Mrs. Pooja writes to us:
I’m Pooja from Punjab and married for 10 years. I got married at the age of 23. I’m the first daughter in my family so everyone was expecting me to tell them the ‘good news’ about my pregnancy but conceiving a baby became a nightmare for me. Our visits to doctors were never ending and I had to swallow a lot of tablets on top of it, the pressure from the family kept me worried.
My husband was very supportive and took me to almost all the fertility clinics and gynecologist around Punjab but none of it worked well for me. Some doctors were very kind and some weren’t. Several scans and numerous reports failed on us instantly. I was suffering from Tube blockage and had also gone through a surgery to remove the tube blockage. But I failed to conceive even after that and tried IUI a couple of times. When we looked back, we had already crossed 7 years of marriage and I had entered into my thirties.
I have read a lot of articles on the internet about the difficulties of conceiving after the age of 30. I was depressed, my husband was worried and we were not able to lead a normal life till we met Dr. Shivani Sachdev Gour. A close friend of mine suggested me to try the famous IVF center in Noida and out of no hopes we took an appointment with the Dr. Shivani Sachdev Gour.
Today, I feel glad that I met my favorite doctor who helped me to become a mother. Yes, I’m the mother of the one-month-old cute little princess. We have named her Hanvi. I would like to share my experience with the doctor and how fortunate I am to have come across the most approachable, patient and friendly doctor.
It was tedious during those days but now I feel happy that I had gone through this procedure. Dr. Shivani Sachdev Gour monitored me closely during the entire process until my childbirth. Her care and encouraging words have helped me to conceive without any complications.
Dr. Shivani Sachdev Gour was gentle with me and she kept telling me that my eggs were good and the embryo is perfectly fine. She even told me to talk to the embryo. Her confidence passed on some positive energies and the result was positive this time. Had I not gone to IVF center in Noida, it would have been a different story. They gave us a meaning to our life and I’m holding my little one who is the gift for our love and relationship.
What I liked about IVF center in Noida is the way the staffs behave. They understand the needs of every patient and are happy to help us. I was not passed on from counter to counter like a lifeless parcel. I was being guided and told the right thing to do. There was someone to guide and help us throughout the process which eased away from our pain. Their smiling faces bring a lot of happiness. I admired Dr. Shivani Sachdev Gour’s clarity of speech and her personal care and affection.
During my childbirth:
Throughout my pregnancy, Dr Shivani Sachdev Gour from IVF center in Noida was very helpful. She helped me understand the symptoms and took good care of me. Regular scans and checkups went well without any problem. I came to the clinic when I had mild pain during my 9th month and the doctor came to help me immediately. She insisted that I have a normal delivery and taught me few exercises. And yes, with her advice I was able to deliver my baby through the normal wa
How did I feel?
To be frank, my aim was just to get pregnant and my mind was occupied only with the thoughts of pregnancy. The physical pain during the tests and the treatment did not affect me or the husband at all; however, my emotions played a roller coaster. The treatment is all about waiting. You have to wait for an appointment, wait for results, wait for your name to be called, wait to become pregnant, wait to become a parent and you need to just keep waiting for something good to happen. I was frustrated whenever I had to hear something negative. I was depressed when someone points their finger at me and commented: “I’m childless”.
My husband was my only strength who gave me the complete support and yes, our parents too supported us whenever we needed them. My friends who have already gone through IVF and have experienced their success and failure blessed us with their comforting words and they encouraged us throughout our treatment and the tough journey. I felt nice talking to my friends who have already gone through the same process. It made some sense to talk with someone who really did understand what I was referring to.
