The Hindu Business Line : Babies waiting to happen: "Interestingly, even foreigners are making a steady beeline to India. 'A lawyer from America came to us on her own. She had never been to India before,' says Dr Aniruddha Malpani of Malpani Infertility Clinic in Mumbai, to indicate changing Western mindsets about healthcare in 'third world' countries.
A driving factor is cost. One IVF cycle costs $20,000 in the US and £3,500 in the UK, says Dr Malpani (also the first, together with wife Anjali, to open India's first sperm bank in Mumbai in 1990). Quality treatment is available in India at a much cheaper cost."
