This week my hope is Bourn Hall.
Bourn Hall Clinic was founded in 1980 by Professor Robert Edwards and Patrick Steptoe and was the world's first IVF clinic. Last year Professor Edwards was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine for his groundbreaking work in developing In Vitro Fertilisation along with the late Patrick Steptoe, resulting in the first IVF pregnancy and the birth of Louise Brown on 25th July 1978. Over 4 million babies have since been born worldwide as a result of assisted reproductive technology and over 10,000 were conceived at Bourn Hall, including Sunnyboy.
