WHAT MOTHER S ARE SAYING ABOUT DR.VINODHA
NATURAL BIRTH,WATERBIRTH,AND HYPNOBIRTH
Our Alice came !!! With all respect and love, in her time, in a natural water-birth delivery.
At 41 weeks, 52 hours of broken bag. She was born with 3,080 kilos and 52cm.
It was not easy to go through all process, all the pressure of the broken bag and the waiting for 41 weeks, but my guardian angel Dr. Vinohda, was with me all the time, fought for me, comforted me, gave me strength, guided me, gave me security and helped me through the labor, doing exercises with me, positions, and most importantly helping me to balance my mind.
She was my birth companion(doula), my angel. I have no words to thank enough her for everything she did for us. Everything happened as we dreamed.
From the beginning, she calmed me down, through all of the pregnancy and preparation for childbirth. Without it all of this would be very difficult.
Thank you Vinodha, for everything you have done for us, our family will be eternally grateful!
Thank you Happy Mom, for the support since I got here in Hyderabad.
I’m posting some photos.
Do not forget to have a doula, it makes all the difference at the time of your baby’s birth.
Thanks, God bless you!!!
Priscila, Arecio and baby Alice.
ABOUT LACTATION CONSULTATIONS
Dr Vinodha is a blessing in disguise ! She is easily approachable, kind hearted and very patient in understanding your medical issues and provides fool-proof solutions. Problems related to lactation are very common these days but have become a NO MAN’S LAND. Neither the obstetrician nor the paediatrician would really deal with lactation problems. Lactation experts fill the gap and Dr. Vinodha is the best. She understands your issues at the core level, spends considerable time explaining things, makes sure you understand them and gives you dietary and medical advice. She instills a positive attitude and gives you a new hope. At the end you would feel confident enough to deal with the problems.Her words and treatment really worked for me and I would recommend all those with lactation problems to consult her. God bless you, doctor. – Rashmi
The most memorable day of our lives-our bundle of joy was born on 12th Dec 2016.
As a 1st time mom, I wanted to give the very best to my baby, no matter what, fighting against the whole world if that is what is required.
Having attended many classes on breastfeeding and upon knowing its importance and benefits that BREAST MILK IS THE BEST MILK, I was so keen and adamant that I will only exclusively breastfeed for at least 6 months. Little did I know the challenges in it. Within 3 days, my baby had lost 370 gm of weight, inspiTe of knowing it was common, as a new mom I was completely worried. Doctors concluded that mine were inverted nipples, baby didn’t know how to suck etc and finally suggested to go for formula feed due to inadequate milk, which I strongly refused to give. My baby was crying all day and all night due to hunger. I was so helpless and in tears all through. Then we adopted to expressing my breast milk on 4th day when my baby was put in phototheraphy for jaundice. It came as a relief since my baby was drinking and sleeping peacefully. I was satisfied that one way or the other, he was indirectly drinking breast milk which I had abundantly and his tummy was finally full. This express feeding continued for 5 days where I was trying to feed him direct breast milk but in vain.
On 10th day I panicked as my baby completely refused to drink directly.
That is when we referred to the internet and came across HAPPYMOM website and Dr.Vinoda s-Lactation clinic, who were really life saviors. Thank you so much for patiently explaining the root cause of the problem and simplifying the solution. Now it has been 4 days since my baby has started exclusively breast feeding. You made our life much note easier.
My 1st learning and beat learning as a mom, from this experience, is that we should never ever get discouraged if we fail the first time, and if needed try for 100 times but never give up. You need to bring out your inner strengths and work it out. You will definitely feel sad and tired at first, but never give up adding to the sadness as these postnatal blues will worsen the situation. Don’t get discouraged with anything. You and you baby will work it out together and You will be 100% successful.
Under proper GUIDANCE-
PRACTICE, PATIENCE AND PERSEVERANCE will help you achieve wonders and make you super moms. It certainly did in my case.
Our heartfelt THANK YOU to Vinoda madam, who helped us by solving our problem in a simple way and making our lives much more easier and much more beautiful. Thank you once again madam.

THE PLACE WHERE I DELIVERED HAS A LACTATION CENTER…BUT IT DID NOT SUPPORT ME OR UNDERSTAND MY LACTATION PROBLEM….THEY DID NOT HAVE A PROPER CONSULTANT.
