From the UK: dreams coming true with our baby boy

After many years on the infertility treadmill, many of our families know a miracle when they see one. Meet one such family...

"Our miracle baby, Jai, came into our family on Nov 16th and our lives changed forever. After much heartache and hardship, we came to see Dr. Shivani in the hope that we too could one day have the child that we have yearned for. 

Our journey started in February 2012 and in November we came to Delhi to be present at the much awaited birth of our child. We will never forget that precious moment when the doctor came in to tell us that we have a healthy baby boy. Jai is everything we dreamed of and more. He's made us complete. We've finally become mummy and daddy.

Miracles can happen, it's happened for can happen for you.

We look forward to the years ahead as Jai grows, develops and becomes a respectable gentleman in his own right.

Thank you Dr. Shivani and all the team at SCI who made our dream come true. Thank you to our surrogate who will always have a special, respected place in our hearts.

Jazz & Harj. UK."

From the U.S :- a handsome chap

The best of Christmas blessings, a handsome chap to complete this family. Congratulations Greg & Lewis, may the coming years bring you much joy, laughter and happiness.
We knew this wasn't going to be the easiest thing in the world to do,
but that has never stopped us before. After 21 years together, we
decided that it was high time to start a family. We thought (and
fough)t about adoption. We tried luring a wayward niece to come live
with us to no avail.

We knew something was really missing in our lives. Our good friends in
San Francisco suggested we contact SCI Healthcare. They had a
beautiful baby girl and by all accounts was just perfect.

Nine months ago we arrived in Delhi- shell shocked from the flight,
but ready to start the process. The first try with frozen sperm was
unsuccessful. Dr. Shivani suggested we come back for a live transfer.
We did to great success.

The months passed quicker than I had expected and we once again found
ourselves in Delhi and in the capable hands of SCI. Our baby was
actually born while we were in the air. When we arrived at the
nursery, we looked around and spotted the most beautiful little baby
boy. I know that was ours.

Due to a delay, we had to stay in India a little longer than planned,
but now that we are home, everything is A-OK. Our little boy is happy,
healthy and a handful.

For those of you thinking of doing this, I can tell you their success
rate is very high. I would also suggest that you stay in the nicest
hotels as possible if you are used to nice hotels when traveling. The
Leela Palace, The Frasier Suites (apartments) and the Lalit were
standouts. It helps that there is a very quiet place to go home to,
where the food is excellent and the amenities are many.

Also, DO opt for the nurse program. For about $38US per day you get
round the clock care. This was vital for us as our nurse taught us so
much. (We miss her!!!!)

Thank you Dr. Shivani and your entire staff. While things did not go
100% as planned in our over-organized American minds, in the end, it
was perfect.

Introducing our best Christmas gift ever:
Born November 19, 2012
7lbs. 22"

All the best, Lewis and Greg

From Australia: Proud Pappa's and their boys

A traditional story, a couple meet, fall in love and now they have the " happily ever after"...

Dearest Dr Shivani and team SCI,
After so many years of dreaming of starting a family, you helped make our dreams come true.
You and your team guided us through every step of the process with such professionalism, love and care.
Your ISIS clinic, new born hospital and all your programs are of the highest standards, and in our view world leading.
Finding words to express how grateful we feel is very difficult, but you must know that you have brought much joy and happiness to our family and that we are deeply thankful for what you have done for us.

We must especially thank our wonderful surrogate whom carried our beautiful and healthy twin boys through to 36 weeks. She is such a kind hearted and inspiring woman whom we will always keep very close to our hearts for the gift she has given us.
A special mention al to Lalit, Rachna, Neha and Yogita whom were always available to help us and answer our many questions. We must also thank all the wonderful nursing staff at Eden New Born Hospital whom took such good care of our boys.
So a BIG THANK YOU to all of you we are eternally grateful and overjoyed to be leaving India with Felix and Matteo and now the family we always dreamed of!
Daniel, Andrew, Matteo and Felix
We wish Daniel, Andrew and the gorgeous Matteo & Felix the choicest of blessing and life filled with laughter, light and happiness.

From Europe: low ovarian reserve and twins!

One of the challenges faced by many parents is the dreaded low ovarian reserve and whether to try with a self cycle or move on to donor eggs.

At SCI, we always want people to be aware of all the factors that will likely impact on their chances of success so that they can make an informed decision on the best way forward for their family.

