New Delhi, 26 July, 2018– Bourn Hall India, recently celebrated the 40th Anniversary of IVF, which is marked by the birth of the world’s first IVF baby, Louise Brown on the 25th of July 1978, thanks to the pioneering work of Bourn Hall founders, Robert Edwards and Patrick Steptoe. Bourn Hall Fertility Centre in India would like to celebrate the joy of parenthood with all couples who have conceivedthrough IVF.
Dr. David Robertson, Group Medical Director, affiliated with the inventors of IVF, Bourn Hall, UK, commented:” We are extremely happy to have helped so many couples to parenthood. Since 1978, ‘Bourn Hall’ hasbecome synonymous with IVF and most of what is today the standard treatment protocol for IVF procedures, has been pioneered and established by Bourn Hall. Our greatest reward however is to see how couples evolve to happy families – and having been able to support and help them.”
“Our most important message today goes out to all those who struggle with fertility issues”, said Hoda Abou-Jamra, Group CEO, Bourn Hall International. “You have choices and options to overcome these issues and it is our mission to educate, inform and offer you the right fertility choice for your health, your family and your life.”
When people picture an ideal family – and this is a world-wide stereotype – there is a typecast of a large, bustling household full of children and an even larger extended clan of cousins, aunts and uncles.This stereotype is becoming less realistic, partially due to a growing infertility epidemic which is making it harder for couples everywhere in the world and of course also in the India to conceive at all, yet alone grow large families. In India, it is estimated that 1 in every 4 couples is struggling with infertility issues and needs treatment.
Louise Brown, who is an ambassador of hope to millions of couples throughout the world struggling with infertility, had even sent a personal video message to Bourn Hall Fertility Centre thanking all who work hard to make parenthood an option for couples.
