“Doctor Savvidou is a fabulous Doctor! I delivered both my babies with her and the quality of her care was exceptional. She is extremely knowledgeable, understanding and available. Even if I am the kind of patient who asks 1000 questions, often 10 times the same ones and who overthinks everything, she always made the time available for me, happily answered all my concerns and gave me confidence and reassurance during the pregnancy and the actual birth. Her PA Louise is so kind, gentle and supportive and she would always be available to help! Doctor Savvidou also is extremely reactive and will always make sure to respond to you or call you in no time, always ensuring you are happy and under the best care possible. On top of being an excellent Doctor, she is also a very lovely person. I almost want a 3rd child now :) thank you for making my dream come true!“

    Dr Makrina Savvidou was a wonderful obstetrician providing very attentive care during our pregnancy. She monitored our baby very carefully and provided constant support with any questions we might have had. She did a great job of creating a safe space for us and putting us at ease throughout the pregnancy and especially during the delivery.

    Mina is very knowledgeable but approachable at the same time. She gave me excellent care during my pregnancy and was on hand during very anti social hours for the birth, when she gave very clear and calm advice about the interventions I needed for a safe delivery.

    Dr Savvidou delivered our three daughters over the past 8 years. She is an excellent consultant - her knowledge, advice, support and care throughout my three pregnancies and deliveries have been exceptional. Her calm and confident approach as well as bedside manner have always been very reassuring. I would always recommend her without hesitation.

    We are lucky enough that both our children have been delivered by Mina. Pregnancy and childbirth can be highly daunting times and Mina’s expertise, understanding and compassion prove invaluable. We would highly recommend Mina and the team at the Kensington Wing.

    I could not recommend Dr. Savvidou more! Mina always found the time to see me when I needed, and I never felt rushed - even when I had my list of questions. Mina and her lovely PA Louise always responded to my queries very quickly. Mina is such a calm presence and made me feel relaxed all the way through my pregnancy and on the day of my c-section.

    After several years of trying to conceive, getting pregnant felt like a miracle. This led us search for the best consultant and care that we can. Meeting Dr Savvidou was the best thing that could have happened! Her approach, attentiveness and care were second to none. Her nice and calm attitude eased my anxieties and definitely helped me have a much smoother pregnancy period. She responded very quickly to all my questions and concerns, and I felt secure and very well looked after throughout my pregnancy. She is also a great surgeon. I have opted for an elective c-section and the operation went very smoothly. She visited me every day after the operation to check how the baby and I were doing which I'll always be very grateful for. I feel very lucky to have met Dr Savvidou and we can't thank her enough for everything that she's done for us during our journey.

    Dr Davvidou provided excellent care, advice and support during my pregnancy. Always there to help me through any issues and her professional experience made me at ease from day one. Mina also connects with her patients on a personal level which is very important in my opinion, especially when dealing with hormonal and over-worrying pregnant ladies :)

    I was lucky enough to have Mina as my consultant for my second child. I was not a straight forward case and Mina was able to make everything always feel normal while still making me comfortable that there was someone with so much experience and expertise taking care of us. I couldn't have felt in better hands for my labour and delivery and it all went smoothly largely because of Mina. It was also a pleasure to see her and be welcomed by smiles for every visit.

    Dr Savvidou led my antenatal care and delivered my twins at 35 weeks via emergency C section. The operation went very well and my recovery was very quick. The level of care I received was outstanding and Dr Savvidou made me feel in safe hands at all times. The whole process was seamless and without complications. We very much appreciated not only her professionalism and her forthright manners but also her holistic approach to patient-centred care (including babies of course). My husband (a consultant physician) and I are extremely pleased with our experience and would warmly recommend Dr Savvidou to anyone, especially high risk and twin/multiple pregnancy.

    I felt at ease and surprisingly relaxed during the births of both my children primarily due to the trust and faith I had in Dr. Savvidou. She is excellent, very thorough and explains everything clearly, which is something I needed.

    We have felt very comfortable in Mina’s care throughout the whole pregnancy. She has spent a considerable amount of time with us, we’ve done all our scans with her and she’s always taken the time to explain our options with an evidence based approach. We ended up having a c-section that went very well for both mum and baby. I would definitely recommend her care.

    Mina was my consultant for my first baby. She is very qualified, and inspired a lot of confidence in my being able to get through the pregnancy and birth. Her manner is great as well, very friendly and personable but still professional, which was the perfect balance for me. Even though my baby's heartbeat was a bit irregular during delivery, she waited to see if a normal delivery was possible and we were able to get there safely. She was also very responsive throughout my pregnancy to any questions and doubts I had. I am very grateful for her expert handling of my delivery, and would thoroughly recommend her to everyone.
