A 41-year-old Chinese woman has given birth to a baby boy from an embryo frozen for 10 years after the birth of her elder son conceived in the same round of IVF.
The woman identified as Wang was unable to conceive for five years before seeking help from fertility specialists in 2009.
According to Daily Mail, a doctor cultivated ‘a batch of embryos’ using the same sperm and eggs when she sought medical help.
One of them was implanted into her straight away, and the rest was frozen.
TUKO.co.ke has learnt that the woman gave birth to her first baby boy in June 2010, at the Hubei Maternal and Child Healthcare Hospital in central China, while the second baby boy was born on Tuesday, June 16, at the same hospital.
A doctor from the hospital’s fertility centre, Zheng Jie, said:
“From a medical perspective, Lu Lu and Tong Tong are twin brothers.”
In yet other news in relation to babies, a mother-of-four who did not know she was pregnant gave birth to a healthy baby girl in a toilet.
Grace Meachin said the birth of her last born was during the period her husband was on the waiting list for a vasectomy.
