“During my pregnancy, Dr Tan strongly encouraged staying active to lower the risk of gestational diabetes. Fearing needles, I took his advice seriously from week 24 and started swimming regularly for an hour, 2-3 times a week, up until I delivered in week 38.
Not only did I manage to keep away from needles during pregnancy, the exercises gave me a higher pain tolerance and stamina that allowed me to experience natural delivery without any assisted pain management.
I’m really thankful to Dr Tan for his constant reminders and encouragement throughout this journey to ensure I have a higher chance of experiencing the au-naturel delivery I had been aiming for."
