Avenues Clinic records birth of first test tube baby in over 20 years

Avenues Clinic has recorded the birth of the first test tube baby in over two decades after the in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) programme was re-introduced last year.

The procedure was pioneered at the Avenues Clinic in the 1980s by obstetrician, Tony Robertson, but discontinued in 2000 when he briefly left the country. Speaking during the reintroduction of the progamme last year, Avenues Clinic managing director, Merissa Kambani said the 52 people, who were conceived through Robertson’s in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) programme, were now adults.

In-vitro fertilisation is a process where a woman’s eggs and her husband’s sperm are brought together outside the womb in a dish in a laboratory. After embryos have begun forming one or two of the embryos are implanted in the woman’s womb, where they continue developing. Excess embryos formed can then be frozen for future implantation.
