Baby born from embryo one year younger than its mother

26 Year Old Woman Delivers Baby Girl Who Was Frozen Embryo 24 Years 20122017

A 26-year-old Tennessee woman has given birth to the longest-known frozen embryo to be born.

According to the Daily Mail, baby Emma Wren Gibson was conceived and fertilized in 1992.

This means Gibson carried an embryo that was conceived about 18 months after she herself was born, a press release stated.

Her father Benjamin said: "Emma is such a sweet miracle". "I said, 'you know, I'm just and her, we could've been best friends", she said.

Dr Jeffrey Keenan, the NEDC's medical director who performed the transfer, said: "The NEDC has been privileged to work with the Gibsons to help them realize their dreams of becoming parents".

The NEDC handles all aspects of medical, legal and social aspects of embryo-donation and even offers both donors and recipients the option of communication, similar to open-adoption relationships. It's believed to be the longest-frozen embryo to ever result in a birth.

"If this embryo had been born when it was suppose to we could have been best friends - that's been the going joke, I mean it's just so insane", she said. The previous record was held by a child in Virginia, who was born from a 20-year-old embryo, CNN reported.

"People say, 'oh it's science, ' but no I think it's a gift from the Lord". The couple assumed they would adopt, but when they learned about a process called embryo adoption, which uses leftover embryos from in vitro fertilization (IVF), they couldn't get the idea out of their heads. But they were content with fostering kids until they felt ready to adopt.

"I think it is probably fair to say if it is not the oldest, it would be among the oldest", said Dr. David Adamson, CEO of Arc Fertility in San Jose, California.

The first American baby born from a frozen embryo was in 1986 in Los Angeles.

"I see miracles happen everyday", Sommerfelt said. Apparently, it was just before the procedure that the doctors thought to inform her future parents that the embryo was almost as old as her mother.

However, 25 years in waiting don't appear to have affected Emma, who was born in robust health, weighing 6lb 8oz.

Regardless of whether it set a world record, Emma's birth shows how far reproductive medicine has come in a few short decades. "We are big advocates of embryo donation and embryo adoption".
