Hello Friends, Got married in Oct 2005. Me and Spouse both planned to have a Baby after 2 years of our marriage.. But its said always it doesn't happen the way you think. Dec 2006 while I was travelling to my hometown for Xmas in Kolkata.. When I got up from sleep I was not able to see from my Left eye.. It was completely black out. Thought it was for that day only.. But it started everyday whenever I got up from sleep or rubbed my eye or bend down. I went Ophthalmologist.. He said it’s a case of Benign intracranial hypertension. I need to see Neurologist.. All my test was normal. So doctor suggested maybe due to over weight. I was put on medication and asked not to conceive till my brain/ Eye pressure is under control. In 3 month’s time, I lost 10 kgs and my brain and eye pressure was in under control. So was asked to stop medicine and can start family planning. But I was diagnosed with Fibroid. So had to get operated for the same. Post Operation I gained weight. So back to square.. Again Medicines and no family planning. This time my neurologist asked me for permanent solution which was Brain Surgery. I was shocked and decided to go for second opinion. Since I moved to Powai, I decided to visit doctors in Hiranandani Hospital. I met the Neurologist and Ophthalmologist and Gynecologist. Here comes my interaction with Doctor Vanita Raut. Mine and my Hubby’s first interaction with Dr. Vanita was first and last Impression. I told her that iam having Benign intracranial hypertension. And I been advise for no family planning till my Brain/eye pressure is under controlled. Dr. Vanita said pregnancy is not one day job. Many a times you might get pregnant while trying the first time. Or it might take few months or years also. So She advised me to start planning from my next cycle. Regarding my Benign intracranial hypertension. She said me to visit the Neurologist and Ophthalmologist and get their opinion. Dr. Vanita ensured me, infact had full confidence that my full cycle from pregnancy till delivery will be safe and they will manage smooth pregnancy and Delivery. Later I was understood most of my colleagues from my company visited her. My entire pregnancy was smooth. No problems was faced. Dr. Vanita never recommends for C-sections. But only if needed. In my case she didn’t have choice as I had undergone fibroid operation and since there were scars in my uterus. She recommended for C-section, otherwise the baby wouldn’t survive if tried for normal delivery. Also my brain pressure would shot up, which would be harmful for me. Since my hubby was aboard and I wanted him to be with me during my delivery. I planned my delivery date. According to numerologist 16th April before 8am was good time. But in Hiranandani Hopsital its rule that any delivery before 8am and 8pm there will be extra cost. When I said Dr. Vanita I want delivery at 8am. She said why do I want to spend extra money. We will delivery exactly at 8am. But Since I insisted. She agreed. ABOUT Dr. VANITA RAUT: She is women of few words. She will only speak what is needed. Only is you have any doubts she will answer and explain. She is very concerned about the patient in every matter. Health. Test. Safe Delivery and Ensure no waste of money is done by patients by doing non required test or C-section or Delivery off hours. Me and my family is so grateful to have her as my Gynecologist and encouraging us for planning a family and Giving us a Beautiful Daughter – ANAIA. HATS OFF TO DR. VANITA RAUT.
