Married for over eight years, Mumbai-based Nupur, a chartered accountant, and her husband Nirmal (names changed) have been trying various ways to have a child.
After going through a cycle of in-vitro fertilisation treatment, Nupur became pregnant, but she suffered a miscarriage when she was two and a half months pregnant. Heartbroken, they decided to go for surrogacy last year.
The couple hired a surrogate mother in Anand, Gujarat, to have their baby. They even took a crash course on how to parent newborns without any assistance from family or nurses. Everything was going fine until COVID-19 hit the world. The lockdown meant that the couple could not move out.
On April 26, they got the news that they have been blessed with a pair of twins — a boy and a girl. Their joy knew no bounds. Through a video call, they saw their babies, but were not content; they wanted to be with them and bring them home.
