First IVF baby to unveil new display
The Lesley Brown Archive has recently been donated to Bristol Culture.
Objects include presents from the Brazilian Embassy, hate mail from America, and a letter telling Lesley Brown she is in the early stages of pregnancy.
Martin added: “This year Louise and I have travelled to four continents to attend events celebrating the birth of IVF.
“IVF is now a global industry employing thousands of people with new developments happening all the time.
“The Lesley Brown archive was deposited in Bristol despite requests from some of the top archives across the world for it to be deposited with them because Lesley and Louise were proud to be Bristolian and wanted the connection with the city to be remembered.”
Entry is free and tea and coffee will be served. Louise will also be signing copies of her book 40 Years of IVF – My Life as the world’s first test tube baby, which was published in paperback by Bristol Books for the first time this year, chronicling how IVF started and what happened to Louise and her family over the years.
