High success rates
Dr Shivani Sachdev Gour and her team are one of the largest and most experienced IVF/surrogacy providers in India. Dr Shivani is “hands-on” – she performs all donor/client scans, egg collections and embryo transfers – she does not outsource this vital work to less experienced doctors. SCI Healthcare’s embryology team is experienced and sought after by IVF and surrogacy centres across India. We enjoy a higher than normal positive pregnancy results with 75 per cent of donor egg/surrogacy clients achieving pregnancy on their first try. Ninety per cent of clients are pregnant on their second try, very few clients need to try a third time. Our miscarriage rate is lower than national and international averages.

Fast communication – we don’t keep you waiting.
We understand how difficult it can be place your dreams of a family in the hands of a clinic in a foreign country. Most of our clients start the surrogacy process feeling alone and overwhelmed, but unwilling to give up what is, for them, a basic human need – to love and nurture a child. Rest assured, hundreds of couples before you have done just that and are now home with their babies. If they can do it, so can you! We have a team of more than 60 – there is always someone available to answer your questions.

Every single client, past and present, has walked a difficult path in their pursuit of creating a family. Most of our clients have suffered years of infertility, or had repeated miscarriages and failed IVF treatment. We understand how difficult it is to have your baby growing so far from home. We provide regular test results throughout your treatment and pregnancy. We don’t keep clients waiting for news, there is always someone available to help you.

SCI Healthcare has a large team to support you throughout your surrogacy journey, from start until well after you are home as a family.

Extensive choice of Indian donors
We have the largest donor choice of any surrogacy provider in India. We have more than 65 young Indian women enrolled and willing to help our clients. We are also the only clinic in India to offer academic donors, young women who have post-secondary school education. You can view our donors profiles prior to enrolling without charge.
Caucasian donor program
We partner with several International EGG Donor Agencies who have Caucasian and other race donors willing to fly to Delhi to donate to our clients.
We can accept frozen embryo and sperm shipments
We regularly accept shipments of sperm and embryos from clinics around the world. We trust only experienced shipping companies who have successfully delivered to us without issue.
Surrogates ready to start
You do not need to wait to be matched with a surrogate. We have pre-screened surrogate mothers keen to get started. Once you have enrolled and have your test results to us, we can start your cycle. You could be ready for embryo transfer in as few as eight weeks.
Genetic mother/donor and surrogate cycle matching
Embryo transfer must occur at exactly the right time. Dr Shivani cycles a group of surrogates at the beginning of a treatment cycle. When you, or your donor, are ready to start the active phase of treatment, stimulation medications, you receive surrogate profiles. You are only offered profiles of women whose cycles best fit your cycle or your donor’s cycle. This gives you the security of knowing that the surrogate you choose will not have embryo transfer unless medical conditions are optimal. In the rare case of something not going according to plan and your surrogate mother is not ready for embryo transfer, we have other surrogates on the same cycle ready for transfer. This means your cycle will not be cancelled.
We offer a basic surrogacy package and advise all clients of costs for services that may, or may not, be needed. Not all pregnancies run smoothly and sometimes there are unforeseen expenses. We understand our clients have budgets and we keep costs to a minimum. Our prices are lower than the Indian surrogacy clinics most frequented by international clients.
Assistance in Delhi
When you are in Delhi, be reassured that you are not alone. Our concierge service will assist you with everything you may need including airport pick-up, private taxi services, the best prices for quality accommodation, places to shop and things to do and see. After birth of your baby we help in practical ways by loaning you baby items such as bottle warmers and sterilisers, and baby baths, and provide a low cost in-home nursing service.
