“I went through the most fabulous experience of my life and it was made so comfortable because of Dr. Nina Mansukhani. Her vibrancy and assurance kept me going throughout the 9 months. Today, I delivered a baby boy and the last phase of my experience in labor ward will remain a sweet memory due to the gentleness, caring and encouraging attitude of Dr Nina and her team. They boosted my motivation level and led me through a wonderful labor experience. Everything was perfect. Last but not the least, I was absolutely impressed by the manner in which Dr. Pawan and Dr. Pragati expanded my knowledge about the reason behind each and every step that we took which was very inspiring.”
