I am a 30 year old, qualified, MNC employee in Bangalore. I am not writing this review as some kind of vendetta against Dr. Nalini Biswas. I am just writing this hoping that her next patient be warned and does not have to go through what I wouldn’t want even my worst enemy to experience. I know she is quite a reputed and tenured doctor particularly popular for her ability to ensure normal delivery. But sometimes experience leads to over-confidence and the price has to be paid by someone like me. After being repeatedly assured that everything was normal—all the scan reports, blood test reports, urine test reports and even a steady blood pressure, after waiting for 40 long weeks and enduring 8 hours of labour pain I gave birth to a stillborn child. All our dreams, joy and expectations for our first child destroyed only because Dr. Nalini Biswas was confident that I would have a normal delivery. Neither I nor my husband had insisted upon a normal delivery nor did we request for some special muhurtam for the delivery to happen. We followed her instructions diligently, in toto. My due date, as per her, was 25th Nov 2015. We went to visit her on that day, as she had asked. Her clinic was brimming with patients as usual. She could spare little time for each patient. She did the Doppler test for me and asked me to get the NST test done for 20 minutes but did not perform any internal exam. She assured us that everything was fine and asked me to get admitted on 27th morning. We did exactly as we were told. But the baby was already gone. Just like that. The USG report only told us that there was no heartbeat and it had happened within 24 hours. Dr. Nalini Biswas came and blamed me for not recognising that the baby movements had stopped. When the fact was, I was still feeling movements. Even the attending nurses could feel the movements. But I was told that those were only passive uterine movements. I am not a doctor and that was my first pregnancy. I had no clue as to the various types of movements. Still, at my most vulnerable moment, she implanted the seed of guilt within me. A sense of guilt that has left me paralysed, that won’t allow me to get back to normal life, which has left me bereft of the courage to try for a baby again. We had no clue whether it would be safe for me to undergo a normal delivery procedure or whether there was any poisoning risk from the dead child within me. We were totally at her mercy. Yes I have survived the ordeal. I have lived to tell the tale of my harrowing experience of trying to expel the dead weight of my 3.14kg baby out of my body. But I have also been scarred for life. Maybe it was my fate. Maybe it was never meant to be. But my only request to whoever reads this is-- do not make the same mistake I did. Do not go to Dr. Nalini Biswas with a blind faith. Keep an open mind and most importantly get second and third opinions. You can contact me at 9740522996.
