'Wanted: Pioneer IVF Babies' Bay Area Fertility Doctors Launch National Search for First IVF Babies Born 25 Years Ago
Date:2/12/2009

California medical practice to celebrate 25th anniversary by re-uniting up to 280 of America's oldest 'test-tube babies' in June

SAN RAMON, Calif., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- To celebrate its 25th anniversary as of the one of the nation's first private IVF clinics, the Reproductive Science Center of the San Francisco Bay Area (RSC) announced today the launch of "Wanted: Pioneer IVF Babies. Are You One?" - a nationwide six-month campaign to reconnect with nearly 300 of their first success stories, conceived in the years 1984 through 1986.

Established in 1983, just two years after the first successful birth through in vitro fertilization (IVF) in the United States, RSC was responsible for the nation's second successful birth of a baby from a frozen embryo.

RSC's first baby born through IVF was born March 18, 1985. RSC has begun a search for the baby and her parents. RSC physicians hope to meet as many of their first patients as possible at a special Family Day reunion, June 14, 2009, in San Ramon. The oldest baby found will have his/her travel expenses paid to attend the reunion. RSC's Facebook page features more information on its 25th Anniversary and nationwide search for its original IVF babies.

"Our first babies have grown up and no doubt scattered far and wide," said Dr. Donald Galen, one of the founding physicians of the practice and a fertility expert still active at RSC. "We also wish to reconnect with them for further study of the impact of IVF on their lives and to continue to collect long term data to help future generations."
