Private Equity fund invests in Fertility clinics

Since the first In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) baby, Louise Brown, was born in 1978 following pioneering work by Nobel-prize winning Prof. Edwards in Cambridge, fertility treatment has grown significantly as a medical procedure and there is now a thriving private practice industry sector.
