40 years ago Louis Brown was born. She is the first test tube baby. Today countless number of families have had their wishes come through via the same process.
I am certain that in those early days there were lots of cynics who thought this was as good as it was ever going to get that science cannot develop any further than that.
Soon after Ms Brown’s birth, Australia’s first IVF baby, Candice Reed, was born on June 23, 1980
Both babies were born using a woman’s natural ovulation cycle.
Professor Trounson and his colleagues started trialling fertility drugs to try to control the cycle.
“It worked. Suddenly everything became possible,” he said.
According to mews, Professor Wood’s team also pioneered techniques to inject sperm into eggs to overcome male infertility; egg donation resulting in the world’s first donor egg pregnancy; and freezing embryos, which resulted in the world’s first frozen embryo pregnancy.
These break through in reproductive technology was made possible by vision and trial.
Without which thousands would not have achieved their dreams.