This family, after years of infertility treatment in their home country, wanted one last try with their eggs...

Dear Dr. Shivani, dearest M., SCI Healthcare Team, Meg and Margarida, Doctors and Nurses at Eden Hospital and Mariamma’s Nanny-team!

We are the happiest people in the woooooooooooorld!!!!!

Somos feliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiizes!

Our twin babies were born at the end of October here in Delhi and we want to thank you all from our hearts to have helped make this possible by your work and dedication!

The two have made their way into our hearts so quickly and deeply – they are the most wonderful creatures – and already have such distinct personality!

We are impressed by how well and professional and prompt your clinic and organisation is working.

We would like to mention that I am a lady with “low ovarian reserve”, according to my AMH and Estrogen levels. Dr. Shivani suggested to us to have an egg donor - but we insisted to try with my eggs.

We decided to have faith in my eggs despite the numbers and statistics – after all you only need 1 good embryo to get pregnant! 

Dr. Shivani did a very good job with the delicate “egg-growing” inside my ovaries. We know this process is rather based on experience and intuition than on science. The laboratory team fertilized and groomed them well.

We got pregnant in the first attempt and now our boy and girl are here!!! Thanks to our dearest surrogate mother, and the expertise of the Dr. Shivani and the laboratory team!

We would also like to mention the communication; it is vital during these 9 months when intended parents are far away. We never had to wait for an answer from you more than half a day and we could even write to you when we were worried about something non medical and would always get an intelligent, helpful and emphatic answer.

After the birth of the babies at Eden hospital, with the doctors and nurses there – and the team of nannies connected with SCI we have always felt in the best hands. The crib and baby bath tub that you lend parents for the time in India is a very helpful indeed,

A blessed and happy couple!


We wish this family the choicest of blessings in the future.

From the U.S - the most beautiful sibling project

It is always wonderful when a family comes back and trusts us with a sibling project. A chance to see an SCI baby who is older and introduce them to a much wanted sibling, in this case a wonderful new baby sister.

Dear Dr Shivani and the entire staff of SCI,

We would like to express our deep appreciation to you for helping us make our dreams come true. Looking at our precious new baby and our little girl reminds us of your incredible gift. It is people like you that make the world a brighter place. It has been, and continues to be, an unforgettable and pleasant experience.

Truls only wish was to become a father and through SCI, his dreams came true with the birth of Signe & Christian in early November.

"November 6th a dream came true, and I became a dad to twins!! A girl and a boy, and

I have so many to thank thru the SCI. First of all, thank you dr. Shivani for your professional treatment.

I will also of course send my blessings to the wonderful surrogate and her family.

From Australia : a beautiful bundle...

As with many of our families, this family spent years struggling with infertility and further years looking into adoption.

We are pleased to say that their journey is finally at an end, another SCI family completed.

Happy Family

We recently were lucky enough to have been blessed by the birth of 2 beautiful perfect baby girls (no bias at all). Words cannot express how thankful we are to Dr Shivani and her amazing team. From the admin staff all the way through to the paediatricians and wonderful nurses who cared for our babies when they were born.
After years of disappointment trying natural pregnancies / IVF cycles / adoption courses etc etc etc, our surrogacy experience was the total opposite.
At present we are sitting in the Svelte hotel, surrounded by a host of new families, all made possible by SCI. We find ourselves sneaking into the babies room to catch a glimpse of them when they are sleeping and we pinch ourselves everytime.

A special mention to our surrogate who has made all our dreams come true and kept our babies healthy and safe.
We can not thank everyone enough

From Australia : The beginning of the story

We often celebrate the end of families' stories, with the birth of a much wanted child. Behind each of these stories is the story of what brought families to India, to Delhi.

People who are unfamiliar with surrogacy in India, often think that IP's are indulgent; too posh to push, haven't tried enough etc... without understanding the context families or what brings them to surrogacy in India.

This is one such story, a brave story, a story of courage, of resilience, of persistence and we thank both Nel and Dan for sharing this very personal story with us... the beginning of their journey with surrogacy & SCI.

Dan and Nel from Victoria.


We have just returned from two and a half weeks of self cycling in Dehli. What an adventure we have had!! Right now embryo transfer is complete and we are awaiting a pregnancy test. In the meantime here is our story.

Our background

In 2009 we’d tried everything to get my body to produce eggs. Naturopath, acupuncture, Chinese herbs (which stank!!), clomid. We even saw my Aunty in the Philippines who uses massages to solve all of life’s problems. Nothing worked. In 2010 we turned to XXX IVF.

