Hi there, I am Vaishakhi. I have one month old baby who is now on exclusive breastfeeding just because of Dr Prachee Shah's guidance. My first week as a mother was not going as planned. Even though I am doctor myself I had every possible problem in breastfeeding that can occur to a first time mother. Low birth weight of baby than expected, baby refusing to suck, even I was not able to get proper amount of breast milk expressed for my baby. On fourth day baby developed dehydration fever an then I need to put her on top feed. I was feeling very depressed as I felt inadequacy to feed my child. On fifth day I consulted Dr Prachee for breastfeeding and then my journey as mother become smoother. She took a very balanced or I can say a personalized approach for me and my baby. She took all the anxiety out of me by having very calm and comfortable first consultation. As an when required consultation and availability of video call consultation has helped me to put total trust on Dr Prachee. Her in depth understanding of baby-mother relationships and mother's frustration along with encouragement of exclusive breastfeeding makes her best lactation consultant. My baby took around 3 weeks to be on exclusive breastfeeding but those 3 weeks were very smooth under Dr Prachee's care. Now I feel blessed.
