The management of University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital (UPTH) says the hospital last Monday, recorded a feat in its health care delivery service to the public as the hospital had delivered its first In- Vitro Fertilization ( IVF ) conception baby.

The Chief Medical Director said the mother of the new baby was admitted into the hospital for IVF conception nine months ago and today, she is carrying her heathy child.
Prof Ugboma who appealed to mothers looking for babies and the public to always patronise the hospital for a safe IVF conception, saying the cost of carrying out the procedure is affordable compared to private hospitals.

Describing the process as a hitch free, Ugboma thanked team of UPTH medical experts led by prof John Ikimalo of Conception Unit and Dr Preye Fiebai of Obstetric and Gynaecology and the nurses for the successful feat in the delivery.
He admonished women with delivery challenges or those looking for the fruit of the womb to approach the hospital for a safe IVF conception.
UPTH, the CMD said is well equipped with competent and experienced medical team and manpower to handle a successful IVF procedure to any woman irrespective of her age.

Speaking with The Tide on her hospital bed while breast feeding the IVF baby, the mother of the baby said she came to UPTH for the procedure nine months ago and today she is carrying a healthy bouncing baby.
The 34-year old mother who did not want her names in print said she was without a baby for ten years after marriage and had undergone some operations in search of a baby outside UPTH.

On how much she spent for the IVF in UPTH, the happy mother said she spent relatively Eight Hundred Thousand Naira, N800,000 for the procedure compared to what private hospital charges.

800k is not cheap. Even 500k is still not cheap. When all D Hospitals now provide this IVF service, it will reduce to 250k by force. Soon enough

There are universities and there are universities.

Ubth is one of the pioneer leaders in IVF in Nigeria.

Besides, Nigeria is overpopulated, people should learn to adopt.

Stop talking nonsense. I was the embryologist that did the procedure. Out of the patients treated, she alone made it. So please we never borrow babies.
