Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) has come a long way since the early 1980s when a few Australian Universities and hospitals started their journey with IVF and associated technologies. Many couples went through numerous cycles of IVF without success while the clinical and scientific techniques were developed.

The first pregnancy was in the early days of 1980 at the Royal Women's Hospital in Melbourne and was followed by more...
