and Dr. Monica with the six newly born test-tube babies in their
clinic at Bhopal
Three childless couples were blessed with three pairs of twins, one
pair to each, as they gave birth to six test-tube babies on the same
day i.e. on October 19 last here in Bhopal at 9.30 am, 10.30 am and
11.30 am. The babies, five males and one female, weighing 2 to 2.5
kg were born via In-Vitro-Fertilization technique.
This is for the first time that such a
feat was achieved in Central India. The architect of this feat is
the doctor couple of Dr. Randhir Singh, a child specialist, and Dr.
Monica Singh, an infertility specialist who assisted the delivery of
the babies in their Bhopal Test-Tube-Baby Centre here, claimed so.
The doctor couple talking newspersons
here on Thursday informed that the first childless couple is a
resident of Kuwait who underwent treatment for test-tube baby in
February 2009 in their clinic. On October 19 last at 9.30 am after
eight years of marriage the childless couple were blessed with
twins. Both the babies are male.
The doctor duo said: “the three
concerned women’s fallopian tube was not healthy and was partially
blocked due to which they could not conceive”
Dr. Randhir said that the other two
childless couples, one from Bhopal and the other from South India,
underwent treatment in January this year and the wives delivered
twins also on October 19 last at 10.30 am and 11.30 am respectively.
These couples were issueless for last 10 years and 7 years
respectively. The Bhopal couple were blessed with a boy and a girl
while the South Indian had both male babies, he added.
He said all the babies are healthy.
If expecting mothers undergo regular check-up then they get good
results in terms of babies’ health condition.
Dr Randhir revealed that another
test-tube twin babies are to be born to a first surrogate mother who
is about three month pregnant. The parents of this surrogate child
is NRI couple from Ireland who were childless after 15 years of
Replying to a question Dr. Monica said
that there is no difference between natural born and test-tube born
babies and in past four years 400 childless couples have given birth
to healthy test-tube babies in their clinic.
She said in the international seminar
held in Spain recently much success was achieved in the research
work done on women eggs (Ovum-Cyro Preservation-Vitrification). The
doctor duo had attended this global conference. Now, women who want
to marry late and still want to enjoy the full joy of motherhood can
avail this facility and have their eggs (Ovum-Cyro Preservation-Vitrification)
preserved in labs. They can utilize their eggs later on when they
want to enter wedlock and are mentally ready for motherhood.
