From Argentina: A big thank you from "a full family".

Dear Dr. Shivani, SCI Team,

Eden Hospital’s NICU staff and mainly Our “Angel” Surrogate Mother:

Never is too late to THANK YOU for making us parents after a long and difficult path, here we are to express A BIG THANK YOU to a BIG Team, that is behind this happy ending story, a team led by Dr Shivani:

-SCI staff (Admin  & Nurses) and the whole team who is involved in the process who showed at all times so much professionalism. During the pregnancy, the way they kept us updated, and every single email was replied when we had any inquiry, everything was straight forward …they showed at all times comforting empathy throughout the process.

It is worth mentioning that behind this great and well organized team there is a supportive leader who knows exactly what and how to meet our expectations, without her experience and professionalism this train called SCI would not move forward…she is the one who pulls this big train: Dr Shivani – THANK YOU for trusting in us, for being honest and straight forward on our first visit but mainly thanks for accepting our decision and to respect it.

After birth, the NICU staff at Eden Hospital showed the best professionalism and it is incredible how careful they are with the babies taking all the necessary precautions.

Once on the “real role play of being parents”: A special thanks to Mrs. Mariamma and her team of nurses  for assisting us in our first few weeks as parents, giving us tips and reassuring us when we did not know exactly what to do, helping us to sleep…during the nights…giving us the confidence to do it on our own.

Last but not the least…the main Protagonist of this story…”Our Angel” Now that we hold our babies it is hard to express in words how thankful we are to our angel, as we call our SM.

From the first time we knew these two little persons were growing in her belly, she became part of your day-to-day thoughts and prayers. She is the most beautiful and generous person, meeting her after the birth of the babies gave us peace to our souls to be able to thank her in person for letting us be parents … though the language was a barrier but I could confirmed there that words sometimes are not needed…the message was clear…she understood what our hugs and smiles towards her and our eyes full of tears meant…and even though time pass by I still remember the precise moment that …me and her together…I was holding my babies that she carried for me for 9 months…We are full family and we owe it to her…

Finally, we would also like to thank other IP (Intended Parents) who have come part of our lives while expecting some of them through the forum, which was our way to share with them because we were all on the same boat, and also other IP from our country who helped us in shortening the process.

We feel so lucky and overwhelmed to finally have our babies at home… and we wish everyone success on their journey.

For those who are considering Surrogacy let me tell you… the first step is always the most difficult one… but is possible….and most difficult is to believe that this time is YOUR time and that finally it will happen…but for once, you have to believe it, it is just a matter of, for once, believing that things finally can also happen to YOU as well…and soon a baby will be giggling in your home…

With kind regards and for ever thankful,

A full family from Argentina.

From the U.S : twins making dreams come true

Another family completed, this time from Washington

We had been trying to have children for 8 years when we discovered SCI on the Internet, looking for another option that would make us parents.  We talked with Dr. Shivani and her staff remotely before deciding that surrogacy through SCI was the right path for us.   

When we went to India for the beginning of the process, we were very impressed with the SCI facilities we saw.  We met Dr. Shivani and her staff, who made us feel welcome and confident that the journey we were embarking upon would be successful, and it was.  Our surrogate become pregnant with twins on the first try! Our little boy and girl were born in India eight months later.  Now we have them at home and they are five months old.  They are growing quickly, laughing and interacting with us every day.  We are so happy to have our babies!  We wish we had known about Dr. Shivani earlier, but we’re so happy to have found her.

Do not give up. SCI can make your dreams come true.  We are so thankful and happy!  Thank you to everyone at SCI.

Warm regards, E and S, Washington DC, USA

From Canada (via South Africa): a baby girl

After many years, such joy...

A 15-year roller coaster of hopes, wishes, treatments, disappointments, pain and dashed expectations – all were frozen in time on September 8, 2014, at the moment we first laid eyes on Holly Louise, our perfect, miracle baby girl.  We are truly in awe of the tiny person who has blessed our lives and the lives of all around us. 

We are humbled by the pure kindness and sacrifice of our dear surrogate SD and to the full SCI team, who patiently and quickly answered repeated questions at all hours over the past year – and we are indebted to Dr. Shivani – a doctor from a far away place who has done what many others tried - and who has made our dreams come true, giving us a beautiful child with a unique story to tell.

Never enough thank yous,

Tanya-Lisa, Garreth and Holly
Canada (via South Africa)

From Australia: two beautiful princesses ...

 Much loved and wanted children ....

