All You Need To Know About The Baby Factory In India & How Much People Earn Through Surrogacy

The concept of surrogacy has always been a controversial topic. Surrogacy is a process through which an infertile woman can have her baby. A woman, referred to as a surrogate, is chosen who is ready to help the infertile woman. The sperm and the embryo are sent into the womb of the surrogate.

She bears the egg until it turns into a baby and comes out after 9 months. Then, the infertile woman takes her baby to her home. The first clinic of surrogacy in India was founded by Dr. Nayna Patel in Anand, Gujarat. She refers to her clinic as The Baby Factory. 

Today, we will discuss The Baby Factory.

Dr. Nayna Patel is a gynaecologist who is living her mother’s dream job. The concept of opening a clinic of surrogacy didn’t occur to her until a foreign couple approached her. The woman could not conceive and they were asking her for surrogacy. She had no choice but to accept when the woman’s mother stepped forward to be her surrogate.

It would have been a one-time thing if it weren’t for the woman’s midwife who came to her a few months later. Her daughter was in immense financial trouble. She wanted to have her daughter as a surrogate and expected some money in return. 

Dr. Nayna was having a couple who wanted her to do the surrogacy. They were so insistent that they offered 2.5 lakhs for the one who will accept to be their surrogate. She was amazed by the coincidence. She could help a poor woman and a couple at the same time. 

Soon after, many couples began approaching her and there was no looking back. Before she knew it, she had already built a clinic for surrogacy. She accepted foreign couples as well. Poor women approached her to accept them as a surrogate so that they could get rid of the financial trouble. She gets €17,250 from the couples and pays €4,950 to the surrogate.

The surrogates were able to build homes and educate their children with the money they earn from being a surrogate. They were thankful to Dr. Nayna for making their lives better. Even the couples are grateful to her for blessing them with a baby when they had no hope of having one. Many people dislike her for exploiting poor women and commercialising childbirth. They believe that surrogacy is equal to donating organs. 

But she doesn’t give a damn about the criticism. She sees herself as a feminist who allows women to help each other. Besides, she conducts a test before accepting any surrogate. The soon-to-be surrogate should be married and should have a child of her own. She should be psychologically fit and ready to take up the grave task.

Dr. Nayna is also referred to as the controversial doctor because of the number of controversies thrown at her.

The following incidents are a few:

  1. A foreign couple was asked to pay $11. But when they landed in India, they were expected to pay double the amount of $11. The husband went to speak with Dr. Nayna when he saw a man shouting at someone on the phone. Through what he heard, the man was also going through the same issue. When he asked Dr. Nayna, she said that they had already informed them about the total cost. This was not the only thing that the couple suffered. A few days later, they were informed that the surrogacy had failed.
  2. Someone from the relatives of a surrogate had approached the police. Because he didn’t have any proof against Dr. Nayna, the police didn’t open the case. But later on, the surrogate died while delivering. This caused suspicion against Dr  Nayna. But she stated that it might be because of the overdose of some drugs that she died. 
  3. Few problems often rise during surrogacy. The surrogates become so attached to the baby they were delivering, that they don’t want to give up on them which in turn, creates immense chaos. 
  4. A Japanese couple came to Dr. Nayna for surrogacy. The process of surrogacy had already begun when the couples signed a divorce. Their baby didn’t get Japanese nationality nor Indian nationality.

The Japanese government provided a one-year visa for the child and she returned to her native. 

It is after this incident that the Indian government banned the surrogacy of foreign couples. The Indian law also bans commercial surrogacy. Now, the surrogate shouldn’t be paid the extra fees for being a surrogate. If she is willing to help an infertile woman without any exchange of money in return, then she can be the surrogate. Exploiting poor women for the sake of money is no longer entertained in India.
