I have been consulting with Deepika ma'am for almost 3 yrs now. Thanks to her constant support throughout this period, I finally had a baby on 13th May 2021.
My pregnancy journey had been full of unwanted events. First was a spontaneous miscarriage around 3 yrs back. I was with a different gynae at that time and although she was knowledgeable and well sought after, the overall experience made me realize that going forward I would need more personal support from my doctor. After recovery, I researched and chose to consult Deepika ma'am for the way forward. I was badly traumatized by the miscarriage and was feeling down. But the first meeting itself provided me the much needed uplifting. She listened to my rant patiently and answered all my questions. I followed up with her for next year but as fate would have it, this too ended in a miscarriage. It broke me to the core and I started blaming anyone and everyone for it. But she talked me through and gave me the belief that there was nothing wrong with me or my husband and that these things happen naturally (in fact these are more common than we think they are). It was her encouragement only that gave me the strength to plan again. She took extra care of me and prescribed tests, medicines, injections, diet plan, Dos & Don'ts in daily life etc. as and when needed. As a result there was no early miscarriage third time around. But unfortunately, I developed Gestational Diabetes around 3rd month of the pregnancy. She kept a close watch and worked with an endocrinologist to keep me and my baby safe. Her well-planned tests also caught a dip in my iron levels timely which could've harmed the baby. In the 9th month I contracted Covid. It was a really bad time for Delhi-NCR and despite being overworked (as she was supporting many patients of her infected gynae friends as well), she provided me with all the guidance to navigate the uncertainties surrounding Covid and pregnancy. One specific instance I would like to quote when baby's movements were declining for a day. I panicked but I couldn't get a USG or NST done due to my Covid +ve status. She understood my anxiety and called some personal favors to arrange an NST for my baby within few hours. She even followed up after that by herself. I have never seen/heard a doctor help out at this level despite being stressed herself.
I was adamant for a normal delivery but these complications and my weight gained during pregnancy (~90 kg) meant it was difficult. She clearly told me about the various scenarios but she didn't give up on me and encouraged for a normal delivery. Owing to my religious beliefs, I wanted the delivery on a specific day. She accommodated my request and planned the induced delivery accordingly. The D-Day was c*azy. I knew that labor pain is much to take but didn't know this much! A night before delivery she kept constant contact with on-duty staff for my developments and was always available to us over phone. When the time came, she reached quickly to perform the delivery. I have seen cases in family where doctors delegated the delivery to someone else because they were busy elsewhere. But not her. She was always there for us and I can't tell you how comforting it was in those moments. There were some complications during the delivery but she handled them well and now our bundle of joy is healthy and already 2 months old :) .
Thank you ma'am for your support all this time. I don't think without your medical and mental support I could be the happy mother I am today.
I strongly recommend her to all those planning for parenthood.
P.S.: Sometimes there can be long wait periods at the clinic but that is because her patients like to talk to her and she gives ample time to every patient :) (though emergency cases are considered on priority)
