We are so excited to announce that the wonderful Bourn Hall Clinic is offering our next free IVF.
What makes this so very special is that the Bourn Hall Clinic was founded by IVF pioneers Mr Patrick Steptoe and Professor Robert Edwards, who were responsible for bringing into the world the first IVF test tube baby, Louise Brown in 1978.
It is in these amazing gentlemen’s honour that we, at IVF Babble, felt it so important to mark the 40th anniversary of IVF, together with leading clinics, by offering free IVFs around the globe.
Here the wonderful Michael Macnamee of Bourn Hall talks about their fantastic clinic and this wonderful IVF offer
We spoke to Bourn Hall on why they have decided to be a part of the free IVF initative
The 40th Anniversary of IVF is particularly poignant to us at Bourn Hall as this is where it all started. The founders of IVF Professor Robert Edwards and Mr Patrick Steptoe believed that everyone had the right to have a family and we feel that being part of this giveaway is an opportunity to continue their vision and honour their legacy.
And here they tell us more about the wonderful Bourn Hall Clinic
Bourn Hall was founded in 1980 by Professor Edwards and Mr Steptoe, the people responsible for the birth of the world’s first IVF baby, Louise Brown. We now have clinics across the East of England and are extremely proud of our consistently high success rates.
Family is at the core of everything we do, we consider our patients an extension of the Bourn Hall Family and strive to help as many people as possible achieve their dream. We know that family comes in all different forms and that every patient’s journey is individual and unique and we seek to support them every step of the way.
Bourn Hall has helped create over 18,000 babies and currently a Bourn Hall baby is born every 8 hours.
We can’t thank Bourn Hall enough for this incredibly kind offer.
