In vitro fertilization turns 35


More than 5 millions babies all over the world have been conceived through In Vitro Fertilization, and this number is even more amazing having in account it has been just 35 years since the first birth was achieved.

Louise Brown was born at Oldham General Hospital (United Kingdom) the 25th of July, in 1978, through the pioneering technology developed by doctors Patrick Steptoe and Robert Edwards, whom won the Nobel Prize afterwards.

Nowadays, the first “test-tube baby” is already a mother, she is expecting a second child but she never need medicine to get pregnant.
