Lockdown Stops Couples Who Took a Surrogate Route to Parenthood from Holding Newborns

Lockdown stops couples who took a surrogate route to parenthood from holding newborns.

For the last 12 years, Sheeba* and her husband have been trying to have a baby. Their dream came true last month when she had a baby through surrogacy, but life has been more agonizing for the couple. The couple is among the many who are unable to see their babies delivered by surrogate mothers since the country went into lockdown on March 24. In India, 5,000 to 10,000 babies are born through surrogacy every year.

“They had come down from Dubai to Kanyakumari and planned to come to Chennai a few days before the delivery,” says Dr Geetha Haripriya, fertility expert and chairperson of Prashanth Hospital. The surrogate was due to deliver by March-end. “Sheeba’s mother fell ill and the surrogate went into labour on March 17. By the time Sheeba’s mother recovered, the lockdown was announced. We’ve sent them photographs of the baby. We give them daily updates about the baby’s health,” said the doctor.

Dr. Shivani Sachdev Gour, fertility expert and founder-director of SCI IVF Hospital in New Delhi, says that four babies were born through surrogacy at the center in the past two weeks. “While two couples were able to come and get the children as they live in Delhi, two others have not yet seen their babies,” says Dr Shivani Sachdev Gour. “One of the couples is from UP and have had a girl after trying for 14 years. The other, from Rajasthan, has had a boy. Though we gave them letters from the hospital, they are unable to come as the areas they live in have been sealed off.”

Modinagar Obstetrics and Gynecology Society and Delhi State | ISAR (Indian Society of Assisted Reproduction)

Modinagar Obstetrics and gynecology Society and Delhi State chapter of ISAR (Indian Society of Assisted Reproduction) organised a CME program on Female Infertility on 14th November at Hotel Royal Inn. Approx 29 gynaecologists from Modinagar attended and the Chief Guest was Dr Manju Sivach MLA. She emphasized the need for improvement in doctor patient communication which is causing problems in doctor patient relationship.  She said infertility is leading to breakdown of family structure and it’s essential to have good treatment available in smaller towns like Modinagar.  Dr Kavita from Modinagar Obs Gyn Society quote “we are seeing a larger number of women with Infertility about 20 percent of women have this problem and we do not have advanced treatment facilities here so women habe to travel to Delhi Noida. Dr Shivani Gour General Secretary of Delhi ISAR said Surrogacy IVF is under debate now a day’s approximately 5 percent of women who fail routine treatment need surrogacy to get pregnant.  In Delhi it is because women are having children late after 35 years so the egg quality is poor. Dr Nupur Garg senior consultant SCI IVF centre Noida said women from Modinagar travel to Noida for treatment very late by that time success tates are lower and we want to raise awareness for specialist referral early at correct time. Simple techniques like exercise 20 minutes per say avoid junk food and taking high protein diet and vitamin c like in tomatoes citrys fruits can promote fertility.
