    This has me really concerned. I have come to see surro as our only real option.
    Is there any more developments? Do we know what the reasoning is? Which clinics are involved? Is there another way to get the frostys there?
    Sorry for the Spanish inqusition, I guess I'm thinking aloud.
    Please anyone post any details you find

    Default Transport issues

    Hi Marzi and metoo;

    Sorry for the late reply. yes .... I know how u guys feel. I went into meltdown after I heard. There does not seem to be much we can do at all.

    Surrogaci Center India apparently has no issues getting them delivered by Cryolabs to New Delhi ... but I am not that convinced a the moment (not because I have a reason to be btw) ... I'm little worried about sending the only 5 precious embies we have in HOPE of it getting there and spending all that money as well for the transport and then having it returned!

    THe doctor I initially chose was Dr. Kadam, she said she will get back to me as soon as the issue resolves, so I am doing research in other countries as well as sitting on my backside and waiting for now.

    I am sorry i cannot give u guys better news. I wish I had the ovaries to just go there and do it there I will post new as soon as I hear of what an b done.

    Goodluck.

    Guys
    My wife and I are taking a different approach.

    Rather than the stress and worry of sending our frozen embies over there (which will probly cost circa $3k anyway), we are heading over there for sperm donation and egg collection in mid January. Dr Kadam at Corion has been extremely helpful with us and is prescribing all medication so we can start the process from oz before arriving.

    Let us know if any questions.

    Cheers
    Josh

    sorry, forgot to add:

    Dr. Kadam seems to think it will take anther 2-3 mths to resolve?
    I don't know if there is any other way you can get the embryos there.
    It seems only the Mumbai custom is involved according to the clinics in Delhi (but are they simply trying to get u to register??) I don;t know ... forgive me for being so sceptical.
    I feel it's likely just a money issue; someone wants there palms greased before they will let the frozen embryos through ---- This is just my speculation

    Default agree

    I agree with djjk,

    If u still have ur bits, i.e. ovaries ... it might not b a bad idea to go there and do it?
    I just don't have my ovaries anymore, so can't do it ... those 5 embies are our only hope unless I get ovarian tissues re-implanted ... which I am trying to avoid because it's further surgery again :-(

    Take care everyone. Good luck on your journey.

    Default Shipping embryos to India

    Hi

    As someone who has done this twice with Medair (I can assist with this for you) I believe the issue with customs is still prevalent (as Dr Kadam has noted) and may be for a short while yet. I have been in active discussions with Medair as to what the pending solution is. The issue was caused by a silly US Dr who brought his own embryos with him in a cryoshipper from the US in his luggage...what on earth is that about. Anyway, Customs found out, and sent him back with his croshipper...all embryos shipments are still in limbo due to this incident.

    Knowing India very well (spent 3 months there in past 3 yrs), there is a palm greasing scenario for sure...why else would there be such a stalemate.

    I am an Aust. representative for Medair, so, if you want to email me at medairaustralia@gmail.com, I will keep you posted with any developments. It is not good timing considering the NSW issue has also presented itself in Nov. Now, that is one dreadful piece of legislation...baseless and selfish. I was informed by a very close source, this decision in NSW, per a member of parliaments words, was to stop gay couples having children (thanks Labor party for being so ultra conservative). This person went on to say that there was in no way any real interest in stopping hetro couples having children through surrogacy...it was the gay issue at stake...stopping them having families. Well well well...they will have families whether we like it or not.

    Default Surrogacy clinics in Delhi

    Dear Friends,
    I need some help very quickly due to the NSW legislation coming into effect from 1st of March.

    Me and my wife (yes I am the husband) have gone through few assisted fertility cycles (pills, IUI, IVF etc etc) which lasted almost 5 - 6 years since we started. We ended our journey unsuccessfully in 2009 when my wife actually fell pregnant but due to complications in the 34th week, we had a still birth.

    Since then it has taken a lot to recover both emotionally and physically but last year we finally gathered courage to think about pregnancy again since we still had 4 embryos left (still there at IVF Australia).

    We wanted to go down the path of surrogacy in India and all our research told us that there is no provision to get the baby back into Australia unless you stayed overseas for a year and then adopt the baby legally. We were very discouraged and started to wonder a childless life, until the Nicole Kidman case came to light.

    We now found out 2 days back that it is straight forward to get the child back into Australia under citizenship by descent. Now we want to go ahead with the surrogacy program but now have to deal with the NSE legislation about commercial surrogacy.

    What we want to achieve is to setup a contract before 1st of March with a surrogacy clinic in Delhi and I was wondering if someone can recommend a good clinic in Delhi or anywhere else in India?

    I have also written to surrogacyadvisory@gmail.com address but would appreciate any help you folks can provide us. My contact number is 0438 985 909 and I can PM someone if that is a better way.

    Fingers crossed.

    Regards Maneesh

    We were in the same position as you as my wife can't carry so have made arrangements for overseas surrogacy. At present we are in Bombay and are hoping all goes well.

    I strongly recommend you consider dr kadam at corion clinic in Bombay. She understands the ivf/surrogacy field very well and has been extremely professional. She has only just started out at corion, but previously worked at rotundra, where she gained alot of experience. She has a number of glowing references from other Aussie couples.

    We aren't too worried about bringing a baby back as the baby would have our genes and therefore will be clearly our child according to the Indian birth certificate - not to mention the fact that we aren't breaking the law given we have entered into the arrangement before 1 march. If serious and dont want to break the law (If you really care anyway - let's face it, it's an idiotic law that no court would lock you up for) suggest coming over here, signing the contract and paying the deposit before 1 march.

    India is an amazing country and so are the people so I wish you all the best. Respond to this thread with any more questions so others can see.

    Cheers

    Hi,
    I have also heard the same thing about Dr. Kadam in Corion in Mumbai; we were going to go with her too; but ended up having embryo transport issues.
    We have no idea whether the situation has been resolved or not as yet.
    You may also want to consider Thailand?
    Feel free to PM me if u like ?

    We considered Thailand, but scrapped it becasuse of they don't recognize the genetic parents as the parents on the birth certificate. I could be wrong but I think that is still the case.

    We looked at shipping our embryos with medair (as we still had eggs from ivf) but it was going to cost about 3k, and we had come to Bombay anyway to sign the initial contracts so are just doing an egg collection here. Perhaps from 1 march we won't be able to ship embryos though? Wheel- I wish you all the best with sending your embies. I really hope you can get them sent. Are you sure that dr kadam can't help? My wife seems to think she can as someone she has been in contact with had her embroyoes shipped to corion.

    If there's anything you want me to find out while in Mumbai pls let me know. Surrogacy in Oz might be another option if you can find someone? Remember that post menopausal women can carry also.
