First IVF baby to un­veil new dis­play

Bristol Post - - NEWS -

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.
