Biological Mother and Surrogate Delivered on the Same Day

Biological mother, surrogate deliver on same day in Gujarat.

AHMEDABAD: The joys of parenthood eluded Yogesh Sharma and his wife Reena for 14 long years despite trying out the latest medical treatment. But the pain they suffered was alleviated one fine day. Both Reena and the surrogate they hired simultaneously became pregnant. On October 12, the couple got two children as both the mother and the surrogate delivered on the same day. 

"I had only heard of God's generosity, but I experienced it for the first time when I held my son and daughter, delivered through two different wombs. This is the most precious gift we have received", said Sharma, who is in the defence forces and lives in Delhi. The couple came to Gujarat's Anand to hire a surrogate. 

"This is one of the rare cases where both the natural mother and surrogate get pregnant simultaneously. This is the first such double pregnancy and delivery at our centre and the first in India as well," says surrogacy specialist Dr Naina Patel who has made Anand the world's surrogacy capital. 

The Sharma couple is seeing this as a miracle. "We had lost hope. I underwent four procedures of artificial insemination and four in vitro fertilization ( IVF) cycles. All these did not result in a pregnancy", says Reena. 

The distraught couple decided to adopt. When they applied, the waiting period was two-and-a-half years. As both were nearing 40, they decided to use the waiting period to try out surrogacy instead. 

"The embryo was implanted on February 27 and we were overjoyed to hear that the surrogate mother had conceived on March 5. Our happiness knew no bounds when Reena too became pregnant on March 12," says Yogesh. 

When the surrogate mother got labour pains on October 12, Reena decided to go for cesarean section so that the children are born on the same day.

Regulation of Surrogacy Industry

Need for regulation of surrogacy industry and relevance of ART bill

The need to look closely towards surrogacy in India has been a widely suggested point by think tanks and social experts. People call it as an industry with a turnover of few million dollars, although the term feels very offensive and objectionable for a few. Whatever you call it, certainly the popularity and increasing demand of India as a surrogacy hub requires some fundamental things in place. There has been tremendous increase in the surrogacy and related activities in specific geographical belts of India and it has become a big source of income. There is no regulation and control towards the overall process and specialists are raising issues and concerns about human values, ethical point of view, fundamental rights, and safety and health issues. There was proposed draft presented in 2010 with the intention of covering all these issues in a comprehensive manner and to ensure complete coverage. However, surely there is a need of effective implementation of the Assisted Reproductive Technology Bill, commonly known as ART bill.

There is certainly no doubt that the bill has been drafted very comprehensively and it covers almost all aspects of surrogacy and related activities. The payment directions are well thought and the surrogate mother would receive the amount in five instalments. The maximum chunk of 75% would be made as the fifth and last instalment and that too after delivery of the baby. It surely protects the rights of the intended parents, but it is certainly not making justice to the pain and labour of the surrogate mother. This is one area that surely needs some revision.

The bill suggests that only gestational surrogacy would be allowed in India and genetic surrogacy would not be legal. This is done to avoid the legal complexities of the surrogate mother coming forward asking claim over the baby. It  is surely a good revision and avoid unnecessary conflicts.

The ART draft bill has changed the maximum live births for a surrogate mother to five that was earlier three. It has also mentioned the maximum number of embryo transfers to three. Health experts have few concerns about it and suggest revision.
The insurance related matters also need a reform and more elaborate descriptions in order to protect the rights of the surrogate mother. ART bill suggests that surrogate baby can be available to couples and single person as well. Couple is defined as two people with sexual relationship legal according to  Indian legislation. However, it does not state anything clearly about gay couples.

Wyzax Surrogacy Centre anyway is committed about the interests of intended parents and surrogate mothers as their customer irrespective of what the draft bill says. It has clear-cut policies and procedures for selection of surrogate mothers, medical facilities, legal coverage and payment process. Wyzax ensures that surrogate mothers get the best medical facilities. They operate within the prescribed guidelines of this bill and therefore neither intended parents nor surrogate mothers face any issue. It is always advisable to select Wyzax surrogacy Centre instead of approaching unstructured and unprofessionally managed clinics.

Press Release Wyzax Only Healthcare Corporate for Surrogacy in Delhi

Press Release - Surrogacy India - Wyzax The Only Healthcare Corporate for Surrogacy in Delhi

NEW DELHI, INDIA, September 30, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Wyzax Surrogacy Consultants (WSC) is a specialized surrogacy arm of Wyzax Corp., which is engaged in a vast range of healthcare activities like Pharmaceutical marketing, Biotechnological research and Medical Tourism.

WSC is The Only Healthcare Corporate in India which functions differently from the ART clinics because unlike the latter, we work on the US model, whereby, rather than carrying out IVF at our own centre, we offer the IPs the option of getting the IVF done at any of the world class ART clinics which are on our panel. We at WSC provides end to end surrogacy solutions under 1 roof, including country specific legal procedures, surrogate selection & maintenance, donor selection, gamete banking as well as exit visa formalities. 

Moreover, as per the ART Bill 2010 ,ref ART Bill 2010 - Chapter V; Clause 26; Para (1)(2 ), an ART/IVF centre should not provide any direct surrogacy services to the IPs & should not engage itself in any direct commercial engagements with the latter. All this should be done through a specialised surrogacy agency/ ART bank. Thus WSC acts as the ART Bank. This not only reduces the chances of clinical compromise but also removes any conflict of commercial & clinical interests, thereby, providing transparency, accountability & professionalism to the entire process.

We at WSC are also different from other agencies because unlike the latter, we do not have tie up with 1 particular ART clinic, but we have all top notch ART clinics on our panel, thereby providing options to the IPs with regards to package options, costs & protocols adopted at different centres.
