World first – baby carried by two mothers
In a world first, a baby has been ‘carried’ by two mothers.
The process which is similar to IVF, involves fertilising eggs with sperm in a lab, incubating them, and transferring the resulting embryos into the uterus. Through this, an American same-sex couple has been able to share the experience of carrying their baby.
“… I think any contribution is awesome.” says Dr Joe.
Not something that is currently available in Australia, however, Dr Joseph Sgroi says “I think it’s technology that we’d no doubt investigates for the future,”
