"When I was growing up they would ask things like how do you fit in a test tube and things like that!

"It's quite scary to think I'm the first of them all, but it's also a nice feeling that perhaps if I hadn't been born then all those people wouldn't be here, and IVF has helped so many couples."

--Louise Brown, the world's first "test-tube baby," who celebrates her 31st birthday today. [Ed. note: My spouse and I are one of the aforesaid couples.]
