Louise Joy Brown (born 25 July 1978) is the first person to have been conceived by in vitro fertilization, or IVF. She weighed 5 pounds, 12 oz. Her parents, Lesley and John Brown, had been trying to conceive for nine years. They faced complications of blocked fallopian tubes. Although the media referred to Brown as a "test tube baby", her conception actually took place in a petri dish.
