Three miscarriages, three failed IVF cycles, three unsuccessful IUI procedures, three surrogacies that went awry, and a messed up caesarian delivery...but Vanraj’s arrival, three months before his actual due date, has been totally worth it.
"If possible I would like to adopt a child. Just the other day Alina told me rather solemnly 'I will not become a mama. There are so many children who have no mama. I will be their mama when I grow up'.”

"This includes general anxiety or an obsessive compulsive behaviour pattern, spanning all domains in a child's life, from peer pressure to the competitive streak to be the best to issues related to their own social standing, to even simple day to day activities," says Salla.
