Consulted Dr. Asha.Khatri (Gynecologist)
I recommend the doctor
I started consulting Dr Asha around 25th week of my first pregnancy. We first met her mostly to get a second opinion on a few concerns, however I feel fortunate to have met her at just the right time. My previous doctor had recommended due date to be a week prior to the actual due date considered internationally. Dr Asha not only clarified my concerns regarding the due date which was a week later than was previously suggested to us, but also recommended us to get a few tests done for checking my gestational diabetes, (given my family history of diabetes), which my previous doc had not deemed important. The reports were an eye opener and happened to highlight that my GI was indeed on the higher side. I was required to cut down on my sugar and high GI intake immediately else it would have affected the baby's health. I followed the diet plan which the doctor suggested and was able to control my sugar levels very quickly.
Eventually when I was closer to the due date, another issue happened. I was adamant to get a normal delivery done, and even though the baby's head had been in position since two weeks I was showing no signs of going into labour. The doctor had started monitoring me every 2-3 days and we were discussing options in case the pains did not occur. When the due date was just 3 days away, we decided to get a memberane sweep done which helps the pains to start artificially. However my baby wasn't in any hurry. The same evening I was advised by the doctor to get admitted so that labour could be induced through medicines. We did the same however even until next morning nothing seemed to be working. It was not advisable to wait any further and on the next afternoon we dedicated to get the baby out through surgery. I was initially sceptical as some doctors create circumstances which might force you to get a c-section done, but Dr Asha was extremely careful of the fact that I was inclined for a normal delivery and did her best to help me with it but the situation did not support that. It was overall a great experience being consulted by Dr Asha. I'm extremely grateful to her for helping me through the pregnancy and getting a healthy baby delivered and would strongly recommend her.
