25 July : World’s first test tube baby was born

Giving birth to a life is a blessing for a woman. But there are woman who are not blessed. But only before today in 1978, exactly 40 year ago. Because the day changed the lives of such woman. Know details inside.

Louise Joy Brown, now 38 and a mother of 2 sons, is world’s first human to have been born after conception by in vitro fertilisation, or IVF. She was born in Manchester, England, to parents Lesley and Peter Brown. The healthy baby was delivered shortly before midnight by caesarean section and weighed in at five pounds, 12 ounces.

Before giving birth to Louise, Lesley Brown had suffered years of infertility due to blocked fallopian tubes. In November 1977, she underwent the then-experimental IVF procedure. A mature egg was removed from one of her ovaries and combined in a laboratory dish with her husband’s sperm to form an embryo. The embryo then was implanted into her uterus a few days later. And today in 1978 Louis Brown was born.

Louis brown has a sister Natalie, born several years later, also through IVF. Both of them had natural conception and gave birth to their children.

Dr. Subhash Mukhopadhyay(Mukherjee) created history when he became the first physician in India (and second in the world after British physicians Patrick Steptoeand Robert Edwards) to perform the In vitro fertilization resulting in a test tube baby “Durga” (Kanupriya Agarwal) on October 3, 1978.

दुनिया की पहली टेस्‍ट ट्यूब बेबी लुइस ब्राउन का जन्‍म साल 1978 में 25 जुलाई को हुआ… जन्म लेने के बाद सभी अखबारों की सुर्खियां बनी लुइसी का वजन 2.608 किलो था… विश्व के पहले टेस्ट ट्यूब बेबी बनने से वह एक सेलिब्रिटी बन गई… लुइस के पैदा होने के 7 साल बाद उसकी बहन नैटली का जन्म भी टेस्ट ट्यूब बेबी प्रक्रिया से हुआ… लुइस के पैरेंट्स लेसली और पीटर ब्राउन थे… ये अपने आप में एक चमत्कार से कम नहीं था… लेकिन असलियत में ये एक ऐसी पहल थी जिसने दुनिया से बेऔलाद होने का अभिशाप लगभग खत्म कर दिया… आज इस तकनीक की बदौलत लाखों परिवारों के घर में खुशियां है…
