    Dr Savvidou has been absolutely wonderful throughout my pregnancy, during the delivery and the postnatal care. I wanted a natural birth and she was very respectful of my choices but still making sure that my little one and I are safe at all times.

    Dr. Savvidou was my first choice when I found out I was pregnant. She was recommended to me by fellow colleagues who had a very good experience . From the beginning Dr. Savvidou took great care of me and my baby. Although my pregnancy was a bit bumpy at the beginning she showed concern and support and with her care we reached a full term. As a doctor myself I felt very anxious knowing of multiple possible complications but Dr. Savvidou with her lovely approach, attitude and outmost professionalism put my mind at ease and my whole journey with her could not have been any better. I will surely refer back to Dr. Savvidou for further pregnancies If I wish to expand my family even more !

    I delivered my twins in October 2021 with Mina, and can’t recommend her enough. She is very professional and knowledgeable, but at the same time is very personable. Mina has a data-driven approach and when giving an advice, provides arguments for both sides of the story, helping make an objective decision. She is very approachable and was always responsive to all my questions throughout the pregnancy. Highly recommend!

    Dr Savvidou is very knowledgeable, friendly, caring and kind. I was under her care at Kensington Wing for monitoring of my pregnancy and had a Csection recently. She was always very responsive during my pregnancy with any queries I had. I was very anxious before the Csection and she reassured me and I felt at ease in her capable hands. Procedure went smoothly with no complications. I highly recommend her and I would certainly choose her as my Consultant if I were to have another baby.

    Mina was so wonderful during my twin pregnancy. She was very responsive to any question or concern that I had, even outside of working hours. When any potential issue arose she made herself immediately available to see me. Her clear explanations were also extremely helpful. All and all, this made me feel very reassured even when I was scared or worried. I am very grateful to have had Mina as my doctor and would highly recommend her for any one else.

    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!
