This Day in History July 25 歷史上的今天7月25日

Having children is a dream for many people. For some couples, having a baby naturally just doesn't work. On this date in 1978, the first test-tube baby, Louise Brown, was born in the UK. Louise's parents decided to try a new way to have babies. It involved taking eggs out of Louise's mother and sperm out of Louise's father. The egg was fertilized by the sperm and then reinserted into Louise's mother's uterus. Nine months later, Louise was born. This method is now frequently used to help couples have babies.
