“I’m a people person and OB-GYN is the epitome of what is important to me: the unique blend of establishing an interpersonal relationship and the continuity of care through all stages of a woman’s life. Seeing a teen for her first GYN visit at thirteen years of age and continuing to do so, year after year, helping her with important decisions throughout her reproductive life and beyond is very rewarding. The icing on the cake , is being privy to the most sacred and memorable moments of a couple’s life: during the birth of their baby. This is indeed an honor and privilege experienced by a select few and I’m truly blessed to be able to do this day after day.”
After medical school Dr. Saimah Talukder trained in England as an OB-GYN, and is board certified by both the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in the United Kingdom and the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology here in America. Following subspecialty training in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility in London, she moved from one world famous capital city to another, Washington DC where she did her OB-GYN residency at George Washington University Hospital. She moved to Shreveport after residency and has been in practice since 2009. At OB-GYN Concepts, she can spend as much time as she wants with every one of her patients. This allows doctor and patient to establish a rapport that is essential for optimum patient care.
Dr. Talukder’s first love is obstetrics. Despite the innumerable babies she has delivered “it never ceases to enthrall me every time I bring a baby into the world,” she says. She takes pride in a low cesarean section rate and resorts to surgical delivery only when absolutely necessary. “Our ultimate goal is to have a healthy mom and baby and I’ll do everything to assure this” she emphasizes. To that end she encourages VBACs- vaginal births after cesarean section and tries her best to let a woman have a TOLAC- trial of labor after a cesarean, if that is her wish and there are no maternal or fetal contraindications. She also has an interest in the infertile couple, abnormal uterine bleeding, recurrent miscarriages, adolescent gynecology, menopause, hormone replacement therapy, multiple births and vaginal twin delivery.
Dr. Talukder lives here with her daughter and husband, also a physician.
