Louise Mullinder (Louise Brown), who was the first human to be born through IVF, has paid tribute to Sir Robert Edwards.
It was really sad to hear the news today. I have always regarded Robert Edwards as like a grandfather to me. His work, along with Patrick Steptoe, has brought happiness and joy to millions of people all over the world by enabling them to have children.
I am glad that he lived long enough to be recognised with a Nobel Prize for his work and his legacy will live on with all the IVF work being carried out throughout the world.
The thoughts of myself and my sister Natalie, who was also born through IVF, are with his family at this sad time.
