Live birth with vitrified frozen egg in 2008. Egg/oocyte is very fragile and still in a rapidly developing stage when it comes out of women’s body. To freeze it at minus 196-degree centigrade, warm it to 37 degrees, fertilize, make good embryos and achieve a normal healthy child was a very new science and technology. BFI is proud to achieve first in India when even a very few babies were born through this technique in the entire world.
“IVF Babies Meet 2004”. Unique meet of more than 100 IVF babies conceived at Bavishi fertility institute, Ahmedabad. At a time when IVF was new and had lots of misconceptions, fears, stigmas attached, this was a path-breaking effort by BFI to spread awareness in society.

Thalassemia is a disease for which the only permanent cure is by bone marrow transplantation. To get a matching bone marrow donor is extremely difficult. The couples who already have a thalassemia-infected child can conceive a not thalassemia-affected child, which is too a matching donor for the affected sibling. BFI used PGD + HLA matching technology and helped a couple produce a normal donor sibling (2021)! A very few cases have recorded the world over.
BFI has already helped two more couples in achieving the same and still counting.

BFI offered cutting edge technology to give her successful pregnancy and safe live-born twins. That, too, in the very first attempt.
IVF was a new technology and very fast developing science in 1998. To bring that technology to India and establish an IVF clinic of international standard was a big challenge.

What more would a couple want?
An unlimited number of couples, which can achieve a child through IVF, do not achieve it. The most important reason is incomplete treatment. The most important reasons for not completing are no confidence or surety of getting a child even with unlimited treatment, cost of unlimited treatment and fear of losing all the money even if treatment fails, the effect of unlimited treatment cycles on the body etc.
The vast experience of BFI has found the best solution to this problem. It gives the couples the strength to finish the limited treatment with “All round safety”.
