This was my first pregnancy journey and I started with one of the established hospitals in HAL road based on friend’s suggestion ( being new to Bengaluru), later with too much disappointment and tears approached Dr Anita on 50th day. On our (Husband & I) first visit, we were filled with joy as Dr Anita confirmed and made us hear baby heartbeat !!!
To start, Anita was 3rd doctor during my pregnancy journey and was suggested by colleagues in office. Later did I learn as handful of my peers already delivered a kid by consulting Dr Anita 😊. This gave me immense confidence.
She is a very friendly and nice doctor who encourages her patients to enjoy the beautiful journey of pregnancy and child birth, rather being apprehensive about it. Brings more positive vibes, build trusts and confidence in patient through charming smile and good way of treatment.
Be the 10th or 20th patient in waiting list at Diva Care, Dr Anita listens patiently and understands background, before suggesting next steps or medications. I was on minimum medications through out my pregnancy. This made me feel more comfortable during the entire 9 months as doctor was transparent. She makes sure she understands her patients well and after every visit there is a feel of contentment that I have been taken care and in safe hands.
During the last trimester, I had plans to join prenatal yoga, for normal delivery based on friend’s suggestion. Doctor made upfront suggestions as not to join for any such classes. She kept insisting on performing household work, squatting, walking and sit on haunches.
Unfortunately, I was running high fever as 101 F in last couple of days before delivery and doctor was very supportive, kept comforting by providing right medications and advise.
My labour progressed very slowly but the Dr was extremely patient. My temperature started rising the night before delivery. Dr Anita immediately rushed at 11.30 PM and attended me. Understanding that my hubby did not have dinner, she was with me for almost an hour till he could finish of his dinner.
After tiresome 26 hours labour (yes, its strenuous twenty-six hours 😊), I started shouting and screaming for a c-section. However, monitoring that all essentials are pretty much under control, she encouraged and at a point even forced for a normal delivery. Only because of her efforts and couple of junior doctors, I could have normal delivery and our baby boy was delivered super healthy on October 25 😊.
I would take 0% credit on this and all I did was mostly follow doctor instructions.
In a nutshell* ** **** ** ******* ********* , experience and positive attitude helped me during pregnancy tenure and was super satisfactory on all dimensions and we are extremely happy that we found the right person. Thank God.
Last, we will continue to recommend her to many of our friends, neighbours and truly bound to her in gratitude
Imp: One humble suggestion I would like to give specially to the first-time mommies-to-be, please follow Dr Anita's advise blindly. Do not google and complicate things !! Keep calm, you are in safe hands with Dr Anita being your Gynac.

I had difficulty conceiving coz of PCOD and had consulted several doctors/taken different medication in four years post marriage.
Finally one of my collegue suggested Dr. Anita from Motherhood hospital.
She welcomed us with her sweet smile, listened to us patiently..
She had an exact plan in her mind for my treatment and gave us confidence with the first visit itself.
Within six months of her treatment, we got the much awaited result. :)
Being the first pregnancy, we had lots of doubts/worries in our mind. During every consultation, she gave us lot of time and listen to our doubts and concerns and answer them patiently.
All our worries would vanish and we used to feel so much relieved and happy after meeting her.
She encouraged me to continue with my normal routine/activities and just enjoy pregnancy and not to worry about anything else..
And no unnecessary visits/medicines/test etc. As we stay quiet far away from her clinic, many a times she had asked us to send scan report, test report etc via email and not come in person so that I can avoid travel..
And she responds immediately over phone in difficult/emergency situations even if that's in the middle of the night!..
My 2nd trimester was scary as I got Dengue fever, CSR (blurred vision during pregnancy) etc, however Dr Anita helped us sail through those scary days with her positive attitude and caring and comforting approach!..
She takes care of us so well and guide us like an elder sister.. she is just exceptional!..Doctor ensured that the entire journey of pregnancy was made tension free for us.
If you are consulting her, be rest assured that you are in safe hands! A doctor whom we can blindly trust :)
I strongly recommend Dr. Anita for any infertility/pregnancy related issues, you will surely get the results very soon.
I have recommended her to many of my friends and continue to do so; a very approachable doctor, a very nice human being!..
We are forever grateful to Dr. Anita for her wonderful support during my entire pregnancy and making the whole journey so memorable. Thank you dear doctor..
*** ***** ** ** ***** *** ** *** ****** ** **** *** *** ****** *** ** ********* *** ********* ************ *** *********** ********** We visited Dr Anita after trying for pregnancy for almost one year. She suggested required tests. Important to note is she doesn't suggest any unnecessary tests and suggests best lab for respective test which is really helpful.
When our parents checked with another Dr based on our reports in native place she directly said we should go for IVF but when we asked Dr Anita she said not to think about IVF and worry, rather be positive and said it's possible normally. Yes, Dr Anita was so right.
After a treatment of 5 months from Dr Anita we could conceive. During pregnancy consultations also she was always very cool and never puts any unnecessary restrictions rather always said to enjoy the pregnancy and be happy. She never called for unnecessary visits during pregnancy.
During one of the scan she found that my amniotic fluid was low so she suggested to drink 6 ltr of water and good diet rather than medicines which most of Dr. suggest. I have seen many Dr who just keep scaring patients and prescribe unnecessary medicines. But she always prescribed only required medicines and always gave us confidence and said not to worry.
She is known for her track record of normal delivery and from first day of pregnancy she was like to go for a normal delivery. She suggested exercise from 20 weeks for normal delivery which really helped.
