My wife and I have been trying to get pregnant for 7 years now. After a number of miscarriages, we were running out of patience and money for treatment. As a last resort, we decided to visit India for IVF treatments. We were pleasantly surprised by the professionalism and infrastructure that the IVF centre had to offer.
