From the Philippines: a much longed for baby...

After four years of trying...

"Over 4 years of trying to have a child, we've had 5 heartbreaking miscarriages. We have spent a lot of time and money on all kinds of treatment from the best doctors in the country and for a time out of desperation, even tried alternative medical treatments...nothing. 

We still lost the succeeding pregnancies. 

We had spent almost 2 years researching surrogacy as an option. We had thought briefly of adopting but we were adamant that our child be genetically ours so we zoned on on looking at gestational surrogacy further. There were a couple of countries we looked at and decided on India. Now we researched the best clinic for us and after very extensive research, we felt Dr.Shivani and SCI was the clinic that will help make our dream come true...and did. 

It was a very nerve-wracking 9 months with our surrogate having to be hospitalized for almost 2 months but all throughout, the SCI team were always there. Updates were timely and we were always updated. A very professional organization, caring for their surrogates and you really felt that they were doing their best to help and ensure a successful outcome.

I cannot thank Dr.Shivani and her entire team at SCI enough. You facilitated making our dream come true and we are now a family. Thank you and more success to SCI."

From Australia: Twin girls, and support throughout their journey...

A story from a family who never gave up on their dream...

Dear SCI
We are now the proudest parents of Ella and Abbey, they are the most gorgeous little girls on this Earth and it is the greatest gift we have ever been given to now have them in our arms. Words cannot really express what our daughters mean to us, but maybe a few well chosen words of thanks might go someway and provide confidence to others to never give up on their dream, for without a dream their is no meaning to life.

The team at SCI over the last two years has worked tirelessly to help us achieve this dream, it has been a pleasure to work with their staff who have supported us at every moment. 

We did not choose SCI easily, we researched and attended conferences on surrogacy, we spoke with many medical professionals both clinically and ethically and we made the most informed choice that directed us to go with SCI. Meeting Dr Shivani was one of the greatest moments we have experienced along this journey and that occurred over two years ago and stays fresh in our memories, my wife found her to be a very sensitive and compassionate doctor, I found her to be a highly professional and ethical doctor who was well qualified and experienced in her field.  I remember Dr Shivani and my wife hugging each other after their first conversation together, from that moment on we placed total trust in her and her team and from that moment on Dr Shivani never gave up on us fulfilling our dream. 

Dr Shivani was always available to us and her team were always prompt in their contact with us also, this made the journey easier.

Although we had many attempts and for certain medical reasons were unsuccessful it was all worth it in the end and we highly recommend others placing their trust in SCI. We have not had one bad experience with SCI and trust me we have asked the hardest questions.

We would also like to mention our surrogate to whom we will also be eternally thankful, to give us this gift of carrying our children is beyond our comprehension, we have had the opportunity to meet her in Delhi after the birth of our girls and I don't think their is another time in our life's that we both felt so inept to say thank you  to someone who has given us so much. 

The reality is that because our beautiful surrogate has carried our children and brought these two beautiful souls in the world  for us she has also given us the greatest meaning to our lives and fulfilled a life long dream of having children, many people take having children for granted but for people like myself and my wife this has never been the case.

In closing we thank Dr Shivani, our beautiful  surrogate and the SCI team beyond what any words can really express, God Bless You All, 
You will always be in our thoughts 
David and Maria, Ella and Abbey ( A proud and thankful Family)

From Brazil: Gorgeous twins for a gorgeous family...

I am so pleased to announce the safe arrival of Carla and Gustavo's twins. I had the privilege of spending time with this lovely family and using my poor Portuguese to translate their message of care and love when they met their surrogate. 

"Dear Dra.Shivani  and all SCI team, 

we would like to thank God, Dra.Shivani, your team and your loved surrogacy, for making possible the realization of our dream. Although it was a very long way, never lose hope since we had full confidence in the SCI. We create a relationship of complicity because we knew the commitment that dra.Shivani had with our case. Thank you for never giving up on us. We always gratitude to everyone involved in this process and a definitive link with this amazing country that is India that brought us Miguel and Isabela. 

Carla and Gustavo.

 PS: We are open to, in whatever form, help other Brazilian couple, who speak English or not (as in our case) to also realize their dream."
"Querida Dra.Shivani e toda equipe SCI, 

 gostariamos de agradecer a Deus, Dra.Shivani, sua equipe e a querida barriga de aluguel, por tornar possivel a realizacao do nosso sonho. Apesar de ter sido um caminho muito longo, nunca perdemos a esperança uma vez que tínhamos total confiança na SCI. Criamos uma relação de cumplicidade pois sabíamos do empenho que a dra.Shivani tinha com o nosso caso. Obrigado por nunca desistir de nós. Teremos sempre gratidão a todas as pessoas envolvidas nesse processo e uma ligação definitiva com esse incrível país que é a India que nos trouxe Miguel e Isabela.

 Carla e Gustavo. 

PS: Estamos a disposição para, de qualquer que seja a forma, ajudar a outros casais brasileiros, que falem ou não inglês (como é o nosso caso) a também realizarem o seu sonho."
