Today at 9 months post delivery I am penning down my breast-feeding experience which was strengthened by Dr Nirali Shah’s advice and support. It all started a few hours post the delivery when my son had successfully latched. He did his part and then the onus was on me to take this bond forward and for long. It was far easier to give up and go for an alternative, but one of the factors that kept me going was the insights shared by Dr Nirali whom I consulted soon after my discharge. I can’t thank her enough for this.
It took some time to get used to breastfeeding, many a times, I was frustrated, annoyed, exhausted and what not but the motherhood feeling that it gave was just incomparable. After few hiccups, soon things started settling down and “tangible” benefits started showing up 😊
My son was exclusive on bf till 6months and the bond still continues till date.
It ticked mark all the basic factors – Time, effort and money!
Economical and environment friendly- no formula, no bottle, no sterilization. It kept me mobile – milk supply was available anytime and anywhere as long as I and my son were together 😊 I had all the time just to focus on him and his milestones. I made 6 travel trips between 2.5 months to 6 months, stayed with relatives and in hotels, without any hassle. Touchwood – no frequent rounds to the doctor except for vaccinations. And overall a satisfaction that my child was getting the best.
I would highly recommend Dr Nirali to every expecting mother and new mothers. She had a holistic approach for motivating new mother towards breast feeding – what to expect, when to expect, dietary habits etc., and she is quite approachable for any query that you may have.
She is always always around to help. She not only provide necessary guidance and provide knowledge and awareness, she understands your state of mind and uplift you from there if needed. Never seen any doctor who is so passionate for her work and her patients.

I wish I would have met Doctor Nirali Mam during my pregnancy and right after my delivery.
It was a great help for me to get guidance for breastfeeding and increasing supply and pumping.
When I had my second baby at Dr Sangeeta Shetty's Shivani nursing home at Mulund, I had the good fortune of meeting Dr Nirali . She was the breastfeeding counsellor for me. She is warm, soft and helpful when a mother needs that guidance and help the most. It 's extremely calming and resourceful for a newbie mum specially to have the right information and inputs to breastfeeding. Thank you Dr Nirali, for being part of our journey.
