Over 5 million IVF babies born - with over 4,000 at Manchester Fertility

2nd August 2013 in Infertility

This information was correct at the time of publishing. It may not reflect our current practices, prices or regulations.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been just 35 years since the birth of the very first IVF baby in the world, Louise Brown in Oldham, Lancashire.

And in that time, thanks to IVF advances, over 5.5m babies have now been born across the world – with over 4,000 of those babies born thanks our team here at Manchester Fertility.

We are rightly proud of our consistent success rates and long-standing expertise in IVF and infertility treatments. We first opened the doors to our clinic in 1986 – just eight years after Louise Brown was born in 1978.

In those days, IVF was truly in its infancy, a technique which was still advancing and developing. But for the first time, our team could offer hope to those who couldn’t conceive naturally, where before there simply was no hope.

Our passion for what we do and for you our patients, is still as strong today as it was then. Many of our team have been with us since the very beginning, and as we begin the start of a new era in our new clinic here in Cheadle, Cheshire, we hope that you will see just why so many people continue to trust us to help them have a family.

We like to say that when you begin your journey with us, you become part of the Manchester Fertility family. Because that is how we see ourselves – we are not a faceless corporate clinic, only interested in costs and increasing patient numbers.

We are a family unit, a place where we work together as a team, sharing our expertise, to give you the very best advice and treatments we can, to help you have a baby of your own. Whether you’re in a same-sex relationship, a single person wanting a family or a couple having trouble getting pregnant, we will help you no matter what your circumstances, with empathy, care and compassion at all times.

But who knows what will happen in the next 35 years when it comes to infertility treatments? Will we be able to ensure that every embryo will successfully implant thanks to advances in selection techniques? That every IVF cycle will have an even higher chance of resulting in a baby at the end of it?

Whatever happens in the future, we can assure you of one thing – that our commitment to you will not change. We very much look forward to helping you have your baby.
