Being a specialist in medical device decontamination, I was determined to have my children at home with no medical intervention. My first child, I had at home, in 4 hours, with no pain relief. Exactly a year later I was due to give birth to my second child preferably the same way. On a 28 week 3D picture scan it was noted that the baby was large for his weeks. The NHS confirmed this and gave me a plan at my local hospital to try to start the labour early. It was not their protocol to give elective caesarean section; they would use forceps. Being able to afford to go privately, there was no hesitation in taking this option knowing the potential risks of forceps. At this point I approached Chelsea and Westminster as in my knowledge surrounding HAI’s it is one of the best. I  asked for a recommendation for an Obstetrician and was advised on using Roshni Patel. After my experience with Roshni, from a personal and professional point of view, I would have no reservations in recommending her. The expert knowledge that Roshni imparted, enabled us to  make an informed decision on how we delivered our baby and at all points we felt in control of the situation. She made us feel at ease and was more than accommodating to my  personal requests. The recovery period was a lot easier than I thought and eight weeks later the section scar is a faint neat pink line. Due to my anxiety about medical intervention, I  thank Roshni and her team for making this experience positive.
