India, 26th July 2018: Bourn Hall India, recently celebrated the 40th Anniversary of IVF, 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.


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.


“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.”


Dr. Puneet Rana Arora, Medical Director, and a renowned Senior Consultant in Reproductive Medicine, commented, “The birth of the world’s first IVF baby, Louise Brown, 40 years ago, bears testimony to excellence in clinical training at Bourn Hall wherein all the doctors are specifically trained in Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). Our greatest reward is to see all the couples happy with a complete family.”


Louise Brown, an ambassador of hope to millions of couples throughout the world struggling with infertility, sent a personal video message to Bourn Hall Fertility Centre, thanking those who work to make parenthood an option for couples.
