Why choosing W-Pratiksha was a good decision? Hospital Review



W Pratiksha
Picture source: internet

It’s one of the best hospitals that I have seen so far with extremely professional staff and breastfeeding friendly doctors, who will educate you as a new mom, eliminating fears and doubts regarding feeding and new born care.

I was sceptical when it came to choosing this hospital over many other super speciality hospitals in Gurgaon (Cradle, Fortis, cloud nine etc) as it was comparatively a new setup then (2016), however I went ahead with it and I’m happy that I chose it.

I also happened to attend the 'one day prenatal workshop' which was pretty informative.

Few most important highlights
  • The hospital is breastfeeding friendly; my baby was put on my chest few minutes after being born (he latched on like a pro https://www.facebook.com/images/emoji.php/v9/f4c/1/16/1f642.png:) )
  •   The neonatologist/ paediatricians/lactation consultant in the hospital kept reiterating the benefits of EBF (exclusive breast feeding) every time they came for visits
  •   We were informed of many myths and wrong practices related to new born baby care.

***Other Special highlights***


Planting a tree


  • The rooms are super cosy and comfortable with all amenities like that of a star category hotel.
  • The food too was good unlike many other hospitals
  • The hospital gave a cute birth certificate with our baby's foot prints and other details. 
  •   A booklet with details of our baby and month wise baby care, milestone chart and growth chart was given on discharge.
  • The parents are made to plant a sapling in the name of their new born baby; pictures are clicked and sent to the parents.
  • Cake is cut by the new parents with their doctor.
  • The staff does not take any tip, not even when insisted upon. https://www.facebook.com/images/emoji.php/v9/f4c/1/16/1f642.png:)
  •   Most importantly, the hospital bill is not too hard on your pocket/bank balance! All this priced pretty competitively with other good hospitals around.

Cake cutting at the hospital

My experience could have been bettered if they had the hospital well-staffed on Sunday(the day I got admitted); however all in all we left the hospital with our swaddled bundle of joys and a happy memory.

I would be soon writing a checklist for to-be parents on finalising a hospital for delivery.

Disclaimer: This is not a paid review.  I am in no way related to the management, nor am I employed with the hospital. It is solely based on my experience there in the year 2016. If you are looking for a hospital in Gurgaon for birthing I would certainly recommend W, however kindly do your checks and do not depend on this one review.

Capsule wardrobe ideas for a new mom

Hello people,
The New Year is right here with lots of excitement, hopes and new beginnings, to welcome the coming year with swag and style, we have come together to bring plethora of fashion inspiration in this "Fashion-a-thon" a fashion blog-train initiative by Ruchie of Wigglingpen.


Before you move ahead and see what I have in store for you please check out what Sayeri says on her lovely fashion blog-- Here.
I have never been a fashion enthusiast, but who doesn't like wearing nice clothes and look good? I am someone who would rather accentuate a simple kurti with a heavy dupatta or a jacket or a top/tee with a shrug or scarf.  Although, I try not to splurge, but don't know how i end myself up in piles of clothes with still nothing to wear. If you have read my other posts you will know that I am trying to go the minimal way and hence I have almost limited my shopping; if i have to buy a dress for myself, I give away one or two from my wardrobe. 


Right now i am a lazy…

How to help your baby with speech?

"Nov you" "Owe you"
Yes, I am waiting for my little man to say that, since he hasn't yet said "love you" to me, I am only guessing the sound of it (knowing he doesn't say "La" still) Like everything that happened on its own time, this too shall. 
In my previous post (Click here) I shared some bits from my baby's vocabulary and speech journey, each day I have something new to listen to and it only makes my smile wider.
A child has her/his own time to meet the milestones, there is no magic wand to have them up n running and dancing and singing. Out of all the milestones speech has the widest range from 8-9 months to 24 months for their first words. 
The two types of communication that a child uses are Receptive and Expressive. The Receptive communication means that he/she knows a particular word and Expressive communication is that they are able to speak or express it. For example, a baby may know what water is, but may not be able to…

Musical Bonding - A Playful and Innovative Music Class for Parent & Child

If you have followed my blog-series on music, you would already know what I am talking about.

Musical bonding holds a very special place for us and we have found our emotional connect to it; so, my series wouldn't be complete without a dedicated post on it.

To get a better understanding of this parent -child programme for all my readers, I spoke to Aditi Shah, founder of Musical Bonding and here is what she has to say about one of her babies- "MB"!! 
  How did you come up with a programme that is so unique to Indian market?

Musical Bonding did not happen as a planned programme for the Indian market. The music provided by The Music Class allowed us (my husband and me) to have lots of fun with our two kids, singing, dancing and learning. Musical Bonding started as a simple attempt to make some friends in a new country and for the benefit of my own kids.
  Why Music, what does music mean to you?

I have background in Indian classical music and know that it is not the kind of musi…
