Finally penning down my long pending review of Dr Siri Vani since my first visit to her 11 months ago -- my little one is 5 weeks old today! I cannot even begin to express how very grateful I am to Dr Siri for being with me throughout my pregnancy journey right from planning/wanting to conceive and start a family to delivering my baby followed by postnatal care. She has been the perfect amalgamation of being extremely warm, friendly, accomodating, understanding, kind, patient, dedicated, prompt, professional and efficient in her work.I first came across her profile randomly on Practo while I was looking up gynaecologists and decided to go ahead with her basis good user reviews and I wasn't disappointed!! Right from day one, Dr Siri has always been very approachable and available via calls and text messages at any time of the day. She is super prompt in her replies on WhatsApp. She explains everything in detail and puts you at ease when things don't go as planned. Every doctor's visit I used to have a never ending list of pregnancy related queries and concerns and Dr Siri always addressed them with a lot of patience, reasoning, and clarity. Having struggled with gestational diabetes and other minor setbacks during my pregnancy, doctor always ensured that both me and my baby were safe and were at minimal risk only through limited and necessary tests which were really required. I have lost count of the multiple breakdowns I've had in front of her...at times due to pregnancy stress and at times due to raging pregnancy hormones, and every single time Dr Siri was able to calm me down and comfort me and offer workable solutions. The constant smile on her face and her cheerful attitude really made a difference and helped when the going got tough.My delivery was a breeze under her able expertise and I was over the moon when my wish came true of having a safe and normal delivery in just a couple of hours. She even very sweetly went the extra mile to humour me during my contractions when I was in labor to help distract from the excruciating pain!! When I was dilating at a really rapid pace right before I delivered in the very early hours of the morning, on being intimated, Dr Siri immediately reached the hospital in no time to attend to me. Post my delivery too, she has been absolutely thorough and safe with my postnatal care. I found a blessing selecting Dr Siri as my gynaecologist and I will always be eternally thankful to her for my bundle of joy! I strongly recommend her able and experienced hands to all expecting women for a smooth pregnancy journey and ultimately a safe delivery.
We initially went to Dr Siri Vani for pregnancy counseling having tried for about ~10 months and she won us over then and there by not only patiently listening to us but also by not prescribing any unnecessary tests. Anyone who has been through that phase would understand how mentally challenging those times can be and having a doctor who is comforting and at the same time honest with you is the best thing that can happen to you. Dr Siri Vani counseled us in her own sincere and yet comforting manner. So, when we actually got pregnant, about a month from then, going back to her as our Gynaec was a no-brainer.
Q: Who is a Gynaecologist?
A: Gynaecology is the medical specialization that deals with the female reproductive system. Hence, a Gynaecologist is a doctor who specializes in the health and the problems of the female reproductive system that includes the vagina, ovaries, uterus and breasts. Additionally, gynaecologists are also trained in Obstetrics and hence can deal with pregnancy and child birth too.
Q: Is there a difference between Gynaecologist & Obstetrician?
A: Where a Gynaecologist deals with the health and wellbeing of the female reproductive system, an Obstetrician specializes in pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum care. A Gynaecologist is trained in Obstetrics too. Hence, when a woman is pregnant, she can either consult a Gynaecologist or an Obstetrician, but for issues related to the female reproductive system, she should consult with a Gynaecologist.
Q: What are the common procedures performed by a Gynaecologist/Obstetrician?
A: Gynaecologist: 1. Dilation and Curettage (D&C) – The uterine lining is removed either by suction or with a curette. 2. Hysteroscopy– A hysteroscopy treats minor conditions inside the uterus in a non-invasive manner. Obstetrician: 1. Normal delivery - An Obstetrician helps in childbirth. 2. C-section – In case of any complications, the Obstetrician operates on the patient to ensure safe childbirth.

In case of infertility in women, you should consult with your Gynaecologist/Obstetrician, who will then refer to a specialist if required.
