Mr Ashok's Personal Philosophy to care

“It is my aim to provide the guidance, information and reassurance that each woman needs to enable her to feel completely comfortable in making the pregnancy choices and decisions that are right for her. Of course I want to ensure the safest possible birthing experience for all of my patients, this goes without saying, and I am unbelievably proud of each and every one of the 4000 babies that I have helped into the world. I believe most of all, however, that all pregnant women should be empowered to be able to choose the type of care that is best for them.”
