Since the birth of the first “test-tube baby” in 1978, fertility techniques, known as IVF (in vitro fertilisation) have gone through major leaps, opening the possibility of becoming parents to millions. The constantly developing technology means that treatment is becoming cheaper and older people can also dream of parenthood.
