Topic: Test Tube Babies

Topic Description:

August 6th marks a significant day in Indian medical history. On this day in 1986, India's second test-tube baby, Harsha Chawda, was born in Mumbai.

The first baby born through the IVF procedure in India was Kanupriya Agarwal. She was born on October 3, 1978, just weeks after the birth of the world's first IVF baby in England.

It was on July 25th, 1978 that British gynaecologist Patrick Steptoe and Nobel Prize-winning physiologist Robert Edwards etched their names in medical history.

It's been 41 years since IVF came into being. And since then, an estimated 8 million babies have been born worldwide as a result of this procedure.
