Even after the baby was born, the parents were kept away from her due to a nationwide lockdown. Like her name which translates to a golden angel, she flew her way home. A special air ambulance brought the surrogate baby home to her parents on March 29, TOI reports.
The parents, however, were very nervous about the fact that they could not receive the baby.
"After a lot of running around, the parents could arrange for an air ambulance from Delhi to have the baby collected from Surat and delivered to them," Dr Pooja Nadkari Singh, a gynecologist who delivered the baby, told TOI.
The baby landed at a hospital in Bengaluru. She was first kept there for 17 hours, after which the parents took her home.
“We ensured that the baby spends minimal time at the airport, looking at her fragility and so got her a special boarding pass,” Dr Singh added.
Sonpari’s mother visited the doctor a year ago after which she was advised to go for surrogacy with IVF treatment. The 42-year-old father said that the entire family is now celebrating her arrival and that it is a magical moment for them.
