Profile

Dr Samantha Yeo is a Member of the Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists, UK (MRCOG) and a Fellow of the Academy of Medicine, Singapore (FAMS). She graduated from the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, NUS, obtained her Master of Medicine (MMed O&G), and thereafter her specialist accreditation from the Singapore Medical Council.

As an Obstetrician & Gynaecologist, Dr Yeo’s interests lie in preconception health, fertility education and holistic pregnancy care. She is a team member of the Prime Minister Officer (PMO) funded multicentre FertStart (The Effect of Fertility Health Awareness Strategies on Fertility Knowledge and Childbearing in Young Married Couples) project. Surgically, Dr Yeo is an accredited laparoscopic surgeon, with expertise in minimally invasive fertility preserving surgery, including keyhole, hysteroscopic and complex pelvic surgery. Over the course of her career, Dr Yeo has delivered thousands of babies, and is well versed in instrumental and complicated caesarean deliveries. She has also published and presented her research on pregnancy and complicated surgeries at international platforms- namely, conferences in Paris, London, Australia, and Taiwan. She is currently organizing a collaborative teaching symposium on reducing surgical wound complications and improving scar aesthetics.

Dr Yeo has been the clinical lead for Sengkang General Hospital’s satellite Obstetrics & Gynaecology department since 2020, and was key in safely re-establishing obstetrics care in Sengkang following the Covid-19 circuit breaker.

Dr Yeo strongly believes in empowered women’s health, and is a regular panelist and speaker at multidisciplinary public forums. Dr Yeo co-founded the NewMums #SgUnited support group with Member of Parliament Ms Tin Pei Lin, which delivered free medical advice from volunteer healthcare professionals to new mothers during the Covid-19 pandemic. Dr Yeo is also passionate about breastfeeding awareness and research, and advocates for single mothers, teenage mothers, and postnatal mental wellness.

Dr Yeo remains active in pre- and post-graduate medical education, as a lecturer and examiner at Lee Kong Chian (LKC) School of Medicine, and a physician faculty member of the Singhealth Obstetrics & Gynaecology Residency Programme. She is clinical mentor to medical students from all three medical schools in Singapore. She was previously the secretary of the Singhealth Resident’s Committee from 2013 – 2015.

As a mother of two, Dr Yeo truly appreciates the trials and tribulations of pregnancy and parenthood. She strives to make every patient’s journey enjoyable, during the reproductive years and beyond.
