First time I met her was Oct 2016. I went to her adamantly wanting a cervical stitch due to a previous los. But she suggested against it and instead advised other non invasive and natural methods during pregnancy. Instead of advising us to just getting preg she asked us to do certain tests to eliminate all possibilities, advising me to fix all my dental problem, losing weight, etc etc. During my entire pregnancy she watched over my diet, my weight , my bp, my fibroids and such other factors like a hawk. She monitored me very very closely. She never ignored even the smallest factor. I knew my preg was a hard one due to my late age, overweight, multiple fibroids, previous los, tendency of G.D, bp, etc. So she put me on strict bed rest and diet. My entire preg I never put on weight, I remained the same thru entire preg. With her guidance and advice I had one of the most normal smooth easy pregnancy ever, I have known young healthy girl to have complications. But I dint have a single issue. Not one complication. She dint only advise us medically, but spoke and counseled us on a personal level. She helped us become more mature, take further responsibility, prepare us financially and most of all she turned us into parents before our baby came. She instilled the feeling of mother and father into us , always ensured we put the pregnancy and the baby first and the highest priority. I had one of the most smoothest delivery. I don’t know when it started and when it ended. Again zero complications. I was walking and resuming all my normal activities the next day. I felt no pain , no issues. Today we are blessed with a baby and it’s all due to her guidance. I recently met her for follow up, asked her when can we try again, her answer was minimum 2 years. Any other doc would have said anything between 6months to 1year. But she saw my and my newborn’s well being first. It’s like she is allergic to money. I was paranoid during entire preg and kept asking her for some or the other thing which would have earned her a lot of money, but all she did was turn me down. Her only advise was bed rest, food and lifestyle. She is very particular about tests and scans though, to a level where she will call the scan people personally while my scan is getting done. She knew the report before it was printed. She is like an anxious mother. She does not overlook anything. She is blunt, very honest ( may seem rude), extremely ethical , disciplined , highly principled. If you are looking for a doctor who sugar coats and is very diplomatic or will provide you polite customer service, you need to go to a good hotel. Because she is only about the baby, medical and ethics. By the end of my preg she was like my family member. She is on top of all latest medical and technological updates. She does not need to look at your file, does not forget any detail. Is always available for chats on whatsapp. Towards last few weeks of my preg she was more bothered about my reports than her fees. As mine was a HR pregnancy she never bothered me to come multiple times for visits. Her only concern was my baby’s safe delivery. If every doctor in the world is like her than there will no patients. I wish she was my paediatrician, my dentist, my physiotherapist etc etc etc. Grateful is a small word, Me, my husband and our families are indebted to her forever.
