April — May 2014
1. In vitro fertilization (IVF) commonly known as test tube baby as we all know is one of the most significant advances in the field of modern medicine.
The first IVF baby Louis Brown, born in England in 1978 was the result of more than a decade of research by Dr. Patrick Steptoe and Robert Edwards. They essentially changed the rules for how people can come into the world.
“Thanks again for all KIC did for us. It just takes us one year and our dream comes true. We both agree that the biggest difference between KIC with other Infertility clinics is the services. Other clinics just provide the IVF and surrogacy service. But KIC do facilitate us to get medical visa, citizenship, passport and exit permit, accommodation etc. That makes us life so easy in India!
“I decided to become and egg donor because if would help people in their journey and dream to parenthood and I have found this experience very interesting and exciting. The people are very friendly and respectful to-wards you. At the clinic the people that help you are working with you in a very nice way and understand your needs and care. I am very glad that God chose me for this very noble purpose.”
"Thank you again for making our dream come true. We will always remember you all and what you did for us. Thank you for
your kindness and professionalism throughout the last year. We wish you and the clinic the very best in the future. I also wanted to mention that Erin and I were both very impressed with Satvinder Singh. He was extremely helpful throughout our time here and was very reliable. Thank you Dr. Samit Sekhar
