Obstetrics Q & A

What is preconception counseling or genetic testing?

Are you thinking of having a baby? Dr. Fan can help you with preconception counseling and identify whether you’re at high risk of having a baby with congenital anomalies so that you can make informed reproductive decisions. She can do it before you’re pregnant or at an early prenatal stage.

Preconception counseling ensures a healthy baby and healthy mother and includes starting folic acid supplementation three months before conception. Recent advances in genetic testing have made it possible to test for many congenital and chromosomal anomalies, and Dr. Fan’s practice offers a wide range of genetic tests to suit the needs of every patient.

What is tubal pregnancy?

A tubal pregnancy is also called “ectopic pregnancy.” In a tubal pregnancy, the fertilized egg is unable to make it to the uterine cavity but gets implanted into the fallopian tube or the ovary itself. Common symptoms include:

  • Missed period
  • Vaginal spotting
  • Dizziness or fainting attack
  • Back pain

What is high-risk obstetrics?

Dr. Fan’s expertise includes managing low- and high-risk pregnancies. High-risk obstetrics includes women with a history of medical problems, previous miscarriages, or currently have complications like:

  • Preeclampsia
  • Gestational diabetes
  • Morbidly adherent placenta
  • Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR)

Can I get a picture of my baby before it is born?

One of the magical moments for couples is to hear and see their baby before it’s born. This is possible because of recent advances in ultrasound imaging technology.

Using state-of-the-art technology, Dr. Fan performs the ultrasound and will guide you about healthy fetal development, you can hear your baby’s heartbeats and look at the finest anatomical detail. The picture is captured and kept as a record.

Can I have a natural birth?

There is no one-size-fits-all method of conducting labor. When you’re in labor, Dr. Fan will do a detailed medical and obstetrical examination and make a recommendation for the type of birth best for the optimum outcome.

It’s a shared and informed decision made after understanding all the pros and cons.

Can my baby get circumcised in the clinic?

Circumcision of your male baby is a cultural, religious, and personal choice that some parents make. It also reduces the risks of recurrent UTI in childhood.

Dr. Fan offers in-office circumcision services at birth or later using the most advanced technology, along with excellent post-operative care.
