I used Meena Shankar for my pg but through the NHS not privately. She was very good, I had twins, she was kind and patient with all my endless questions and worries. But I mostly saw her at Roehampton (Queen Mary's) not at Kingston, which was more of a drive and a bit annoying! She was sadly sick on the day of their birth but did pop in and see me on the ward the next day.

Meena Shankar delivered my dd1 on the NHS when she was a senior reg 4 years ago. She was fantastic. I had a high risk pregnancy and did special scans on me antenatally and hten happened to be the reg on duty during much of my v. long induction process which ended in a c-sec. She always made me feel like I was in control (which I probably wasn't) eg. allowed me to make the decision when to stop the induction and go for c-sec. She was also v. keen on dd1 staying with me and not being whisked off unless aboslutely necessary. People (MWs that is - I didn't flash it to too many people) also commented on how neat my c-sec scar was.

If I had been able to choose second time I would have chosen her no doubt.

FWIW - I also had good experience of Mr Chou/Chau. He's lovely.

Second time round (March this yr) I had a locum consultant who was also v. good but I assume she doesn't do private work out of kingston.
