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 :)