ALL THAT THEY TOLD WAS TO CONSULT PEDIATRICIAN. I CAME ACROSS DR.VINODHA THROUGH HAPPYMOM AND SHE HAS BEEN VERY RESOURCEFUL AND CAME TO KNOW LOTS OF THINGS RELATED TO BREASTFEEDING
I AM VERY MUCH THANKFUL TO HER AND IT HELPED ME A LOT.
I DELIVERED MY BABY 4 DAYS BACK (SECOND BABY) 25 /2/20017.
MY BABY WAS NOT SUCKING WELL. SINCE MY FIRST BABY WAS SUCCESSFULLY BREASTFED FOR 15 MONTHS, I ASSUMED THIS BABY WAS ALSO DOING IT RIGHT ONLY TO REALISE THAT MY BREASTS….
WERE HURTING BADLY.WE WERE FEELING HELPLESS AND THINKING……
SHULD I GIVE FORMULA?
SHULD I EXPRESS MILK WITH BREASTPUMP?
THEN I READ LOVELY REVIEWS FOR DR.VINODHA WHEN I BROWSED.
I DECIDED TO MEET HER.
COULDN’T REACH HER AT ANY OF THE HOSPITALS SHE VISIT AS HER TIMINGS WERE DONE.
WHEN I CALLED HER AND FOR IMMEDIATE HELP SHE WAS KIND ENOUGH TO CALL ME OVER TO HER PLACE.
THE BEST DECISION WITH REGARDS TO BREASTFEEDING IS TO MEET DR.VINODHA..THANKYOU DOC FOR ALL THE HELP AND REQUEST YOU TO GIVE CONSULTATIONS IN SECUNDERAD TOO.

ABOUT LABOR SUPPORT AND DELIVERY
Hi I am AnushaMadduluri age 26 Years from Jaggaiahapet AndhraPradesh…
My prepregnency weight was 67Kgs and I have no complications during pregnancy. I took treatment in 2 hospitals up to 7th month i got treatment from famous hospital in Hyderabad, then in 7th month i moved to my hometown for my delivery.In 9th month my weight was 77kgs, I had flat nipples and No one examined my breast during pregnancy.On June 10th 2016 i gave birth to a baby girl and her weight was 2.750kgs as c-section was done to me my child was given bottle feeding for 3 days with Buffalo milk. As i know the importance of colostrum and breast feeding from 14th June 2016 i tried to breast feed my child, Baby was not breast fed with in 1 hour after birth Due to flat nipples and baby already got habituated to bottle feeding baby was not able to suck my nipples and baby was not breast fed. Syringe exercise was suggested by doctor in Jaggaiahapet, and i tried to make it work but there was no result. After 7 days i got discharged from hospital baby was still unable to suck nipples so i searched in google for LACTATION experts available in Hyderabad. Then i came to know about DR.VINODHA and consulted her. I traveled 250kms from Jaggaiahpet to Hyderabad and i met lactation consultant DR. VINODHA when my child was 12 days old, she gave training in different ways to breast feed my child. I felt very happy after seeing these different methods that i am confident pretty much that i can breast feed my baby. I took consultations for 2 days though it didn’t work immediately doctor suggested alternate method. Then baby started breast feeding with the help of nipple shield. It took 1 week for me to train my baby to breast feed without nipple shield. As my Doctor was more concern she is touch with us about the status. And my baby birth weight was 2.750kgs, She was just 2.500kgs and now i am happy to say that my baby weight is 4 kg. I am very happy with this LACTATION consultant and the concern doctor showed on my child. I am feeling the real happiness in motherhood while breast feeding. I even suggested my other friends about her . I am sharing my experience in training my child with other new moms.
I am very much thankful to DR.VINODHA
I AM A HAPPY MOM NOW.
Dr.Vinodha with her chirpy prescence has initiated the process of pleasurable breastfeeding for our 6 day old baby. Our baby had oblem and was very weak with jaundice. While everyone pushed us towards the formula route,Dr.Vinodha insisted on giving breastfeeding a chance.Although sceptical at first,we now realize that with the right physical cues breastfeeding is pleasurable for both the baby and the child. Everyone talks about motherhood being a joy but without the right kind of guidance and support systems ,it can turn into a nightmare.
Dr.Vinodha is just an epitomal example of being the right support system.I learnt this in just two sessions.Everymother ,soon to be mothers should give such a lactation counsultant a try…..
