Baby Boom continues...

It has been a very busy month at SCI with 10 international surrogacy babies born and the arrival of a group of Non- Indian Egg donors. We have had multiple families from Australia; the United States and Scandinavia ( including Alwina with her proud fathers) all in the process of collecting their much loved babies and have either returned home or are in the process of doing so.

Thankfully the process for going home has been streamlined and with some local support, IP's are able to navigate their local embassy/ consular and High Commission immigration requirements and the local bureaucracy and return home within two to three weeks.

Our concierge service managed by the very capable Shilpi have been run off their feet, assisting with local transport,accomodation, last minute shopping and transporting cots, sterilizers and baby baths for newborns across Delhi. It is also wonderful to see IP's who have only communicated via email and forums finally meet and support each other.

I have been privileged to observe so many wonderful moments from these parents,from the first time that they see and hold their baby; when they collect their baby from the hospital and just before they leave. One of the most touching was from a family from the United States, the mother told me:

“Ten months ago, i carried they cyptoshipper in my arms, now i am taking my baby back home”

For SCI, it doesn't get much better than that.
