“Infertility is a common and distressing problem, which often creates pressure in an otherwise stable and happy relationship. Peculiar to us in sub-Saharan Africa is the large premium our culture places on immediate procreation and child-bearing"

Also speaking at the launch was the Chief Medical Director of Medical Art Centre, Lagos, Prof. Oladapo Ashiru, who urged couples to embrace the assisted reproductive services as an option to treating fertility challenges.

In his words,

“It is about giving nature a helping hand to help couples conceive. With continuous research and practice, I am optimistic that fertility challenges will be brought to the barest minimum level in Nigeria.”
