    I couldn’t have chosen anyone better than the amazing Dr. Shan. Out of so many consultants I am truly grateful to have Dr. Shan as my consultant throughout my second pregnancy at The Portland - she is always so calm and reassuring which made me feel comfortable and at ease. During the actual delivery she was there for me together with the midwife and whenever I felt nervous she would always explain the situation clearly, making me feel assured. I’d highly recommend Dr. Shan for any pregnancy or gynecological related matters. I first went to Dr Shan for a bladder infection and found a great connection with her. When I found out I was pregnant I didn’t think twice and asked her to be my consultant. Thank you Dr. Shan for a wonderful birthing experience!

    Miscarriage
    A doctor needs to be able to see beyond the tears and grief, they need to be able to listen and sense what it is wrong. Often we are on a journey, where we know something isn’t right, but do not have the right words to express ourself. Dr Low is amazing, considerate and a intellectual in her field. I would like to thank Dr for listening to me, finding out what was wrong and having a plan to move forward.

    C-Section (Caesarean Section)
    We originally planned for an elective caesarean section for our baby with Miss Low. She was very helpful and responsive in answering our questions during initial appointments. Then, our baby decided to come early. Miss Low advised and arranged for an emergency caesarean section. Everything were arranged swiftly in short notice. It was greatful to have Miss Low assistance in delivering our baby.

    After worrying bleeding during pregnancy, I was keen for a second opinion and came across these reviews for Dr Shan Low. She quickly arranged an appointment for the following day and provided us with friendly and helpful advice. After her investigations she was able to provide us with a clear reason which wasnt detrimental to the pregnancy and a plan of action that took the weight off our shoulders. Thank you so much Dr Shan Low.
