Happy Birthday Louise Brown




The first IVF baby was born 34 years ago today.

Lesley and John Brown paved the way for over five million IVF babies to be born into this world and I couldn’t be more grateful for their sacrifice. Their journey through infertility was done on blind faith. There was no previous medical data for doctors to rely on, no other patients to lean on for support, no idea of how the medications would impact Lesley’s body, and a success rate of zero.

Yet from zero came a baby and from that baby came five million more.




  1. With gratitude to Lesley and John Brown.
