    Dr Low was supper helpful and supportive during our pregnancy journey, and she’s always there for us to listen to and to give thoughtful and of course professional advice. Her excellent knowledge and the way she showed her care made us feel very secure, and we wouldn’t have such a peace of mind without Dr Low holding our hands tightly and walked us all the way from day one until our little baby’s born. We would highly recommend Dr Low to anyone, who wants not only a highly professional and knowledgeable doctor but also a caring and warm person to rely on during their pregnancy.

    Explanation (5/5)
    Our experience with Dr Shan Low was perfect. From our first appointment she made us feel calm and safe. Every appointment throughout our pregnancy she made us feel the same way, which for first time parents is completely invaluable. We always felt we had her full attention and no appointment was ever rushed. We had time to ask all the many questions we had and Dr Low took the time to answer them so we always left feeling at ease. Dr Low was unbelievable with communication both in and out of our in person appointments. We are still not quite sure how sure how she has time for everything! Dr Low is a genuinely kind person and amazing doctor. We feel very lucky to have had her as our doctor (and friend!) throughout this pregnancy and to welcome our son Ludo into the world with us. We could not recommend her highly enough.

    We couldn’t be happier with our experience with Dr Low. She consistently demonstrated great knowledge and warmth, and we quickly developed a lot of trust in our relationship with her. Without doubt, we would recommend her, and without doubt we will seek her consultation again if we are blessed enough to have a second child.

    Every step of my care with Dr. Low, from prenatal to postnatal has been incredible. Dr. Low delivered my daughter and the birth experience was nothing short of magical. She helped make my labour not only safe and comfortable but truly special. She created a wonderful relationship with both me and my husband and is consistently responsive to anything that comes up. I felt so cared for both medically and emotionally and we are very grateful to Dr. Low for her expertise and kindness
