    My wife and I recently delivered our fifth child with Miss Arafa as our consulting obstetrician at the Portland Hospital in London. We had been planning to have the baby at home, and given that it was our fifth child, we expected things to go pretty smoothly. What we had not counted on was going overdue, which we did, by two weeks, and that necessitated labour induction. We reached out to Miss Arafa at the very last minute (over the Easter holiday), and she was incredibly accommodating, and agreed to see us immediately and despite not having ever seen my wife as a patient prior to 42 weeks, she agreed to take her on. Her level of expertise and experience was extremely comforting to us, and her care and compassion was extremely evident. She approached the entire process as a “team” effort, engaging my wife and I in every decision made during the entire induction and delivery. I do not have words to recommend Miss Arafa highly enough.

    Dr. Arafa is an excellent and very professional doctor with wonderful bedside manners. She held my hand during very difficult fertility issues and has been there for me every time that I have needed her. She is very responsive to her patients queries and listens to their concerns. In addition, she provides a great level of guidance. She definitively goes the extra mile to help her patients. Since I move to the UK from the US, she has been there for me and is very open to other medical views and options. I highly recommend doctor' Arafa's services.

    I went to Dr. Aliaa Arafa at the Portland Hospital for Women and Children when I first found out that I was pregnant. Dr. Arafa took the time to answer all the questions and to listen to all my concerns that I was having with the pregnancy, and she asked thorough questions about my history. She is straight to the point, nice, friendly, and made me feel very comfortable.
