 In Vitro Fertilization in Demand

Even as the world's first test tube baby celebrated her 30th birth last week, the process through which she was conceived has seen a boom. Lousie Brown was delivered by C-section through IVF devised by Robert Edwards and Patrick Steptoe from Cambridge University.

In vitro fertilization has become a boon for couples unable to have kids. Since 1978 some 3.5 million babies have been born through IVF and most of the cases involve women aged between 30 and 40.
