Coming soon.... Dr Kadam formerly a head doctor at Rotunda clinic of Mumbai to set up her own fertility clinic in 2009.
Going places it may be but if like the other clinics if we find aspects of the clinic lacking; cleanliness of the washroom to the choices of slippers on show or Semen sample room or staffing levels payment methods etc. we will put the boot in and pull away our stamp of approval.
This time Dr Kadam will have endoscopy surgery available on site. She will also be more morally and ethically tuned on the recruitment of egg donors and surrogates, fetus reduction and so on. I had mentioned the surrogates in Gujarat were bigger and healthier than women folk of Mumbai. Agreeing, the clinic will make a concertive effort to recruit healthier surrogates. The benefit will show itself in less terminations, less cesarean, healthier babies, especially twins and less cost.
An example of keeping the cost to you as low as possible another delivery hospital will be sought. Yes you will have a choice but the idea was to spread the load of surrogacy patients over another hospital for various reasons. Keeping a surrogate waiting all day for a simple scan is not ideal nor is ramping up the fees for overseas patients ten fold.
Trimming the excess fat where too many fingers were in the pie should bring the cost of surrogacy down a little. Every penny helps. For instance the insurance fee. We discussed methods of reducing this fee with the doctor over dinner. Over time with westerners in mind the clinic will streamline and simplify further every aspect and this includes the language and terminology. I'm sure you all know the ease with which Bobby had spelled out the cost of treatment in his website and emails so much so that Dr Kadam will follow suit; payment breakdown was also a criticism of the other clinics.
ISO Standard accredited clinic? No need. It will be endorsed by us and by feedbacks from you the patients.
Too good to be true? Furniture not to your liking? Plasma screen (Panasonic) showing too many Shah Rukh Khan videos? Send us your verdict, good or bad and I'll launch them at the doctor. A suggestion box? Good idea, anything else?
Waiting for any negative feed backs from patients which I will then reveal on the site. Then it’s up to Dr Kadam to improve on them or not.

For the delivery a little extra needs to be paid for instance the surrogate may need a c-section and further hospital stay and things of that nature but most bases are covered.
But what about the hidden cost, the extras? There's none I could think of apart from long term stays & airfares (possibly mines too, pretty please!) Priority always given to VIP persons.

When your Baby is born
At the Mumbai delivery hospital it would cost around Rs5,500 ($100) onwards to have a room not shared with any other patient (an uncomfortable hospital bed and small sofa) No breakfast (wife gets meals) no wi-fi, just a room. Or half that for a twin patient shared room.
Whilst your baby is in NICU there is no need to stay in the grounds of the hospital. Only when the baby comes out of care and to a bedside is there a need to select a bed at the hospital.
Rajesh, yes that handy man again has a relative named Manasi who owns her own tours and travel company in the vicinity of the hospital and is ideally placed to help you. She has a strong network of hotels and transport providers and being based locally, she can be the focal point of all your Mumbai needs. I have stayed at nearby Oritel which is a serviced apartment with pool.
You'll need a taxi to buy necessities for the baby see this. Products like kettles etc so please contact us we will show you a list of necessary items that must be bought for when your baby is born.
For longer stays we suggest Pune mentioned below.
