Bhopal: Twin baby girls were born to a 35
-year-old surrogate mother, hired by a Non-Resident Indian
(NRI) couple, at a hospital here, doctors said on Tuesday.

The twins were born on May 12 and all three are in
good condition, infertility expert Monica Singh and child
specialist Randhir Singh told reporters here.

The woman, whose name was not disclosed, was to
receive Rs one lakh as compensation by the couple as per an
agreement between them, they said.

But overjoyed at the birth of the twins, the couple,
whose identity was also not disclosed, paid Rs 2 lakh to her,
the doctors said, adding the NRIs also paid for expenses like
food and medicine.

The NRI woman was unable to conceive as her uterus
had been removed. Following this, the couple opted for
surrogate pregnancy, they said.
