IVF & Surrogacy in India – an Update

With fertility tourism on the rise, as we all know, I like to keep you informed of perspectives that come across my desk so that you can decide how to proceed with your eyes wide open. Specifically, how does one handle that there are no laws that regulate IVF and surrogacy in India? Does that concern you? Or, are you willing to overlook these issues to have a baby? I would like to hear your thoughts on this author’s perspective at http://www.drmalpani.com/bad-ivf-doctors.htm:

“There is no doubt that IVF technology represents one of modern medicine’s success stories. Using IVF , we can help couples who could never have a baby with any other technique to start their own family.

However, woe betide the patient who ends up in a bad IVF clinic ! For example , one of the IVF clinics in New Delhi is owned by a skin specialist. This doctor, who is not even a gynecologist , offers IVF treatment ! Not only are your chances of getting pregnant in a bad IVF clinic very low, you also run a major risk of losing a lot of time, money and energy. Not only do you pour your money down the drain, you also end up losing confidence in IVF technology, thus depriving yourself of your best chance of having a baby . And when you do find out afterwards that the IVF clinic you selected was a bad one, there is little you can do about it ! Blaming yourself or cursing the doctor afterwards does not help, which is why you need to be very careful when deciding which clinic in which to do your treatment ! Caveat emptor – and this is why it’s very important that you do your homework carefully – you are making a major investment !”

    What exactly are you rambling about here? I stumbled across your post because of key words “India” and “surrogacy”.

    Surrogacy is not illegal in India, by the way.

    Also, your Dr. Malpani link is broken..