Cycle 1: 3 eggs, 2 embryos.

1 fresh transfer – successful

Preg 1 - ended at 13w, baby boy

Cycle 2: FET – unsuccessful

Cycle 3: 2 eggs, 1 embryo. Fresh transfer – unsuccessful

Preg 2 – natural, ended at 16w, baby boy.

Preg 3  - natural, ended at 22w, baby girl.

I delivered and nursed all of my precious babies.


My experiences of IVF were harrowing. High doses with VERY low ovarian response. Pushing through cycles 2 and 3 we began to notice the “bums on seats” mentality . 

Two surprise natural pregnancies sparked relief for us. YES we don’t need IVF anymore!!! But instead of shopping for frilly bassinettes we were slumped horrific losses. It was time to take my body out of the equation and tap into surrogacy.

 A new start

Desperate to start a family we saw a lawyer who advised us on all the red tape of surrogacy and adoption law in Australia. The mountain of the Australian system just seemed too big to climb. We started thinking outside the square where we quickly found that all roads led to SCI.

Surrogacy Centre India

Coming to terms with more IVF was very difficult. Having to go to a foreign country made it worse.....but facing another pregnancy was simply impossible. So we took a deep breath and went for it.

IVF in India

Where IVF happens

SCI’s IVF clinic ISIS hospital is an amazing place. Sitting in the midst of Delhi’s chaos is this little hospital. Ultra modern and staffed with the most gentle nurses. Within seconds of meeting Dr Shivani all my terrified thoughts had gone.  We were in the right place. 

Dr Shivani runs the IVF clinic herself and she knows EXACTLY what is going on with everyone. We have no idea how she does it. We could call her anytime and she treated us like we were her only patients.

After our initial meeting Dr Shivani scanned me and within seconds she was shaking her head. A big cyst on my left ovary. The following day I was in theatre having it drained.

Days later self-cycling began. I have never felt so at ease considering I was being given high doses of gonal F and growth hormones as well as antagonist everyday. We chose to attend the clinic everyday for injections. The nurses knew us by name and never ONCE asked me for a patient number. For the first time we truly felt that the sensitivity of our horrific past was being respected...and that we were people, patients...not numbers or bums for the seats.

Tour of SCI Headquarters

Dr Shivani took us on a tour of SCI HQ. She must do dozens of these every fortnight but she was so personal that we could have been her only patients. SCI runs like a well oiled machine. Every piece of the puzzle is well staffed and the whole operation is running like clockwork. We could see that every dollar of our fees goes to the operational costs of the business.

Handy things to know

From our Hotel room
·       Lots of SCI’s clients are Australians so you are not alone!!

·    We stayed at Svelte which is attached to a large mall. It was expensive but full of Aussies. The price is not for everyone but for us the companionship of other Aussies in the same boat was worth it. We cuddled babies, shared stories, ate out every night ($10 steaks with veggies from the Hard Rock Cafe!) Everything is out in the open. People were MORE THAN WILLING to share. I have never known such support.  

places to go, people to meet!

·       In India surrogacy is “normal”. Having foreigners around participating in surrogacy arrangements is simply an everyday part of life. 

·       Taxes! OMG taxes! Taxes ARE NOT included in the advertised price. That’s ok if you buy a small pizza for 225 ruppees (about $5). The 3 taxes - general tax (we called it GST), service tax and tax on the service tax (I kid you not!) only added up to 55ruppee (about $1). But when we got our accommodation bill the taxes (GST tax and luxury tax....YES LUXURY TAX!) added up to $500 for 17 nights. We were lucky we had extra “just incase” money. FYI when we went to the cinema we paid an “entertainment tax”.  

·       For currency exchange go the “Domani” money changer shop at the MbLock market. I promise you won’t get a better rate anywhere else.

So that’s our story. I can’t speak highly enough of the self-cycling experience. The hardest part of the journey was facing the pollution, grime and poverty on the streets. But in saying that, our surrogate is very well paid for the priceless gift she provides. And if our $$$ means that our surrogate’s family will have a better life; then it’s a definite win-win situation as far as we are concerned.

Wishing everyone blessings of babies

Dan and Nel,

Happy Diwali from our SCI family to yours

Diwali is the festival of lights and celebration. one of the most important festivals of the year and is celebrated in families by performing traditional activities together in their homes.

