with a symbolic illustration of “The Test Tube
Baby,” six days after Louis Joy Brown was
delivered through Caesarean operation at the
Oldham General Hospital.
Si Louise Joy Brown ang tinaguriang “first test tube baby.” Datapuwa’t hindi naman siya nalikha sa loob ng test tube katulad ng maaaring isipin ng marami. Ang in-vitro fertilization (IVF) o pagsasama ng ovum ng isang babae at spermtozoa ng isang lalaki sa isang fluid medium, ay ginagawa sa isang petri dish. Ang fertilized ovum o zygote ay ibinabalik sa bahay-bata o uterus ng babae na ang layon ay magkaroon siya ng matagumpay na pagbubuntis at pagsisilang ng sanggol. Ang IVF ay paraang binuo nina Dr. Patrick Steptoe at Dr. Robert Edwards. Sumailalim sa procedure na ito si Lesley Brown noong November 10, 1977. Matapos ang 256 na araw, noong July 25, 1978, si Louise Joy Brown ay ipinanganak sa pamamagitan ng Caesarean operation.
