A blessing of multiples with SCI

It is with great joy that i write that we are very busy with babies at the moment. The Nursery is overflowing with much joy, laughter and a touch of anxiety as parents hold and feed their babies for that first time.

In the last fortnight we have had one set of triplets and four sets of twins born to parents from the U.S and Australia, with two more sets to be born any day to parents from the U.K and Australia.

SCI service to these families includes our concierge who assists with accommodation and transport, access to day and night nurses from our experienced pediatric team and access to baby equipment (when available)such as baths and sterilizers.

These babies are going to families from across the world, rich in diversity, we would encourage you to read the blogs of those families courageous enough to share their stories.

Sending Embryos & Sperm to Delhi - no problem, no issues, no country wide ban!

I have received a number of emails asking for clarification on the issue of a supposed ban on transferring embryos & sperm to India.

I can categorically state that there is no ban across India. We at SCI have and continue to receive both samples of sperm and embryos. In the last few weeks we have received both embryos and sperm couriered with the assistance of two companies from the U.S.A, Canada and Australia.

Again there is no country wide ban.

It is our understanding that there have been some issues with entry into Mumbai and a 'entry tax'. From the courier companies that we work with,they have stated that this has caused a number of issues for both IP's and the courier companies. Until this issue is resolved most courier companies are choosing not to go to Mumbai.

In the last three months we have been receiving almost weekly shipments from around the world,with many couples now sucessfully pregnant. We are planning to receive many more cyro shipping containers in the coming months.

If you beleive that we can assist you, please feel free to contact us.
