"A mother's joy begins when new life is stirring inside...when a tiny heartbeat is heard for the very first time, and a playful kick reminds her that she is never alone."
Pregnancy is an exciting and joyful journey. However, it can occasionally be complicated by certain medical conditions. Dr Koh aims to manage each pregnancy as normal as possible, but remains vigilant to any potential complications. This is to ensure that both the mother and baby are safe in all stages of the pregnancy.
Dr Koh is compassionate to providing the best possible care and is known for his high level of dedication and commitment to his patients. As such, he limits the number of patients he delivers each month. His attention to detail and desire to accommodate every individual’s wishes, while ensuring safety of mother and baby, will fill you and your family with confidence and assurance throughout this wonderful journey.
Dr Koh has delivery rights at the Mater Hospital, North Shore Private Hospital, Prince of Wales Private Hospital, St George Private Hospital and Hurstville Private Hospital.
