Top 5 Hollywood celebrities who opened up about their fertility journey

IVF has gained so much popularity since the birth of Louis Brown and now is normalised by many celebrities which makes it easier on couples suffering from infertility to go ahead with their treatment options and not stop dreaming about a family. These 10 celebrities are highly influential and have certainly normalised how people look at infants born through Assisted Reproductive technology (ART).

The word infertile is no longer used to describe people who cannot conceive naturally. The so-called infertile patients according to the past are now referred to as sub-fertile patients. This is because most of the patients referred to as infertile have a high chance of creating a healthy happy and fertile offspring and this has been proven well by these fearless and confident human beings.

Doctors who help couples who face it difficult to conceive naturally are called Fertility specialists. They along with highly skilled technicians called Embryologists, fertilize the gametes of both male and female partners in an IVF laboratory, grow the embryos for three to five days under highly monitored conditions and finally implant the embryo/s inside the uterus of the female patient. A range of courses of different levels are available for both people with life science background and clinicians on reproductive medicine and infertility. The courses at Medline academics cover the theoretical aspects online and make you spend very little of your precious time on skill-based training that are conducted in their centre at Bangalore.