10 weeks ago and now... they grow quickly

an enormous thankyou for sticking by us over the past few years and for delivering to us, Jemimah and Audrey, are prized possessions.
As you will recall, there were times along the way we seriously questioned whether fate had chosen for us a future without children. This of course was not acceptable to Dr Shavani. It was therefore your relentless faith, positive reinforcement and generosity we hung in there and are now blessed our two adorable (slightly biased!).
We have heard experiences of other couples accessing surrogacy in India, Thailand and the USA and are so grateful in our decision to choose and remain with SCI Healthcare. None of these couples had anywhere close to the direct relationship with their doctor(s) which we enjoyed with Dr Shavani or a standby support team in the wings. In this regard, we would specifically like to highlight and thank Jyoti, Nabanita and Lalit – we are still amazed with how promptly and compressively they were always able to respond of our endless questions.

And of course shone of this would have occurred without our wonderful surrogate, Namita to whom Audrey's shares her middle name. We look forward to staying in touch with Namita, through SCI.
We have now been back in Australia almost 2 1/2 months and we are absolutely cherishing every day with our beautiful daughters and can't imagine our lives without them. 

Very kind regard’s
Joe and Craig

From Australia: a POSITIVE story from WA

It is lovely to have families think about others

With all of the negative Surrogacy press here in Australia and particularly Western Australia I thought that I would send you a note to thank everyone at SCI for a thoroughly honest, professional service. 

Without you, our darling 18mth princess would not be the joy to her older brother or the light and centre of our universe. We have to stop and pinch ourselves and remind ourselves of how lucky WE are to have used SCI and to have her in our life,

From the UK: Generations of family rejoice after 11 years of waiting...

Their words say enough...

Dear Dr Shivani and Team,
First and foremost, thank-you so much for making our dreams come true – our boy and girl, born in April, through the help and support from SCI.

Just like a lot of couples, we had a long journey and an 11 year wait to get to this stage.  We approached many clinics in the UK and across the globe and unfortunately faced one disappointment after another, with failed IVF cycles. 
Approaching SCI was our final call and when our first cycle failed, we were devastated.  However, the professionalism shown by you, Dr Shivani, and your team convinced us to try again, with the result being our precious twins.

Thank-you once again, for all that you’ve done to make this possible.  A big thank-you also to our beautiful surrogate.  SCI is a quality clinic and the support provided to us both during the pregnancy and to this day, whilst we’re here in India waiting for passports for our babies, has been superb!

Whilst we’ve been over the moon with our precious twins, our whole family has been overjoyed.  

Here are a few words from the grandparents, who haven’t stopped smiling:

From Dadi and Dada,
Dr Shivani – thank-you for giving us hope through our new grandchildren to continue to fight our illnesses and face another day.  We’re so grateful to have this new light in our lives.  Thank-you so much!

From Nani and Nana,
Words cannot express how much these grandchildren mean to us.  We have longed to see them for 11 years!  Thank-you Dr Shivani for making this possible and bringing so much happiness into our lives.

From Canada: a fan moment for Dr. Shivani meeting one of her heros Dr Togas TULANDI

From Canada: Dr Togas TULANDI took a lecture a CME Program today in Delhi. I have read Dr TULANDI's papers and also quoted his papers in some of my lectures in India and I told him it was such an honour for me to meet him in person, I told him I have treated Canadian patients for surrogacy and Dr TULANDI says: Oh! Are you the INDIAN doctor for my patient Mrs X? Her twins were born with your help?

Wow it was an awesome feeling! I had treated one of his patients with surrogacy and indeed she is a proud mum of twins!!
Dr TULANDI then asked for a picture with me to show Mrs X back in Canada 
( PS Mrs X and the twins have touched so many lives....their surrogate mum's life and mine in such a beautiful way and brought the world closer, just awesome and win win win all around:)))

and from the common patient

Oh my goodness! Absolutely thrilled to see the two Doctors, from opposite sides of the world, that brought us the hope, encouragement and medical expertise needed to finally achieve our family, sitting together 

Dr. Tulandi never gave up on us and actually encouraged us to look at other options such as Surrogacy. He supported our decision to go to India and was so excited to learn of our success, to hear about our experience and to see pictures of our beautiful twins. 

We are honoured to hear that we touched your life Dr. Shivani. God certainly blessed us when we followed our hearts to you, your team and our Surrogate in India. The world certainly is a small place!

From the U.K: A daughter and the adventure is just beginning

As with most of our families, once a complicated fertility history filled their lived, but now they are focuses on their future with their daughter...

With the help of our surrogate, egg donor, SCI, Eden Hospital and many more, on the 11 June, just a little bit earlier than we expected, we were able to start a new chapter in our lives when our daughter, Eloise, was born.

All life stories tend towards starting at from birth, but if you speak to anyone else who has had or is trying for a child you will know that having a child is not as simple as it seems on the surface. Though our story is, as most people who have done or are considering surrogacy, complicated in some way, it’s true to say that now we have our daughter and the focus is no longer on the past but on the future.

