Dr Carolyn Loh

About Carolyn

Dr Carolyn Loh is a General Practitioner with over 20 years experience running her own General Practice. She enjoys regular Pilates workouts and has a personal interest in Women’s Wellness. In her Medical Practice, she believes in educating and empowering her patients in taking control of their own health and wellness.

Married to Dr Lai Fon-Min, they have 2 adult sons. They share the same philosophy in empowering women and offering real choices. Together, they offer the option of the Antenatal Shared Care Package.

Antenatal Shared Care

Antenatal Shared Care is designed for women with LOW RISK pregnancies where your Obstetrician is in-charge of your overall care, and you will see the General Practitioner for your antenatal care in-between your scheduled appointments with your Obstetrician.

  • Obstetrician Visits: First Consultation (for the current pregnancy) and 12, 20, 32, 36, 37, 39 and 40 weeks and after.
  • General Practitioner Visits: 16, 24, 28, 34 and 38 weeks.
  • Should there be an increase in risk at any point during the pregnancy, you will need to switch from the Shared Care Package to the Obstetrician Antenatal Package.

Belly mapping and painting

Belly Mapping is a three-step process for parents to learn how to identify baby’s position in the final months of pregnancy.

Together with Belly Painting, this session allows parents to connect and bond with their unborn baby in a unique and tangible way.

A session is 90 minutes in length.

Four Trimesters Antenatal Group Classes

Four Trimesters Antenatal Classes enable parents to have an easy, short, relaxed and comfortable birth, gently welcoming their baby into the world.  In this class, you will learn powerful HypnoBirthing techniques for relaxation and for preparing the muscles in the body for birth.  You will feel empowered to create a positive mindset for the pregnancy, labor, birth, and parenting. The class also teaches you Spinning Babies techniques to work with your body by understanding the functions of your hormones and by utilizing relaxation tools and techniques that work with your body.
At Four Trimesters, we teach you how to labor smart and not labor hard.  Whether you choose to have a drug-free birth, a birth with drugs, or a cesarean – our antenatal classes make the process so much easier.

Four Trimesters Birth & Postpartum Doula Services

The word Doula comes from the Greek meaning “in service”. A Doula is a trained Professional Labor Assistant who understands the emotional and physical needs of a woman in labor, and provides continuous support and care for the parents prenatally, throughout labor and birth and early postpartum.

The birth doula is the modern day link in the tradition of women helping women in birth. They enhance the birth experience through information, empathy, and physical assistance. Parents that have used doulas say they are an invaluable part of the birth team.

Women supported by a doula during labor have been shown to have:

  • 50% reduction of cesarean rate
  • 25% shorter labor
  • 60% reduction in epidural requests
  • 30% reduction in analgesia use
  • 40% reduction in forceps delivery

Source: Mothering the Mother: How a Doula can help you have a shorter, easier and healthier birth by Marshall H. Klaus (Perseus Press, 1993).

The Four Trimesters team of Doulas work seamlessly with Dr. Lai, especially for a homebirth. You get the benefits of the expertise of the team as a whole – Doula care, Chiropractic, Birth Photography – as well as a whole array of services and events to nurture the continuum of your journey from conception to parenting.

You can find out more here.

A Doula believes in “mothering the mother” – enabling a woman to have a much more satisfying, positive and empowered time before, during and after birth, and thus allowing a baby to have a better start in life
