This is my 2nd year of A to Z challenge. When I was registered for it I was not at all sure, what am I gonna write about. Then it came to my mind (as I revealed in my Theme Reveal Blog) why not do it about differently abled kids.
But when I actually started working on it, I was unsure whether I will be able to complete it, whether I will get all the alphabet related topics, etc. Many questions rose in my mind and I started thinking did I do the right thing in selecting this theme???
But then like last year, this year too I was determined to complete the challenge, come what may. I sought help of my daughter’s therapist Dr. Sujata, Dr. Smriti, Dr. Mousam and her doctor Dr. Gopikrishnan Nambiar, all of them encouraged me and helped me with topics wherever I struck.
During this journey of the challenge, I realized how much little I knew about children and their different conditions. How difficult it can be for someone to recognize the symptoms and get it to doctor’s attention and get it diagnosed?
But in all, this year too, I did hit some road blocks due to ill health, did stumble and fell down on some topics, but still I picked up myself, dusted and continued and finished the challenge.
I really want to thank Dr. Sujata, Dr. Smriti, Dr. Mousam and Dr. Gopikrishnan Nambiar for their guidance and valuable inputs, Dr. Rupal, Janaki, and many of my other friends for always reading my blogs and lending me their support and valuable comments, Dr. Gauri, our baker-dentist & Dr. Gopikrishnan Nambiar, who inspite of their busy schedule agreed for guest post, (1st guest post of my blog), and all other readers who followed my blog, commented through the end.
A very big Thank you to all.
A small summary of my A to Z journey this year:
See you all next year in A to Z challenge 2016.

A woman goes through various stages in her lifetime. During these stages she also plays different roles; role of a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, a mother-in-law amongst many others.
During these various stages, even her body undergoes various changes from a girl to a teenager to a woman. Since childhood we are taught of putting family’s needs and demands before ours. If we see women around us, we see them always neglecting themselves while taking care of her family and household. For example, have you ever observed even if our mom is not well she will get up and prepare breakfast for us.
Amongst other doctors, gynecologist is a very important person in maintaining a woman’s health. A woman doesn’t consult a gynecologist only when she is pregnant or when she is delivering a baby. Now-a-days there are lots of health-issues which a woman experiences and need to be looked after like infections, cancer etc.
A women’s body goes through lots of changes during a lifetime, during pregnancy, child birth, menses, menopause etc. But, usually a woman hesitates to visit gynecologist and even if they visit, they usually prefer to visit a lady gynecologist too.
In a city like Ahmedabad, where in previous days, women were confined within four walls of the house, and were not allowed to socialize and mingle, has now changed. Ahmedabad is now a fast developing city. Not only in case of infrastructure but also in case of health industry, Ahmedabad has improved a lot.
Finding a good Gynaecologist in Ahmedabad is not too hard now. Women are paying attention to their health and well-being. And with surrogacy and IVF methods in demand, Obstetrics and Gynecology in Ahmedabad are in great demand.
As surrogacy and fertility industry is blooming in the city, so is need for good gynaecologist. Not only for pregnancy or child birth, but due to fast forward lifestyle of cities, their eating habits, it affects their overall health. It affects the monthly cycle, conceiving, childbirth etc. That’s where need of good gynaecologist comes in.
Like all other doctors, we prefer visiting gynaecologist on referrals from friends or close relatives, especially during delivery. We take into consideration their reputation, the distance from our place in case of emergency, the staff, the facilities, etc. Previously we used to rely on word-of-mouth reviews, but now with availability of various websites, wherein we can read the reviews, get their address and contact number, searching for Obstetrics and Gynecology in Ahmedabad had never been easy.
Parenting is a big task and now-a-days taking care of kid’s health and well-being is one big challenge for parents. With kids gulping down junk food and sweets, maintaining oral hygiene is very difficult.
Teeth are very important organ of our body. Since its main function is to chew the food properly so that it is easily digestible and we are able to absorb the nutrients. But with the preservatives in the junk food and poor oral hygiene, teeth tends to get easily infected resulting into cavities, which if neglected might lead to pain, gum problems, swelling and/or pus formation.
We, being adult, sometimes tend to tolerate any amount of pain or discomfort, but when it comes to our children we want the best and can't see them suffer at any cost.
Being a parent of a very stubborn child who doesn’t like to brush, I know how difficult it is to get the child to brush and maintain clean teeth. Having faced the consequences of neglecting child’s oral hygiene, I have realized how important it is to maintain good oral habits.
As each problem requires a specialist, our teeth too need to be treated by a specialist; a dentist. In a city like Mumbai where there is a clinic or hospital at every nook and corner, we want the best for our child. So finding a good dentist in Mumbai is necessary, when it comes to trusting our child’s well-being in their hands.
Usually we parents consult any doctor based on referrals by fellow parents or by our family doctors or any family member or acquaintance. But before we take our child to any dental clinic, we need to know the panel of doctors available, whether there are special paediatric dentist available for our kids, how good are they in handling kids, etc.
We just don’t trust our child into anybody’s hands, because in some cases it become necessary for the child need to be treated not by normal dentist but by dentist who is specialized and trained in handling kids who have different temperament than elders.
Since kids are more sensitive to the surrounding environment, I have seen dental clinics in Mumbai paying attention to décor and creating an environment, so that a child feels comfortable while waiting for his/her turn. Because usually when kids hear the word “Doctor” they tend to get nervous and scared. But when they see setup of the clinic with their favorite cartoon characters, toys etc., they tend to loosen up a bit and treating them and building up a rapport becomes easy.
So now finding information about any dentist in Mumbai for your kid is just a click away.