It is a time in which family travel to be together; where our surrogate's families are assisted to be with their daughters, wives, mothers; where the surrogate accommodation is filled with  food, laughter, joy and light ( and family).

While Diwali is popularly known as the "festival of lights", the most significant spiritual meaning is "the awareness of the inner light". 
The celebration of Diwali as the "victory of good over evil", refers to the light of higher knowledge dispelling all ignorance, the ignorance that masks one's true nature.
With this awakening comes compassion and the awareness of the oneness of all things and this brings joy & peace.
Just as we celebrate the birth of our physical being, Diwali is the celebration of this Inner Light. 


May the Divine Light Of Diwali,
Spread Into Your Life Peace,
Prosperity, Happiness and Good Health.
Happy Diwali from our SCI family to yours,
with affection,
Dr. Shivani and the SCI Team

From Spain : a Gorgeous Duo

Another proud SCI family from Spain...

Dear Dr. Shivani and staff,
I would like to express my deepest gratitude to you for the great effort you have always made to make my dream of being a father come true. You were always interested and pleasant when you needed to clear up any doubt when the pregnant mother went through a really complicated situation. From the 23rd week of pregnancy you worked hard and professionally, That is when I realized I was in good hands. My lovely and healthy babies Iker and Aryam were born in the 30th week of pregnancy.
I always followed your blog because I liked seeing every new birth while I was thinking I could be the one who proudly posted a picture of my own little babies so the whole world could see them someday.
From now on, I will keep on checking your blog to see every birth, and I will be happy to understand what those families are feeling at that moment. The same happiness I am feeling today thanks to you.
Lots of love to all the staff and thank you so much.
Íker, Aryam y Lauren. ( this is our story )


Querida doctora Shivani y equipo,
Quería expresaros toda mi gratitud por todos los esfuerzos que habéis realizado para que mi sueño de ser padre fuera una realidad. Siempre mostrasteis interés para resolver mis dudas cuando el embarazo se complicó enormemente. Desde la semana 23 de gestación trabajasteis con gran profesionalidad y me demostrasteis que estábamos en buenas manos. Gracias a ello llegamos a la semana 30 de gestación y nacieron sanos mis preciosos niños, Íker y Aryam.
Siempre seguía su blog porque me gustaba ver cada nuevo nacimiento y pensar que un día yo podría también mostrar a mis pequeños al mundo lleno de orgullo. Ahora continuaré haciéndolo para ver cada uno de los nuevos nacimientos y poder de alegrarme de lo que estarán sintiendo esas familias, esa felicidad que siento el día de hoy gracias a vosotros.
Un abrazo muy fuerte a todo el equipo y muchas gracias.
Íker, Aryam y Lauren. ( Esta es nuestra historia )
As with all our famiies; we wish this family the choicest of blessings.

From Australia: the Aussie baby boom continues...

The Australian baby boom continues with the birth of Sophie ...

Dear Dr Shivani, Dr Vishal and the amazing SCI team,

my journey to complete my family with the birth of Sophie Roma Douglas has been amazing. Something that I though would never be possible, is now a reality.

Dr Shivani and her team guided me every step of the way, with the untiring support in Australia from Margarida, John and Meg (two very dedicated Women and one very understanding Husband).

I would like to thank my Donor and Surrogate for the gift of life they have blessed me with and I hope that my Surrogate will continue to be a part of Sophie's life journey.

As a single parent now for the second time, I may not have found my life partner but I have my own family now with wonderful family support and friends. From the moment Sophie's little fingers wrapped around mine, my lifes journey became so much richer.

Thank You

Peter and Sophie

From the U.S : SCI Family Reunion in California

One of the joys of surrogacy  with SCI, is watching what has been an on line community come to life when people are brought together in Delhi. This vibrant and supportive community allows for friendships to develop, and thrive with people from around the world or, more surprisingly around the corner from each other...

Dear Dr. Shivani,

This past weekend, we celebrated a Chinese tradition call a 'Red Egg' party, where family and friends gather to celebrate a baby's 100+ day birthday.

Everyone was enthusiastic to meet our guest of honor, who was a perfect baby boy throughout the entire 3-4hr gathering.

We were delighted that many friends and relatives could make it, but the highlight was reuniting with Adrian/Jason, Rob/David, and their precious babies at the party, all of whom we met during our time at in New Delhi. So lucky are we to associate Ethan's Red Egg party with our 1st SCI Family reunion.

