Nagaland Gets Its First Test-Tube Baby

The 17-year-old wait of the Zhimomi family living in Nagaland to hear the cry of a newborn is over.

After nearly 20 years since India got its first test-tube bay, Akheli became the first one in Nagaland to deliver a test tube baby.

Akheli successfully delivered a health boy weighing 2.5 kg at the Faith Hospital in Dimapur on June 3.

The couple consulted all major hospitals in the region but all in vain. They ultimately landed at the Faith Hospital in December 2005 for in-vitro fertilization treatment.

With successful treatment, the baby was born after 36 weeks after the fertilised egg was placed inside the mother's womb.

Thanking doctors and god for making it possible, Akheli says now I have finally got a baby boy.

More excited than the parents were the doctors.

Sukhato, the doctor at Faith Hospital said: "During my last 27 years of practice, I was actually in pain to see the untold suffering faced by biologically handicapped couple. I am grateful to god that at least we could help this infertile couple."

The couple has named the baby Hekhulu meaning "Blessing from God" in the local dialect.

The world's first test-tube baby, Louise Brown, was born on July 25, 1978 in England. There have been over a million children born through in-vitro fertilization since then.
