St. Ives Celebrates 3000 IVF Births

In line with its commitment to deliver total healthcare to its patrons and patients and etched a permanent smile on the faces of families, St. Ives Hospital recently celebrated a landmark three thousand (3000) in vitro fertilization, IVF births. The hospital, which is fast becoming synonymous with IVF success, has continued to record ground breaking acclaim with its patients in its assisted reproductive technology initiative.

Many Nigerians who hitherto believed that their dreams of becoming parents via the IVF route can only be realized abroad are now the ones recommending the hospital to others in the same situation as themselves. The 3000 births success represents one of the highest rates in the medical industry in Nigeria.

St. Ives hospital started out in 1996, with the family as the area of focus, dedicating its service to women, children and the family at large. Overtime, in 2007, it delved into fertility as a core area of competence and has since distinguished itself as the hospital of choice for those who are seeking the fruit of the womb. Among its outstanding feats was the delivery of a set of twins by a 68-year-old lady, which went on to be recorded as the oldest IVF mother in Africa.

The hospital, whose team is led by Dr. Babatunde Okewale, the founder and Chief Medical Director has continued to grow in leaps and bounds with presence at Ikeja, Ikoyi, Akowonjo, all in Lagos State and Abeokuta in Ogun State. The FESTAC branch of the hospital is planned for opening in the third quarter of 2024. One of the outstanding features of the hospital is the fact that there is a medical consultant on seat at each of its hospital branches.
