Farah Khan, one of the most discussed names in the Indian film fraternity, not only for her being multi-talented but also for pioneering a cause; mothering through IVF. Yes, this strong Bollywood personality, Farah Khan, director-choreographer, has opted for IVF treatment to get into parenthood. She takes immense pride in her decision and now enjoying her life with her beautiful children.
Farah Khan, who is 52 years old now, chose to get IVF treatment nine years ago and was blessed with three kids; two daughters and a son. She was married at the age of 40 to film-maker Shirish Kunder, and the couple was very much interested in starting their family soon but natural pregnancy was difficult that time and It was high time that they started thinking of other options. IVF came as a blessing for them. According to her, she opted for IVF because she had a choice either to go childless or IVF. There was no room for doubts. She said, “I was 43 when I had my kids, and my biological clock has stopped ticking long time ago.”
Like many modern women, Farah did not get time to think about pregnancy because she was busy with her career and also, she did not find the right person to get married and start a family. She favors IVF strongly because she is confident about her choices in life as she does not believe in regrets. She says “Later in life; there should not be any regrets. Sometimes you have children too early and regret it, ‘If I had, my career would have been different,’ and sometimes when you don’t have, you miss that opportunity.”
She inspires and encourages the couples who are facing difficulties in conceiving to go for IVF treatment. She says that there are lots of factors that create hurdles in conceiving. However, now such people need not be disappointed as there are solutions available. Being positive, persistent and patient towards the results will surely pay off. She says “God bless IVF because it’s never too late to conceive anymore.”
However, IVF is a specialized technique and going through IVF is a complicated procedure. So, it is highly important that anybody planning to have IVF treatment should approach only expert fertility clinics and expert fertility doctors only. Bourn Hall Fertility Clinic, a Nobel Prize winner, is regarded as a pioneer in IVF. It has highly learned and experienced fertility doctors to support patients.