My baby had umbellical cord around her neck so we were quite apprehensive about normal delivery in such case but she was so positive and said it should not be an issue. While I has seen cases in my family where Baby had loop around neck and Dr. just did c-section without giving any option but thanks to Dr Anita that we could have a normal delivery. When I had my delivery(induced labor) we met with another patient of Dr Anita who was also admitted for labor induction and Dr. tried her best and gave 6 labor induction gels which proves she always tries her best for normal delivery.
These days when we see Dr who work just for money and doesn't care about patients well being she is just exceptional. She loves her work and doesn't work for money. *** ** *** *** ******* *** **** *** for fertility, pregnancy consultation and normal delivery Don't even think once. *** ** *** ***** Thank you so much mam.
I am blessed to have Anita ma’am as my doctor👩🏻⚕️.she is very friendly with her patients..she answered all my questions very calmly..In Bangalore it’s very difficult to find a good doctor who understands your problem and answer your questions nicely..Anita ma’am is the best i was very nervous throughout my pregnancy 🤰 but when i met her i felt i was in safe hands ..she wears a cute smile 😊on her face whenever she met.. I personally like her a lot bcoz of her i gave birth to my son 👶🏻naturally..My only concern throughout pregnancy 🤰was, Would i deliver normal? Because of Anita ma’am friendly behaviour i felt comfortable during my labour..she was very nice with my mom also as my mom was very worried seeing my pain but Anita ma’am talked to her in very positive way with smiling face.. I highly recommend her for pregnancy every doctor 👩🏻⚕️ should be like her with their patients so one can never feel uncomfortable in telling their problems... Thank you Anita ma’am,you are such a great person..🙏🏻
Dr. Anita did not turn up for over an hour from the appointment time.. whats worse was that she was unreachable this whole time leaving us with no predictability about whether the appointment will happen or not.. really bad experience for a first timer..
The story of a PCOD girl wanting to conceive is a story which requires patience, support from husband, perseverance and belief in yourself, However, all this is not easy to achieve unless you have someone like Dr. Anita to look after you and hand hold you through the journey like a loving sister. I feel totally blessed to have met her.
It requires a loving heart to take out so much time for each patient and keep trying with a never give up attitude.
Mine was an adamant PCOD and it was a long journey before I could conceive. Instead of feeling irritated about the continuous visits for follicular study etc, I was always rejoiced to meet her. You really cant talk about your struggle to many but Dr. Anita would always make herself a part of my sorrows and happiness.
If you are consulting her, be rest assured you are in the best hands possible and patience will pay surely!
While I write this I have a 16 month old healthy baby. Its just not about conceiving but even post that the journey to motherhood has been greatly looked after by her.
Words aren't enough to express my love and gratitude towards her!
Friends of mine had gushed about a wonderful Doctor named Anita Balakrishna when they were having babies and when it was my turn my choice was her. She made my whole journey of maternity such a joyful memory. I suffered severe nausea until 7 months and while many people around me started prodding questions that my baby will be malnourished or otherwise , she assured me that everything was normal and fine . Apart from my vital supplements she didn't pump me with medicines or send me into an unnecessary retinue of scanning /tests. She encouraged me to approach my activities as per my normal routine and just enjoy this wonderful phase of life.
I admire her dedication towards her patients and natural child birth. An anecdote I must share. On a visit during my 37th week the baby declared that it would be arriving in few days . She immediately cancelled her trip she had planned with her children since I would go into labour that weekend most possibly. Where do you find such passionate doctors these days. I delivered a healthy baby boy the same weekend as she had predicted . It was normal and I was bouncing back I'm no time. My family and I are truly bound to her in gratitude . Recommend would be a very juvenile term for a doctor of her caliber and dedication. Excellent doctor and a wonderful person.
Meeting Dr Anita Balakrishna has been the most life changing experience I've had. I had visited 6 different gynaecologists all who were happy to diagnose my pcos and tell me to lose weight and come back after a few months and tell me that my other gynaecology problems were all in my head. Enter Dr Anita who diagnosed my other two problems and had a very systematic way of solving them. She always gave the best guidance and counseling and gave me the courage to follow through her treatment which was always the best for me. She also pushed to do the best procedure and treatment keeping only my well-being in mind. Dr Anita's abundant experience, positivity, calmness to adversity and excellent skill and knowledge and calmness really set her apart. I never dreamt that I could have had a normal delivery with all the complications I had but Dr Anita ensured I had one. I'm very grateful to Dr Anita every time I see my beautiful daughter that I had a normal delivery and I was on my feet to look after her shortly after delivery. Dr Anita's dedication to the field of medicine will always make one feel that they are getting the best care and treatment inspite of any difficulties they face.
Thanks to doctor Anita Balakrishna,One of my office colleague referred me.This is my third doctor in Bangalore.We were trying for child more than 8 years and two doctors earlier they couldn't find the problems everything was fine for me and my husband.At last we meet Dr Anita . Whatever she told we just followed and within 15 months I conceived for the first time and after that also I just followed what she told.Now I delivered a Girl baby.
Nearly five years ago, We were referred to Dr. Anita for sister’s pregnancy From a friend with amazing reviews and from our very first meeting, my family sensed an ease with Dr. Anita’s approach; she was very methodical in every step and explained the reasons on every decision to be made.
My sister went on to have a
very healthy and positive pregnancy.
My journey to pregnancy was tough, I faced a lot of hurdles but with every hurdle we encountered, she held our hands every step of the way, and gave us confidence that we will eventually become parents.
Now, fast forward two years later...our home is finally filled with two laughters delivered by Dr. Anita my daughter and my nephew.
So, what words come to mind to describe Dr. Anita and the exceptional care I received with her?
Genuine kindness, trustworthy, passionate, lifelong doctor , and most importantly, the best doctor you will ever encounter ."
