About us

A bit of background

On July 25th 1978, Dr. Patrick Steptoe and Professor Sir Robert Edwards1 created the first IVF baby at Bourn Hall Clinic, Cambridge, United Kingdom

Dr. Jayashree Bhattacharya, Dr. Joy as Robert Edwards called her, was a member of that team of seven who achieved history

They were able to deliver the first baby, Louise Joy Brown, using the technique of In-Vitro Fertilisation better known as IVF (or test-tube baby), by which an egg is fertilised outside the body and the embryo transfered back onto the uterus. Louise Joy Brown is today a mother herself, of a healthy young boy that she has conceived naturally.

Dr. Jayashree Bhattacharya spent over two decades in Britain as Senior Consultant Gynæcologist for the Bourn Hall Clinic, and Honorary Lecturer for the Department of Obstetrics and Gynæcology of Cambridge University.

She established the first IVF Centre in Eastern India at the Institute of Reproductive Medicine in Kolkata, in 1990, and started the first unit of AHIIRC in 1998 in Ranchi, Jharkhand.

Today, AHIIRC is present in Ranchi, New Delhi, Kolkata, Siliguri, Patna, Durgapur, Bankura, Lucknow, Varanasi, Midnapur, and is probably the largest and most successful practice in India.

It's never just about services, but always about people

and about a clear vision

We are committed to meeting the vast unmet demand for family planning, by providing access to reproductive health information and solutions for women.

It implies educating and empowering women when it comes to reproductive health and their bodies, particularly in making sure that they are getting their information from a reliable source.

Encouraging women to understand what choices are available and how those choices impact their lives and the lives of their families is core to our institution.

When you've been successful for nearly 40 years

you must have done a few things right

Reproductive health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being in all matters relating to the reproductive system and to its functions and processes.

Age is a determining factor and success can only be determined by taking all these into account.

Our knowledge is sourced from the inception of assisted reproductive techniques, and we provide you with an unrivalled experience of successful practice of assisted reproductive specialised services.

State of the art technics and technologies

Some fertility problems are more easily treated than others. In general, as a woman ages, her chances of getting pregnant go down while her risk of miscarriage goes up. As you get older, your doctor may recommend that you skip some of the steps younger couples usually take. Unfortunately, chances of having a baby decrease with each passing year.

It's important to understand that even if you are able to get pregnant, no treatment can guarantee a healthy baby. On the other hand, many advances in infertility have helped many couples have babies.

Before you start a 'journey', it is important to talk about how far you want to go with the treatments. For example, you may want to try medicine but don't want to have surgery. You may change your mind during your treatment, but it's good to start with a clear idea of what you want your limits to be.

The cost involved in the treatments for fertility can be expensive. If cost is a concern for you, do not hesitate to ask how much the medicines and procedures cost. Thinking about this ahead of time may help keep you from becoming emotionally and financially drained from trying a series of treatments you hadn't planned for.

AHIIRC provides you with many alternatives from today's most advanced Assisted Reproductive Technics and will be able to respond with the best solution for your choices.
