About Dr Serene Lim
Dr Serene Lim is a Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at SWC Serene Fertility & Women’s Clinic.
Dr Lim has more than 15 years of experience in Obstetrics & Gynaecology. She obtained her basic medical degree from the National University of Singapore in 2006, following which she underwent specialist training at Singapore General Hospital (SGH), Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology. Her training in one of Asia’s leading tertiary academic medical centres established the foundation for her to provide personalised and holistic care to all patients, including those who require complex care. She was awarded the Best Advanced Specialty Trainee (AST) Award for being the top- performing specialist trainee in 2013. Dr Lim has been a member of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (London) since 2012.
Dr Lim draws on the latest in evidence- based medicine to deliver tailored care based on each patient’s individual needs. She manages a wide range of women’s health and fertility issues, such as menstrual abnormalities, menopausal symptoms, pelvic pain, fibroids, uterine polyps, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, hydrosalpinges or blocked tubes and polycystic ovarian syndrome. She is also skilled in gynaecological surgery, including hysteroscopy and laparoscopy or minimally invasive surgery. She provides care for each stage of pregnancy and is highly skilled at dealing with childbirth challenges.
Dr Lim sub-specialises in fertility and is a fully accredited specialist in assisted reproduction by the Ministry of Health (MOH). She provides consultation and clinical services for the full range of fertility issues and treatments, such as ovulation induction and ovulation monitoring, intra- uterine insemination or artificial insemination, in-vitro fertilisation (IVF), as well as fertility preservation including egg freezing. She was awarded the Health Manpower Development Plan (HMDP) by the MOH in 2019 to pursue a one-year fellowship in Reproductive Medicine and Fertility Preservation at the Royal Women’s Hospital Melbourne – one of the world’s leading providers for fertility preservation – under the tutelage of Professor Cathryn Stern. Since her return to Singapore, she has consulted numerous women and couples who need medical fertility preservation in the Singhealth medical cluster (Singapore General Hospital/ National Cancer Centre), and has also been an invited speaker to medical conferences and public forums to share her expertise on fertility preservation. Dr Lim is well poised to help women achieve their fertility preservation goals as Singapore introduces elective egg freezing to single women.

Having undergone pregnancy and childbirth journey herself, she is passionately committed to delivering the highest level of care to her pregnant patients and to give their babies the best start in life.
