Woman lost her son to cancer but gets grandchildren years later; know more

After her son succumbed to Cancer two years ago, a Pune based woman now has his offspring in the family through his preserved semen.

The new kind of initiative took place in Pune.

The woman recently became a grandmother to twins born via surrogacy methods using her son’s cryo-preserved semen.

The doctors at Pune’s Sahyadri Hospital performed the in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) procedure and fused Prathamesh Patil’s semen with the eggs of a donor to form embryos.

The semen had been extracted and preserved long before his death in Germany.

The embryos were then transferred into the womb of a surrogate mother, who gave birth to the twins – a boy and a girl.

Prathamesh Patil’s mother Rajashree Patil said in 2010 her son had gone to Germany to pursue a master’s degree when he was diagnosed with a brain tumour.

She said that it was during a procedure that they were able to preserve his semen.

The woman is Rajashree Patil,a teacher at a school in Pune.

After his death, the mother had a desire to get back her son and soon contacted the semen bank in Germany where Prathamesh Patil’s semen was cryo-preserved.

After completing the formalities, the semen was brought to India.

The mother then approached Sahyadri Hospital for an IVF procedure with the help of his son’s semen.
