Baby Born from 16-Year-Old Frozen Embryo
A healthy baby boy has been born from an embryo frozen 16 years ago, a hospital in south China announced on Monday. A 46-year-old woman gave birth to a son at the First Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yatsen University in Guangdong Province in early February, Xinhua news agency reported. Her other first son, already 16 years old, was from the same batch of embryos frozen in 2000. “I’m just really ecstatic to have another child,” said the woman. She gave birth to her first child through IVF in 2000, when the hospital froze her 18 other embryos. Last year, the mother came to the hospital asking to get pregnant again, after China lifted the one-child policy.
