Founder, Seeds of Innocence IVF
Seeds of Innocence is not only a fertility clinic for the infertile but is a passion driven center providing exemplary and phenomenal services incessantly. Dr. Gauri Agarwal MBBS, MD, DNB Director, founder and fertility specialist of Seeds of Innocence is a woman of substance delivering multimillion dollar smiles in many a life. In her own words she describes the journey so far:
While pursuing fellowship program at University of Gent, Belgium in reproductive medicine I realized that spearhead technological integration for array of services in the field of infertility is much needed in India to extend maximum benefits to the patients. This was just a dream and to turn it into reality was a tedious and next to impossible task as many corporates and experienced fertility specialists were ruling the reign. After completing the fellowship, I came back to India and started to take steps and initially laid a small IVF unit at Yashoda Superspeciality hospital, Ghaziabad. The thought was noble but the path tough and thorny as the misconceptions about infertility, illiteracy and superstitions in the rural areas refrained the couples to open up and reach the clinics. To educate the masses about infertility, its causes and treatment was the goal on priority and I roamed in the rural areas like Dadri, Hapur, Pilakhua, Loni and many other outskirts of Delhi/NCR. With a handful of patient the IVF department at Yashoda Hospital took its charge to gain the acceptance and trust by providing cost effective and result oriented treatment.
Accomplishments. Aesthetically speaking, running an IVF clinic was not the aim, however the ardor of doing innovative and unconventional work in the field of infertility led me relentlessly work on my mission of “Changing Lives, Bringing Joy”. In a chain of methodical and decisive planning I harnessed myself in activities like small camps and free opd’s in the villages to educate them so that the prevailing problem of infertility may get medical acceptance.
Laid the foundation of Seeds of Innocence fertility hospital at Malviya Nagar, New Delhi in collaboration with University Hospital Gent, Belgium inaugurated by Hon’ble Home minister Shri Rajnath Singh to provide par excellence quality treatment of international décor.
The challenges in the success rate of IVF made me restless and out of the box thinking again led me take a leap in the unique and latest technology of next generation sequencing, genetics with wonderful qpcr technology in the name of ”Genekart” with the blessings of Health Minister Shri J. P Nadda. It is also internationally accredited by Gendia University, Belgium.
The implantation success rate of IVF dramatically enhances upto 80% by transferring genetically testing embryos as compared to conventional IVF/ICSI. Seeds of Innocence is the pilot fertility clinic to own its inhouse genetic lab in North India.
The magnitude of the problem and its complexity is solvable by creative thinking and this inspired me for the expansion of Seeds of Innocence from one to four centers in Delhi, Ghaziabad and Meerut.
