IVF in India

Hi I'm 51 and I'm having Ivf with donor eggs in India.The clinic is fantastic and the doctors and staff provide caring ,personal treatment. Sadly,I had an ectopic with twins in March,but my partner and I are returning soon because we know they will give us the baby we long for.The clinic's success rates are amazing and are delivering many babies for couples all over the world through surrogacy,so I know they are great at what they do.They have a Facebook page and have interviews with ABC and CNN.IVF is also a lot cheaper than the UK and the packages include everything from drugs to scans and treatment.I have a friend from NZ who had failed IVF attempts in NZ,Spain and got pregnant on her first attempt in India and her twins are now 9months old.Please feel free to ask me any questions,cos I know how hard this journey can be x

Hi Feliz

Can you please say which clinic you recommend? I've looked into Corion in Mumbai and met one of the doctors while she was visiting the UK. I've also been in communication with a Dr Ajjar and a Dr Nayna Patel? The later was the one who featured in Google Baby. However, I've heard accommodation is mega expensive in Mumbai. I'd be really grateful if you can advise which clinic you recommend. Time is not on my side anymore, particularly in light of my recent diagnosis.

Many thanks.

While we wait for Feliztjb to reply, I'll let you know what research I've done. It's quite detailed so I'll summarise.

I looked at various clinics in India. Nayna Patel who was the doc on google baby has good feedback, but she's in Gujarat which is an hour's internal flight from an international airport, so whilst I have her in mind, I then looked at others in Mumbai. Dr Ajjar - and I'll have to check my old emails had v god feedback and he even gave me contact details for other UK citizens who'd used his clinic. I contacted some of them and 2 responded. Both gave glowing references and one couple went into great detail even to the extent of telling me practical points.

I then found a website called oneinsix (site not endorsed by FZ) where a couple in London invite other potential surrogates who wish to go to India, who have had both their children through a surrogate. Very nice couple and in fact their next invitation to invite couples to their house is in Jan sometime. We went and also had an opportunity to talk to one of the doctors from the Corion clinic who the couple have got to know and she came to their house. I was a bit concerned about going to a strangers couple's house but it was fine and they were v genuine and basically they genuinely want to help other couples who are facing surrogacy.

So, so far Dr Ajjar seems a possible for me or the Corion clinic.

I also got in touch with some lawyers for advice on the formal parental order process. One firm in Cornwall took the mick with fees, whereas a central London law firm's fees were really reasonable and they help you through the whole process and the first consultation is free.

That's as far as I've got. The London couple got one of their babies from Dr Patel and one from the Corion clinic. They also help you through the process and give guidance and dont ask for any fees. If you formally want their help ie escort to India they will ask for their flight and expenses to be paid but I don't think you would need that much assistance and should be able to manage travel and accomomodation etc yourself. I think they simply offer that service for ppl who may be totally scared of going to India and needing a personal escort to guide them through each and every step. If your a seasoned traveller you should be able to manage this yourself.

Everyone I've said here is based on my own research and meetings with these ppl. I don't recommend or endorse it myself and whilst I may end up using one of these clinics, members should do their own research and be totally satisfied. I can however recommend the London law firm.

Hi,
Thought an update may help. For UK parents, legal Surrogacy is possible in India, Georgia and Cyprus. Clinics vary greatly with success rates, ethics and the amount of support you're given, so definitely do your research. Importantly, a clinic may have great results but if they change their IVF team/Dr's, it may no longer be the case, so check the recent parent references. The agency 'Feliz' mentions is a well known US based medical Tourism company who received a lot of press- but have a known reputation in India. They have been affiliated with several of the high profile clinics including Kiran, Dr Patel and Rotunda- all of whom now refuse to be associated with them. To my knowledge they also charge a fee to assist you.
Some of the clinics allow the surrogates to live at home with their own families, whilst others keep the surrogates in accommodation for the duration of the pregnancy. This may influence your decision on whom you feel comfortable proceeding with.
Being accepted for surrogacy can depend on your marital status and sexuality ( Dr Patel for instance does not accept Gay couples/singles). Each of the clinics vary and whilst there are some clinics that you should absolutely steer clear of, others are genuinely fabulous. So research is essential and don't trust just one reference recommending a sole clinic- everyone's favourite clinic is the one they got their baby from- and some parents are offered commission to act as references. Circumstances at the clinic may have changed since they had their surrogacy baby, so it's also a good idea to speak to some parents whose surrogate is recently pregnant.
