41 years ago today the first IVF baby was born

Fifty years ago, the first ever landing of men on the moon was heralded as a giant step for mankind. Indeed it was, but another more recent development has altered the personal and social landscape of our times in ways that have arguably even more impact. Just 41 years ago today, the world’s first IVF baby was born. She was also the first IVF baby in the UK which was, and remains in many ways, a world leader in human reproductive medicine.
