IVF – In Vitro Fertilization Procedures

The IVF process involves:

  • Stimulating multiple follicles and eggs to develop
  • Egg retrieval to get the eggs
  • Fertilizing the eggs in the laboratory
  • Embryo transfer to the uterus

Louise Brown was the first IVF baby in the world. She was born in July of 1978 in England. Louise was 28 (in 2006) when she had her own baby (without IVF).

  • Hundreds of thousands of children are now born every year as a result of IVF
