Today I am going to write about a person who has played a very important role in my life. She is a real super hero.. yes I call her my Fairy God Mother after I conceived my little princess.
So let me introduce you to my gynaecologist Dr. Rekha Agrawal. My story with her started long before I conceived and always I knew she will be the one for me.
The day I got the big news, I wasn’t ready for it; I thought this was not just the right time. It takes a right person with a certain kind of power to explain and convince a confused and stressed person who is about to make the biggest descision of their life. And she was the right person for me.
Further in my pregnancy, I was a stressed primee diagnosed with hyper tension. There she played the role of my mother -disciplined me to deal with things in my life with firmness. She actually taught me how to zone out all the advice that pregnant women get from everywhere around and just focus on what’s important for me. She was the one who made me realise nothing other than my little one should be more important to me right now.
It’s very important for a patient to confine in their doctor. She knows exactly how to maintain the doctor and patient relationship. She could easily read between the lines and sense what I was trying to convey.
I gradually started enjoying my pregnancy and it was only because of her. I started enjoying my monthly visits, I would always book the last appointment for the day and she would patiently sit and have a small chat with me over a cup of coffee. That few minutes of chit chatting with my Doctor had so much power. It made me feel happy, confident and energenitc to deal with all the pregnancy blues.
I enjoyed sharing my journey of nine months with her, she is always one of the finest memories from my pregnancy days. Of course she is a wonderful doctor but most importantly she is a wonderful human being. The best statement I learned from her which I now tell all my pregnant friends is ” you are not sick or ill you are pregnant, so just enjoy and stay active”.
Thankyou so much for making my preagnancy a wonderful experience
