I want to access some of my files saved in WD drive which is not detected by my MacBook Pro. Is it possible to retrieve data from any software or do I need to go for professional data recovery services?

Are you able to see your drive in Finder or desktop? If not, search your drive in Disk utility and use Data recovery software to extract the files.

Also try below fixes before using Data Recovery software:

  1. Use different USB port to see if you Mac can read the drive
  2. Uninstall HD Driver to fix WD issue
