Over 4,000 test-tube babies born at Tu Du hospital

As many as 4,060 test-tube babies were born at Tu Du Obstetrics Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City.
Hospital Deputy Director Hoang Thi Diem Tuyet made public the figure at a ceremony held on April 24 to celebrate the 14th founding anniversary of the hospital’s in vitro fertilisation (IVF) unit.
Established in August 1997, this was the first of its kind in Vietnam.
On April 30, 1998, Vietnam’s first three babies were born at the unit, using IVF technique and since then the number of test-tube babies has reached 9,000 nationwide.
Test-tube baby is a revolutionary treatment for those couples who can’t have a baby on their own because of various types of infertility.
According to statistics, between 7-10 percent of Vietnam’s fertility age population are infertile with about 50 percent of them being women.
