Ice, Ice Baby: New Zealand Gets into the IVF Act!


Early this May was only the second time an IVF baby was conceived through a frozen egg in New Zealand. He joins two other siblings. His parents couldn”t be prouder.

According to an article in, the first frozen egg baby was delivered in 2013, but the parents of that baby were hesitant to speak about it. The couple hadn”t planned on freezing the eggs and only did so due to complications during IVF.

The mom, or shall we say “mum” of this most recent Auckland baby chose freezing on purpose, however, and not as a by products of health complications. Her reasons for sharing the story was to offer hope for those who desperately want babies but think they are out of options.

“It”s very heartening to know it is possible. I would certainly recommend it, especially if you are single and you haven”t met “that” person yet, but want a family, definitely consider it. And do it sooner rather than later,” she reported.

In her case, after failed fertility treatments, she tried IVF. 11 eggs were collected, but she and her husband decided to fertilize only half the eggs and freeze the rest. Her reason for doing that was that she didn”t want to create more buy viagra online embryos than she would be able to keep. It would be too painful to decide between destroying them or giving them away.

As fate would have it, only two of the five eggs were fertilized. Both were implanted, but only one took. It only took one as far as this couple was concerned. They consider him to be their miracle baby.

“He has completed our family. We feel incredibly lucky,” the now 42-year-old mum said of her newborn son.

While it cost $20,000 for the two IVF cycles, plus extra fees for a private obstetrician, the couple feels it was worth every penny.

Stories like this one are making intended parents throughout the world feel that they don”t have to give up their dreams of children, and neither do you.
