I count myself as truly fortunate to have a challenging career I enjoy. As a fertility specialist, obstetrician & gynaecologist, my work often involves planning fertility treatment, laparoscopic surgery, and delivering babies. It is really fulfilling to embark on the fertility journey with my patients and help bring new life into the world.
It is indeed extremely rewarding to be able to help couples achieve the happiness that I have experienced with my own family. Outside of work, I spend most of my free time with the family, planning activities, birthday parties, and where to travel to for the next holiday together. I have been blessed with three adorable children. This coming year, my daughters will be 12 and 10 years old, while my son will be 5 years. As most parents would attest to, it is great fun to watch them interact and play with each other- unless they get into a fight! It is also hugely gratifying to watch each child grow more mature and independent each day, developing their own thoughts and personalities.
Motherhood is something I definitely recommend and if possible, young couples should start planning for a family as soon as they are ready! What little time I have left after work and family, is then spent at random on the piano, shopping, swimming and learning to play golf. As women of this modern age and society, we are expected to fulfil many roles- as career women, wives, and mothers etc. It is indeed challenging but also at the same time, a privilege.
Now with my new role in the AWDS, I hope to be able to make further contributions in support of advocating for womens’ health issues and women at work in the medical field.
