National Fertility Awareness Week is 30 October  – 5 November.

One of the focus areas of the week is commemorating 40 years since 10 November 1977, when Louise Joy Brown was conceived.

As part of this, Fertility Network UK are asking patients and professionals to send them their #IVFis40 memories – stories and pictures- from the last four decades.

Memories (both positive and negative) should be sent to The memories can be personal ones, or related to IVF milestones, or whatever is most striking for you about 40 years of IVF.

Responses will be posted on the awareness week website and shared on social media; they can be anonymous.
