As I sit here penning this message I can’t help but look back at how far this conception, we named ‘Conceive’ has come! Dr. Pankaj Shrivastav is a name which is given much respect and regard in not just the country but even globally and when he set out in 2004 to establish Conceive, it was his well-wishers who gave him strength to do so. Today, 10 years later, Conceive has been responsible for the birth of over 2700 babies and we, the team, know we owe it all to our well-wishers and supporters whose faith in us has been unwavering and resilient. Exciting times lie ahead as the Conceive family grows into a new branch in Jumeirah Lake Towers (JLT) Dubai and of course our first (of many I hope) newsletter! Read on to see what our doctors are up-to and exciting research that is happening on a daily basis at Conceive. You’ll hear from us again in the New Year and till then we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperity filled 2015!
