Alabama Fertility Welcomes the First INVOcell Baby In the State of Alabama

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. and MEDFORD, Mass., Oct. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Alabama Fertility, a leading infertility practice in Birmingham, Alabama, today announced the birth of the clinic's first newborn utilizing INVOcell, the in-vivo fertilization technology from INVO Bioscience (IVOB). This marks the first baby born from this technique in the state of Alabama.

INVO Bioscience (IVOB) is a medical device company, headquartered in Medford, Massachusetts, focused on creating simplified, lower cost treatment options for patients diagnosed with infertility. The company's lead product, the INVOcell, is a novel medical device used in infertility treatment that enables egg fertilization and early embryo development in the woman's vaginal cavity.

INVOcell has the ability to transform the way in which doctors assist infertile patients to become pregnant in a simpler, more natural and cost-effective manner. INVOcell is a patented medical device used in the treatment of infertility that enables egg fertilization and early embryo development to take place in the woman's body, in vivo. The simplistic INVOcell procedure can be easily performed in an appropriately trained infertility specialist's office without the need for expensive overhead.

Beth Malizia, MD, a specialist in infertility and reproductive surgery at Alabama Fertility and the first physician trained in the state of Alabama in the INVOcell technique, said, "We are thrilled to announce the birth of the state of Alabama's first INVOcell baby. Peter was born on September 27, 2018. He is healthy, with no medical complications at the time of birth. He and his mother are thriving. We are blessed to have had a hand in this joyous occasion for this sweet family and we look forward to many others in the years to come. Alabama Fertility is dedicated to providing a broad scope of services and solutions to help those that desire to achieve pregnancy. INVOCell is a unique, and cost effective, alternative that may produce a pregnancy where other treatment options have failed. We are thrilled to welcome Peter to the world and for his lovely family as a result of the INVOcell procedure." 

Katie Karloff, chief executive officer of INVO Bioscience, commented, "This is a joyous occasion for the family, Alabama Fertility and all of us at INVO Bioscience. We are proud that our technology was the enabling force to make this birth possible. Our expectation is that the simplicity, the efficacy and the cost efficiency of the INVOcell process will help many more couples in the years to come to build the families that they so fervently desire."
