    Delivered a baby boy under Dr.Ponni Sundar. Such a wonderful doctor to be under. The way she guided me throughout the 9 months was jus amazing and was totally stress free. Enjoyed right from the beginning. When i was admitted the staffs were even more supportive especially Sister Cheran Rani. She was so supportive and encouraged me throughout my labour. I never had the feeling that i was in the labour room. So relaxed and calm i felt. A lot of other staffs Amudha sister, Nadhiya sister, sreedevi sister,karthika sister to name a few, not sure of the other names were really sweet and nice. Hats off to the excellent hospitality provided by the entire Kongunadu team HAMSICA.R Coimbatore
