This chapter introduces the basic history of IVF and fertility treatment and
sets the scene for the detailed information presented later in this book. It provides an
initial overview of IVF technology from the first birth in 1978 to today and the
alternatives to fertility treatment such as adoption. It also considers the growing
population of Earth and the possible stagnation of fertility services.
