Yesterday, I went and met Dr. Firuza Parikh in Mumbai. As soon as I walked in her clinic, I got such positive vibes. Everyone was helpful and cheerful. There was none of the you-are-wasting-my-time kind of attitude that I had experienced earlier. And I just sort of knew that I am going to continue my treatment here.
The only low moment was when I had to fill out the forms. Reproductive medicine forms obviously need the husband details and filling out his name made my hand tremble. I could feel tears welling up already, but I kept sipping water to keep them in. I didn’t want to cry in front of so many people. And then I had to tell them that he’s no more, cause of death etc. etc. and the dam broke. They were very patient with me though, in no hurry, helped me calm down and then took detailed history, did initial scanning and suggested some supplements for egg quality improvement.
Dr. Firuza was awesome! Friendly, considerate, and generally nice. And so was all her team. All I could think was – if something has to happen, it’ll happen here.
I am so glad I took the recommendation of my 2 friends to come here. I owe them a big one for this! All my stress fell away after speaking to her. There is hope now, and I am so sure things are going to work out!
Just waiting for my cycle to start now. Fingers crossed.