That said, there are some big thank you’s that need to be said. The first and most important is to our families. To our first surrogate in India and especially to our last who carried Eloise for 8 months and has gone through so much to make our dreams come true and secure her children’s future. To our Indian egg donor who made it possible. To all the staff at Eden Hospital who cared for Eloise during her first tentative days. Lastly but not leastly to Dr Shivani and all the staff at SCI who acted as the glue on our India journey, working with the surrogacy agency, and many more to make sure that the adventure of starting a family was as smooth as possible.

Of course there are many more people we would like to thank and though not an endless list it would go on for quite a few pages – thinking of you all.

At the time of writing, Eloise is but only two weeks old and her adventure is just beginning. The first step is to get back home, though India will always hold a special place in all our hearts.

David, Szu & Eloise

Big kid update from India : Now we are one !

It is always lovely to receive an update from our SCI family, and here is another...

Dear SCi Health Care Team and Dr Shivani,

As we celebrate the first birthday of the twins we remember you all very fondly
The girls are very active and very intelligent for their age.
Thanks you very much for everything,

Grateful parents

This letter from DADIMA

 Almighty God  is good. The blessings " DEBARSHI & RAJARSHI" my two sweet grandsons that He showered over our family on 8/6/2014 through Dr. Shivani & whole SCI team have given me new desire to live further at the end of my life.

My prayer to Shivani to extend her helping hands to each and every corner of the world to make the needy families like us to see their next generation and be happy with them so that their life become meaningful.
 Thanking Dr. Shivani for her every good qualities & SCI team as a whole I remain here.

From Australia:a little princess,much loved and adored

After years of failed infertility treatment, success and a beautiful baby girl...

Having just celebrated our tenth wedding anniversary, our very long journey began eight years ago.   With repeat miscarriages and failed IVF attempts, we refused to give up on our dream of becoming parents.  We investigated many avenues and we decided that surrogacy was our best option and that SCI was our first preference.  For us spiritually it felt right to choose an Indian surrogate. 

SCI also provided egg donor profiles and happy with this we chose a donor whose profile suited us.  We were all set to go pretty much straight away when our donor was delayed due to her study commitments.  Happy to wait for her and not opt for another donor, Maurice travelled to India in early May 2013.  The hospitality of the Indian people, SCI’s world class staff and facilities, the brilliant Dr Shivani and the wonderful driver Rahul and his team organised by SCI,  left a very positive and lasting impression on Maurice.  This week would not only be life changing for Maurice, it would be life creating for us as a family. 

Almost one year later, we were set to fly out to New Delhi on the 30th of April in anticipation of our baby’s expected arrival on the 9thof May.  Our first round of embryo transfers with two surrogates failed and this second time due to the ever changing laws, Dipkami was our sole surrogate.    Dipkami was now pregnant with our baby and we were thrilled to be on our way to meet them both!  

However, this was to be sooner than we expected as on the 17th of April we received an email that due to concerns with the baby having a double nuchal chord, our baby daughter had been delivered!  That was Good Friday, we were on a plane Easter Monday!  Our beautiful, healthy Quintessa Grace was born a day short of 37 weeks.  Quintessa was quite jaundiced and as a result stayed in hospital under photo therapy lights until it started to clear.  Quite symbolically for us as Australians, Quintessa came home to the hotel with us on Anzac Day April the 25th.  The care she received from the doctors and nurses at Eden hospital was not only world class but was combined with the wisdom and nurturing of the Indian culture and spirituality.

We were very happy and relieved that our wonderful surrogate Dipkami was recovering well and were thrilled to meet both she and her husband.  We gave them gifts to thank them and in the absence of a common language,  our display of emotions being universal were felt and understood.  That said no words would ever convey our sheer gratitude to Dipkami and absolute joy that she was healthy and well.  Dr Shivani was also there to congratulate us and it was wonderful to thank her and recognise her for all her hard work.

Also through SCI we engaged the services of Poonam Jain of Prime Air Global Ltd, who organised our documents for FRRO ensuring a swift turnaround with our visas.  Our dealings with FRRO, The Australian High Commission and Australian Passports Office were all pleasant and easy. 

From the time we arrived in New Delhi to the day we departed (a little over three weeks), we felt genuine support and care from by the SCI Team.  There was never a moment that we felt alone or that we could not call them for assistance or advice.  As first time parents in a foreign country, the importance of this cannot be emphasised enough.

We have been home now for a little over six weeks and have settled into our daily life.  Quintessa is developing as we would hope, with her weight and growth going forward in leaps and bounds.  Her feeding and sleeping routines are like clockwork, we feel truly blessed as so far she is a healthy, easy baby.  Quintessa is now smiling and cooing, she is an absolute delight and we are completely smitten!  Our families cannot get enough of their little princess and she is very loved and adored.

Thanks to SCI our dream of having a family has been realised and we hope to return to India in the near future so that Quintessa can see the magical land in which she was born.

Yours Sincerely and Forever Grateful,

Maurice, Angelique and Quintessa
