Getting to Know Dr Lubna Bte Ahmad Harharah

Q: What is your experience as a doctor?

After graduating from the University College of London in 2001 with a Master’s degree in Prenatal Genetics and Fetal Medicine (an intensive 1-year programme on genetics, in vitro fertilisation, prenatal screening and fetal medicine), I went on to serve as a consultant at the Department of General Obstetrics and Gynaecology at KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital. There, I was the supporting head of the Women’s 24-hour Clinic until I left for private practice in 2010. Now, I practise at Parkway East Hospital and Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital.

Q: What kind of conditions do you treat?

I am adept at managing a wide range of conditions involving the female reproductive system. On top of the typical delivery and maternity issues, I also have a keen interest in pre-invasive cervical conditions such as the Pap smear test and cervical cancer.

Q: What kind of treatments do you perform specially?

Managing my patients’ pregnancies and the delivery of their baby is one of my main focuses. Apart from that, I am adept at colposcopy, where a special scope is used to better diagnose problems with the cervix and vagina. I also perform management of menopausal issues and focus on abnormal Pap smears and other conditions in the female genitals.

Q: How do you put your patients at ease for their delivery?

Some couples have a preference for certain birthing positions, but not all are suitable for our set-up. I do try to accede to their requests, like the time when a mother wanted to cut the umbilical cord of her baby after delivery. We managed to do it despite it being the first time I received such a request.

Q: What is your philosophy in treating your patients, especially in early detection?

The birthing process and pregnancy are a special occasion for couples and it is truly rewarding to be part of the happy moment. In O&G, a lot of treatments are preventive. Conditions like sexually transmitted infections or cervical cancer, for instance, can be treated to prevent the progression of the disease.
