Uganda’s fashion guru Sylvia Owori seems to be looking for attention since she has been off the social scene for a while.
While at a vigil of Juliana’s son in Lungujja last week, Owori hurled shocking and insulting words to city socialite, model and Nalongo Judith Heard.
Owori said that white men are weak in bed and that is the reason to why Judith Heard settled for test tube babies.
These words never went well with Judith Heard and blows were almost traded but mourners intervened and cooled down the situation.
It still remains unclear to what Owori meant by test tube babies but in simple understanding Test tube babies are the babies that are obtained via In vitro fertilization.
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a process by which an egg is fertilised by sperm outside the body: in vitro.
IVF is a major treatment for infertility when other methods of assisted reproductive technology have failed.
The process involves monitoring and stimulating a woman’s ovulatory process, removing ovum or ova (egg or eggs) from the woman’s ovaries and letting sperm fertilise them in a fluid medium in a laboratory.
The fertilised egg (zygote) is cultured for 2–6 days in a growth medium and is then transferred to the mother’s uterus with the intention of establishing a successful pregnancy.
The first successful birth of a “test tube baby”, Louise Brown, occurred in 1978.
Louise Brown was born as a result of natural cycle IVF where no stimulation was made.
Robert G. Edwards, the physiologist who developed the treatment, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2010.
Red Pepper online has learnt that Judith heard underwent the same procedure in Florida USA some years ago and it’s through this that she gave birth to twins.
Judith Heard is married to Dr. Alex Heard and they have three children.
