What is In Vitro Fertilization or IVF?
IVF is commonly known as ‘test tube baby’. It involves stimulating the ovaries to make multiple eggs grow and then taking the eggs out of the woman, fertilizing them in the laboratory with her partner’s sperm and transferring embryos back to her uterus. Egg + sperm form an embryo. The embryo implants in the uterus to grow into a baby.
The first IVF baby in the world (Louise Brown) was born in July of 1978 in England. Louise Brown was 28 when she delivered her own baby in 2006. Her baby was conceived by IVF. Hundreds of thousands of children are now born annually as a result of the IVF technique.
After the 25th, July 1978, the world would never be the same again. This was the day Louise Brown was born. Louise Brown was the first person to be born through in vitro fertilisation (IVF) and with her birth gave hope to sub fertile couples worldwide.
