Aadya- Born in style At Cloudnine
Happiness was brimming from all corners in our world when I got to know that I was pregnant. We chose Cloudnine as our maternity & birthing home as I believed that it was the perfect place to welcome our baby in style. Our doctor, Dr. Leela Bhagavan, kept us up-to-date at all our appointments about the growth and other minor complications regarding my pregnancy.
The drama began On May 9th 2012, when I discovered I had spotting and had still a little over a month to go before my due date. I rushed from work for an emergency checkup, where Dr. Leela Bhagavan coolly informs me that I was in labour. Initially I was in complete state of shock as I thought this can’t be happening or that it must be a false alarm. I told Dr. Bhagavan “I’m not yet ready for this baby” to which she replied with a smile “But the baby is ready for you”. I didn’t know where to begin, my bags weren’t packed, mentally I was a month behind, my work place wasn’t informed, my mother needed to come over, and so on and so forth. I was advised complete bed-rest, and asked to return to the hospital when the contractions increased.
My water broke after a day and I was rushed to the hospital. This time, although partially prepared, I was greeted by Dr. Bhagavan with a smile saying “welcome back”, as she had predicted I was in labour and would deliver in 2 days’ time. I was at awe of her accuracy, experience and knowledge. At this point I completely gave in to her advice and instructions, fully aware that I would be having a preterm baby in a couple of hours.
Our little baby doll was born on 11th May 2012 through a normal delivery - healthy and beautiful. She was 35 weeks and 5 days weighing a little over 2 kilos. However she was kept under observation in the NICU for a few days. By God’s grace, family support and an army of highly qualified, experienced doctors, nurses and other supporting staff, she was safely taken care of by Cloudnine team.
Dr. Leela Bhagavan, proved to be “Bhagavan” for us, bringing our “Puttani Rani” safely into our world in style. We were so overwhelmed with all the events that happened within a matter of a day. I could not have asked for a better mother’s day gift!
Today our daughter, who we have aptly named “AADYA”, meaning someone who is always ahead, completes her first year and according to Dr. Nandini Nagar, has caught up with babies her age clearing all milestones and more. We are extremely proud and happy to be associated with Cloudnine and thank them for a warm and memorable experience.
