The world's first In Vitro fertilization baby, born in the U.K., greeted America's first IVF baby. They are 38-year-old Louise Brown and 35-year-old Elizabeth Carr, respectively.

They met at the Midwest Reproductive Symposium International at the Drake Hotel.

Prior to this event, the two had talked over Skype.
