Happy with: Explanation of the health issue
Role of Pediatricians in our lives is much more than perceived by our minds. Those innocent cuties speak to us through them. I realized this when we met Doctor Saurabh.
Things were smooth till my 8th month of pregnancy and I was unaware of the tornado that waited for me at the end of the 8th month. My baby planned to meet me almost 1.5 months before the forecast.
The day of delivery....when my just born baby was struggling to learn the inhaling and exhaling of oxygen through his yet to mature respiratory system, Doctor Saurabh was the first person to help him learn and make his smooth exit out of the NICU. To our surprise, he was out from there in 4 days though it takes longer, even for many normal birth weight babies.
All this could be possible coz of Doctor Saurabh's continuous monitoring, skillful approach and understanding of the subject!
But his role didn't end at the exit doors of NICU . Infact there started another chapter. My baby was ready to see the world, but i knew nothing about this most important exam of life, 'the motherhood' and destiny prepared the question paper even trickier giving me a premature child! I went into severe postpartum depression coz of all this and made a pediatrician's job even tougher, as now he had to deal with a weak and depressed mom. I needed some serious nurturing and mentoring throughout!
Fortunately we slided into the right hands and my doctor knew the path expertly from a 1.88 kg birth weight premature child to a 4.5 kg healthy baby lying in my laps right now enjoying his sleep blissfully and peacefully.
He showed us the staircase that consisted of some important precautions and principal concepts to be understood by parents.
To name a few, the list included the following :
1. Way to healthy lactation
2. How to judge sufficient amount of feed for the baby
3. How many layers of clothes are required by the baby
4. Baby development stages
5. How to ensure babies Long term immunity
It made my journey smooth enough to know my honey bunny's needs and serve him well. My confidence is boosted everytime he sees my child.
We found our baby's messenger in him and Ruhaan(my cutie) found his God father in him....I wish the same for every Parent and every child!
There's a suggestion to all, as these angels can't speak our language yet, so we need to know their languages well!
Especially for initial 6 months when babies struggle to get accustomed to the planet, us knowing them precisely is the least we can do for them.
And to do these we need doctors like doctor Saurabh !
