Louise Brown

On July 25, 1978 Louise Brown was the first person ever to be born through IVF. Her birth changed the world as it was the first time a human being had been born through science rather than as a result of two people having sex. Louise grew up at the centre of the debate about the morality of In Vitro Fertilisation. Forty years on there are now between six and eight million IVF children in the world. Louise will talk about the beginnings of IVF and her perspective on the way the world has been changed by the actions of her parents and the work of scientist Robert Edwards and gynaecologist Patrick Steptoe.
