Happiness Finally is Dr Gautam Allahbadia’s personal Blog to pen down career success stories as he remembers them over the years.
It is an ongoing project and makes for interesting reading both for the layperson as well as for practitioners of Medically Assisted Reproduction (MAR).
His approach has been to offer the best fertility treatments to his patients, sometimes with out-of-the-box thinking to give them a child in the shortest possible time.
He worked with the first teams in India and the UAE to introduce IVF Lite or Minimal Stimulation IVF in both regions, which include drug-free (Natural Cycle IVF) and low drug approaches (IVF Lite) and has helped hundreds of women and families in their fertility journey.
After three decades of giving a chance to women in all circumstances, he has enough expertise in dealing with complex and difficult fertility problems and it is very satisfying to say that he has even helped many women who had actually, been turned away from other IVF clinics.
But what is most fascinating as well as educative is that every patient had their own unique struggles, their own difficulties to overcome, and their own journey dealing with infertility.
Hence, he is keen to share some of the many infertility and IVF success stories, which showcase how his patients endured a struggling battle with hope, even during times of discouragement as part of their IVF journey.
We share these real success stories of our patients knowing that many of you may empathize with the situation and realize that there is a solution for every problem.
