AYAAN DINESH Hyderabad, AP www.ventusmediaproductions.com +91 99592 85554 With Compliments …a thanks note from a 16 days old baby boy- Ayaan Dear Priyanka aunty, “A birth is used metaphorically to refer to a beginning, especially of a NATURAL phenomenon, one that is impressive in its scope or complexity, or one that is viewed favorably”- this is what my dad believes. Philosophy apart, a mom is blessed when she has a smooth and a healthy delivery...But the doula’s role is inevitable, how much ever the mom is blessed. At this point I have to mention heart full of thanks to you Priyanka aunty, your role was fabulous in my mom’s delivery and you made it with at most ease. In addition, my dad would have missed such an exciting moment without your support; it was such a poignant hours for him (I’m sure!) which will last through out our life… No words can describe my parents’ contentment. infact ours!!! Last but not the least, thanks for all the support and motivation you gave dad n mom throughout the months, especially the last few days…my mom told me that she did it for my dad..Finally the whole thing mixed together made the delivery a success, a NATURAL success. Great going Priyanka aunty!!! Best wishes for all your future endeavors. Good luck and thank you once again. Regards, Ayaan
Priyanka's Lamaze class was really informative. The expectant parents will definitely obtain deep knowledge about pregnancy and delivery. She taught us the pain management and breathing techniques during labor. The diets that she prescribes are really safe for the baby and mother. The labor positions and stretching exercises helped me a lot. She will be totally free so that you could ask any doubts and moreover she is extremely sincere to her job. I was 100% satisfied in my class.
The classes were Very good, informative, confidence booster. As we progressed through the classes, My partner is more involved in the pregnancy and related care. Also, I feel I don't need anybody else's help at the time of delivery except for the doctor and nurse if he is there with me. This was not the case in my 1st pregnancy, this time I feel more empowered
The parental classes made us feel ready together, informed together, stronger together. 'Ishaan Hart Singh' born 18th January 2010 at 2:28pm. "Dear Priyanka, Many thanks for your precious help before, during and after my arrival into this world." With love from Ishaan and my mummy and daddy,Cristelle & Ravi.
"The classes we attended were very informative, helped us in building confidence towards a natural birth"
"The classes we attended were very informative and was an eye opener.Lot of 'wow'moments and it was very encouraging and empowering experience for us.We also loved the video sessions." LIFE WITH THE BABY Going to be a month since we were blessed with the tiny li'l dude, Daniel. The dude has kept us busy with the diaper changing sessions & the "long" hours of sleep... Just wanted to thank Priyanka who with her classes & lively talks helped us deal with the whole experience much more comfortably.Her Lamaze sessions helped dispel a lot many doubts and helped us deal with the whole process in a much more confident manner. Needless to say, lot of you will ask as to what the big deal is..(especially the elder and experienced folks!)Frankly, how often have we had our parents actually tell us about what to expect and how to go about dealing with stuff during this phase??? All we get to hear is a mixed & really awesome range of superstitions & traditions as to which none is sure of as to why we follow them. All we need is a clear picture of what to expect and what to do.. downrightpractical.. no messing around with the whole natural downright beautiful process of giving birth! Thanks again, Priyanka... hope the birth village makes its mark in a big way!We intend to come down and meet you once the dude is allowed out of the house!!! :) Aff'ly, Marilyn & Joe

We really appreciated her enthusiasm, professionalism and warmth. We felt very comfortable with her and would definitely recommend her to our friends." my doula, my life saver, i m sure, we will have a gr8 time inside the labour room ;-) (will be posting our experience inside the labour room very soon :-)
Priyanka is one of those rare people who firmly believe in the cause they support and goes any length to give her unwavering support .Her classes were highly informative and played a major role in making us aware of all aspects of pregnancy, delivery and even baby care. This awareness translated into confidence when we dealt with doctors and even family members with their own â€œexpert opinionsâ€. Her dedication is contagious and that was what kept us going during uncertain and difficult times. We can confidently say that we had â€œa perfect birth experienceâ€, with almost no intervention from the doctors. Our experience has been an eye opener to many around us who now fully agree that itâ€™s best to let nature take its course, with something so beautiful as childbirth. Priyanka, this is our heartfelt testimonial to thank you for all you have done for us, knowing fully well that we wouldnâ€™t have achieved what we did, without your unwavering help and support. Thankyou so much!!! Deepa & Gejo, Proud parents to baby girl Isabella
Thank you Priyanka for the beautiful nature birth we experienced. The women you serve are truly blessed to have you. I remember coming in for the classes with the hopes to get rid of my fear of pain during natural birth. I must say u did a great job. And being there for all our doubts, making us understand what actually happens through Caesarean (phew, i never knew all that). Making me and Vimal strong mentally and physically throughout the way, Helping us choose a wonderful hospital, doctor. All the credit goes to you. With the support and encouragement of my dear hubby Vimal WHO WAS WITH ME THROUGH OUT, my little boy Joshua , my mom-in law Moly, prayers of papa, mummy George and Celine and YOU- PRIYANKA. we did a great job. And we are so thankful to you for the post natal support too :) We would surely recommend you to all our expecting friends and relatives .. I wonder where you get all that energy from :) And i loved the Egyptian belly dance sessions ;) Love & Gratitude Vimal, Remi & Joshua ... [IBS Software Services]
"The classes by Priyanka were very informative and made us aware of what to expect. It even helped me go through the pain for days and yet opt for natural delivery."
