innate superpower to know what to do when you place
them on the mother’s chest. They will instinctively look for
the breast. Feeling whole is also your superpower. My

already know innately.”

DONA Certified Birth & Postpartum Doula Trainer (2006); Childbirth Educator; Approved Spinning Babies Trainer (2015); Student Midwife
I am very blessed to have found my calling as a Doula for (expectant) parents and serve my local community as well as travel around the world as a Trainer to teach healthcare professionals and birth workers. My vision is to leave a legacy for women and their families by shifting the paradigm of birth, empowering women and their families to have the birth she desires and supporting them through early parenthood. I am currently working towards opening Singapore’s first Birth Centre whilst studying as a student midwife and working on a global outreach to improve maternity care. When not found at A Company For Women (www.acompanyforwomen.com.sg) or Four Trimesters Birth Sanctuary, you will find me indulging my time with my family and our house full of pets.

Truth to be told, I love the oxytocin rush of my life’s calling!
Experience: Low risk vaginal births (with and without pain relief and medical interventions; water births; home births); High risk vaginal births (VBAC & VBA2C; vaginal breech births; twins); and cesarean sections.

Ginny taught us in the classes on how to assess the doctors given the high rate of c-section delivery in singapore. I asked a lot of questions to my first gynae and found out that he does pretty much 100% guaranteed episiotomies to first time moms, and continuous monitoring during the entire labor which horrified me!! I immediately changed doctors when i found out!
Thanks to the tips i got from Four trimesters classes 😉
During the classes we also talked about postpartum depression, which I experienced and openly talked to my friends about. First month was rough (hormonal changes, sleepless nights, breastfeeding), but after my baby turned one month old, i made sure i had my “me time” - whether i do yoga/pilates classes, gym, walk around the block, getting fresh air and have time away is really important for mommy’s sanity. I feel so blessed to have a supportive husband who can help me take care of our baby before he goes to work.
Another important tip i got from the classes is about breastfeeding. I had to reread my notes from the classes to remember all the tips and tricks from Ginny which i applied to my newborn. She latched perfectly well and gained 2kg in the first 5 weeks! 😉 proud mommy!
My baby girl is now 8 week old, and we are currently in phuket enjoying our amazing holiday!!!
It all started just before midnight on 04 Aug (it was the last episode of Prison Break; as if my baby knows that I love that show! : p). I started to get 'gentle' surges but couldn't fall back to sleep. We went to NUH at around 7am the next morning. I remembered Ginny saying that we should proceed to the hospital if we feel it is safer to do so.
After about 20 hours of labour, our beautiful daughter was born in squatting position at 6.08pm. My hubby was supportive throughout the labour and delivery and I am thankful for that. It was a wonderful experience that I managed to deliver without any drugs.
A big thanks to Ginny for empowering us to have the birth that we will remember. Thank you for recommending Dr Chong. He is an excellent doctor! We are really aiming for a water birth with him for our next child. 🙂
To the mothers who have given birth, congrats to you! And to all the mothers-to-be, jia you!
Thrilled to be first-time parents,

Ginny provides valuable hands on practical experience
"My husband & I totally enjoyed Ginny's prenatal classes, we found them very helpful to us as first time parents. We particularly enjoyed Ginny's relaxed, no nonsense, friendly approach to learning. Her classes allow for both the husband and wife to learn, have fun and interact within a like minded group.At the same time Ginny kept her classes focused allowing us to gain in-depth knowledge on parenting. Ginny also provides valuable hands on practical experience post birth allowing the overwhelmed mother to gain confidence, successfully breastfeed and have a general understanding of parenting. We believe that Ginny goes above and beyond the norm and we have no hesitation in recommending Ginny".
skimming through this post, i was very aware that my experience learning to breastfeed -- with short nipples and a child with a double tongue tie and allergies to gluten, egg, nuts, seeds and dairy -- was not a 'sob story' by any stretch. and that is thanks to you and to dr. belinda. wholly.
you identified the issues with our latch, helped me trouble shoot the discomfort, helped me teach van to stretch her tongue, and worked with my doctor. and i have really positive feelings about the eight crazy months it took van to get her weight up, her sleep sorted and her little personality blossoming.
she's almost 14 months, and we are still breastfeeding twice a day.
so THANK YOU. i seriously can't wait to do it again. the birth, the baby crazy, all of it.
