A super duper IVF success story !


You hear IVF success stories every now and again but I'm sure ours will be a super duper one!
We, Susan and Sunil Silva got married 11 years ago, we didn't have (any biological) kids because my husband had undergone a vasectomy in his previous marriage, after fathering 2 boys. The elder one is with his ex while the younger one chose to be with us- apple of my eye, my son! About 7 years ago we started thinking about having one more child and decided to give it a try undergoing an IVF ! I started reading and searching for best IVF clinics in the internet and always Dr Malpani's clinic came first in the list and I literally developed a virtual faith/trust to that clinic. Moreover the advice/second opinion which I got from Dr Malpani boosted my confidence and I was certain I want to go to Malpani's for my IVF. Unfortunately my husband was dead against going to Mumbai for an IVF when there are n number of IVF clinics in Chennai itself! So we tried IVF in a clinic here in Chennai where which not only wasn't successful but also the whole episode highly unprofessional. There was absolutely no transparency as far as the treatment was concerned and we just left the idea of trying another cycle for a while then.
Then two years ago we decided to try another cycle (better late than never!) and this time my husband let me decide on the clinic (I made his life miserable enough for 2 years for not listening to me, so much so that he would've taken me to moon if that's where I wanted to go for my IVF ! ;)!!!
There was no doubt in my mind where I wanted to go! I landed in Mumbai on June 2012, the first meeting up with Dr Malpani it made me think extremely positive about the whole exercise. I got conceived in the first chance itself with TWINS! I gave birth to my baby boys Jordan and Aidan in Feb 2013! Yippee!!!
The story doesn't end over here! My brother was diagnosed with obstructive azoospermia about 4 years ago and was left with no choice but IVF in order to have a child of his own! Both my sister in law and my brother tried an IVF  cycle in Kerala (against my advice on Malpani clinic) 3 years ago which was again a failure.. So vague that clinic was, they haven't even got a copy of their medical treatment from there!
Seeing me pregnant with twins, they too wanted to try their next cycle in Malpani's. They both started their treatment on June 2013, exactly a year after my visit!
And my sister in law is now six months pregnant with TWINS! (Moral of the story is taking me my advice seriously! :D)
I'm extremely happy with the experience I had at Malpani Infertility Clinic! I was very clear I would repeat the cycle if necessary in the same place with the same doctors! Both Dr.Aniruddha and Dr.Anjali Malpani are highly professional, do understand the sentiments of each of their patients and are very supportive through the treatment emotionally as well! The staff here is very warm and friendly and are an excellent team! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for what I've got because of you'll! Big hugs...

How to select an IVF clinic.


IVF clinics are mushrooming all over the country ! This is good news , because this means that you have lots of choices as to which clinic you can go to. The bad news is that because you have lots of choices , you don't know which clinic is right for you.
Most patients end up choosing one based on how close it is to them; or one based on their doctor's referral  which is often decided by which IVF clinic gives them the biggest kickback);  or the one which is cheapest. However, this is not the best way to select a clinic !
You need to spend some time and energy thinking about exactly what you're looking for.
Now if you don't have a choice - for example, because you live in a remote place and there's only a single clinic in your town; or you're on a very tight budget, then the decision is out of your hands.
However, if you do have options, then it's extremely important that you think about what's right for you.
It's usually a good idea to at least do a consultation in two different clinics , and then select the one where the chemistry between you and the doctor is right !

Choose one where the doctor treats you like an intelligent adult ! He should be transparent, open, and will do what's in your best interests , because he puts you first !

What to find an IVF clinic which respects your time and intelligence ?
