were fine.

    The first gynae I told encouraged me to stop. I didn't. The 2nd gynae just smiled and said "that's good".

    My gynae is A/pro Han How Chuan. He is very responsible and caring gyne. I was consider a high risk patient due to incompetence cervix. When i was pregnant with my no.2, i was still breastfeeding and he ask me when i wanted to stop as i am not suitable to breastfeed due to my condition. My cervix is weak and might dilate anytime and a cerclage is needed to be done at my 12wks gestation to prolong my pregnancy. He took very care of me and will reply me quite promtly by email when i have problem with my pregnancy. He will also call me back after his clinic ended when i page him for any emergency.

    JOhn Tee Chee Seng is patient, experienced, gentle, assuring and SUPER DUPER FATHERLY~~~

    He will not rush u in any appointment, and even if u ask silly questions he will still answer u

    Only bad thing is waiting hours are long and if he has last minute urgent deliveries u will need to wait for him coz he will be called for those complicated cases where he needs to help out coz of his position.

    hi crystalpheonix,

    I have the same sentiment as nadyrahh about janice.
    she don't smile, is unfriendly and cold..which are not qualities you look for in a gynae. I never felt comfortable with her but since she's with you for a different reason, I guess it does not matter how she is.

    I am thinking of changing my gynae now... :(

    my doc was Dr Jasmine Mohd for both. Would strongly recommend her cos she was understanding of the concerns we had esp with the second pregnancy when baby wasn't growing very well in 3rd tri. she arranged to see us every other day and then subsequently every day (cos i didn't want to be warded) and even stayed late at the evening clinics just to wait for my CTG reports. we called her just before we left for the hospital and she was there within minutes of me in the triage at delivery suite.

    re breastfeeding during pregnancy, she was supportive of it but was monitoring my weight gain (or rather, lack of it) closely and also baby's growth. she never once suggested i should give it up since baby was growing well in the first 2 trimesters

    just wondering how that lactation consultant decided on that list of docs.. hmmm...

    Hi CrystalPheonix,
    I had a bad experience when Dr Janice Chin attended to me. I was about 4-5 weeks pregnant and spotting. I went down to KKH emergency and she just said it's normal at that stage. What's worst is she said there is no need for MC and I can still work. I insisted MC, and true enough the next week, I totally collapsed and had to see an appointed gynae at TPS and given hormone pills and jab to stabalised my condition!
    I did complain about her to my then appointed gynae but my gynae said she is a nice person?!?!?! (Maybe she is only nice to her senior docs) I cannot comment but my experince with her is totally off.

    Hi mummies who are with KKH,
    Can you recommend me a doctor who is good at c-sect?
    Good with stitches, clear out as much locha so that I won't be bleeding as much after..., really takes good care of patients.