Attached are photos of our 3 families together. The one with everybody is my favorite one.
In this photos, Ethan is 4 months, Kimaya (Rob/David's daughter), Olivia, and Clara (Adrian/Jason twin girls) are all ~5 months. I'm happy to report all babies are health--making baby sounds, engaging with their parents, and improving their motor skills.

I hope these photos will express to you how much we appreciate SCI's efforts when your team cared for our surrogate mothers and babies. Without your help, this celebration and other precious memories may not have been possible.

We have more photos and words describing the party at
Ethan's Red Egg post from our blog. Please take a look at your leisure to celebrate with us.

Feel free to share the contents of this email and photos on the SCI blog so that others can share the joy of each families' baby reaching the 100+ days milestone.

John and Michael

We wish all these special families the most joyful of blessings and wish them well in the coming years...

From Australia: beautiful baby girls...

Another couple's dreams fullfilled, another SCI family completed...

Dear Dr Shivani & the SCI Team,

There are no words that can discribe the feelings & emotions you have given us with the birth of our 2 beautiful girls.

Zoe & Jiya were born on the 18th of September but this journey started in January when we first met you & your team.

From the moment we met we felt comfortable & we have been informed & kept up to date from day one, the staff has been warm, welcoming, genuine and above all professioanal.

We cannot thank you enough for the dream you have helped turn into reality and the joy you have created.

From the UK: the daughter they have been aching for...

After so many failures, so many losses, this dream can seem so far away, but with the right team behind you, anythng is possible...
Dear Dr Shivani,

Our baby daughter, these are words we have been aching to say for the last eight years. And now, thanks to you, we can shout it out to the world...we have a baby daughter!!

No words can ever express the joy we feel right now. To say we are happy is an understatement. Elated...over the use any of these words is an understatement. How does one describe the overwhelming love we feel when we look at her, when we touch her, when we think about her.
Thank you Dr Shivani for helping us fulfil our dreams and complete our family.

After years of unsuccessful IVF treatments and miscarriages we had genuinely given up...and then we came across you and SCI. After a few emails to Margarida and Meg (who were fantastic) we knew instantly that we just had to give it one last shot. We are so so glad that we did.

A big thank you also to all your staff at the clinic who have shown wonderful professionalism, kindness and patience throughout this journey.
We have already recommended SCI to some of our friends. ..and promise to continue to spread the word.
God bless you Dr Shivani ....may you continue to shower your wonderful baby dust to other parents-in waiting.
Once again, thank you for for everything.
Sangita and Gurdip

From Australia : a beautiful baby girl

Another gorgeous story of a baby now back home with family and friends in Australia.

Dearest Dr Shivani, Team & Mrs.B.

We cannot Thank You enough for everything you have done for us.
You have literally provided us with a new life & world, words cannot convey the enormous gratitude that we feel for you all.
All through this difficult journey, you provided us with the strength and kind words to carry on. Doubt never crossed out minds that 'it wouldn't work' and that eventually we too, could become parents via surrogacy.
With the help of you, your team and of course our surrogate; Mrs B our dreams have now come true.

Attached is a photo of our little girl, Anais Grace aged 6 weeks and we couldn't be happier!.

Thank you ALL again,

warmest regards,

From Australia : a baby boy!

We welcome this handsome chap into the SCI family; a much welcomed son to a family who thought that this would never happen for them...

Dear Dr. Shivani,
After 4 years of pain, failure and disappointment through IVF, we never thought we would see the day we would become a mommy and a daddy. When we contacted you, we did so knowing this was our last available option in becoming parents. We entered into this pragmatically, unsure what the outcome might be. We had become accustomed to hearing "sorry", "negative" and "maybe next time". 
Well, this time we heard "positive" and we were overwhelmed, but of course still nervous. Nine months has never seemed so long!
The words "thank you" somehow seems insignificant. The best way we can thank you is to say Flynn is a beautiful, healthy, happy little boy with a world of opportunities ahead of him, and we will love and support him during his life journey. You have given us this.
To your team, our donor, and especially our surrogate we extend our deepest gratitude. What a beautiful thing each of you have done for us and for other couples in similar situations.
We are embracing being parents and spend each day simply loving Flynn!
Rochelle, David and Flynn
We wish this family the choicest of blessings and wish them all the best for their future