Wanted to write lots more.... ------------------ What we learnt at Birthvillage turned our idea of pregnancy and delivery on its head. Pregnancy is one topic everyone seems to have an opinon on. But if you have the right information, you can gift yourself nine months of fun. That is what the course is about. Thanks to Priyanka, four hospitals and four doctors later, we were blessed with the most amazing birth experience. Her confidence seeps into you and you are ready to face whatever comes your way. With Priyanka as our doula, labour and delivery was WOW! You may be overwhelmed and bogged down, but you will never doubt yourself if you have this lady in the labour room. The breastfeeding and infant care classes are a plus. You can show off what you know as soon as the little one arrives. Maya has also been of great help. The course is highly recommended for any Mommy and Daddy who want their darlings to get the best. Lots of love Jan, Mathew and Olive
Get pregnant, have the baby—that was as far as Maijo and I knew about pregnancy and childbirth. But at Birth Village, we learnt about stuff that had never even crossed our minds. Having left the fate of our labour and childbirth in the hands of doctors, we thought we had done our bit. Honestly, if it wasn’t for Priyanka, labour would have been a nightmare for me. Or for that matter, I would have landed up on the operating table! Priyanka’s classes not just helped us understand what childbirth was all about and how to be prepared for the best and the worst, it also helped us get ready for the biggest day of our lives— the birth of our daughter, Meghna. I would like to add that no pregnant woman and her husband should underestimate the power of childbirth education. Don’t fall for the “You are not the first woman to have a baby, so why the classes?” argument. You need to get educated and there are no two ways about it. Trust Priyanka to help you. That’s what we did and thank god we did! Our heartfelt thanks, Priyanka! Nina Nair (Freelance Content Writer) Maijo Abraham (Senior Sub-Editor, The Week) Cheers! :)
"Classes were an eye opener with reference to many aspects related to pregnancy . Your breast feeding classes have definitely been a driving force for me to encourage my baby to breast feed despite difficulty intitally. Loved the Exercise sessions , especially the belly dance sessions" Ritu Mohan Chandran Prasanth Rajan Frigstad Offshore Engineering at Singapore
"Midwifery care is mother and baby friendly, within a short period of time we developed a comfort level with the midwife which encouraged us to clear all our doubts with her. Glad that I chose waterbirth. Pool was relaxing, refreshing! I just loved it."
"A great surprise! After shopping around, talking with midwives, I took the chance of coming to b!rthvillage, without knowing what to expect, and found just what I needed."
"We received one-on-one personalized attention and care which was reassuring to first time parents like us. Kathy, Red, and Priyanka ensured that all our doubts and questions were answered in detail and to our satisfaction. At the end of every visit we left in good spirits and with a positive attitude."
Priyanka ia a warm and passionate godmother to ever so many new borns. Takes a lot if pride in her work and thus is what brings in the much needed comfort to nervous mothers to be!
What to say about Ms. Priyanka Idicula… I have interacted with her with regards to the birth, her stories are so inspiring and she makes me feel that giving birth is not painful but you can live the whole moment in ectascy . I am still single, but I have decided that when I become pregnant I will surely come to her and to give birth in a different with passion.
Priyanka has been inspiring so many women in Kerala, through her work of educating and helping mothers give birth.
they helped to realise my inner strengths as a woman-mother…. this vote is for their dedication, love, care, and hard work
I have never seen a woman so commited to a cause like Priyanka…. Way to go, girl, n hope you win!
