READY FOR RELEASE SEPTEMBER 2018
2018 marks the 40th Anniversary of the birth of the first IVF baby, Louise Brown in Oldham, England. In the late 70s, IVF didn’t yet have the profile it does today and new techniques were developing all the time. The first babies were known as ‘test tube babies’ in spite of the fact they were conceived in a Petri dish. Since Assisted Reproductive Technology became available, it is estimated that there have been 5 million IVF births. So that leads us to ‘My Incredible Creation’. This is a book for a new generation of children who want to know where they came from.
This is a story that helps de-mystify IVF. Using real terms but doing so in an accessible, humorous and simplified way, ‘My Incredible Creation’ will help adults approach the topic with children in a positive way. It will leave children feeling empowered about their origins and help them understand what little miracles they are.
