Same-sex couple both carried baby in medical first

Miracle Baby Birth

But instead of placing the eggs and sperm into an incubator, they were placed inside the INVOcell device immediately after the eggs were retrieved.

Ashleigh was given hormones to prepare her body for the next step - transferring the embryos to her body - and she became pregnant on the first try.

It is truly mind-boggling to consider the extent to which the science and technology sectors have dedicated themselves to making LGBT fantasies a reality, from transgender people demanding free wombs to reproductive technologies ensuring that same-sex couples can create designer babies biologically connected to both of them. Bliss, 37, donated the egg and kick-started the process, by having the device placed inside her body for five days, ABC News reported, before Ashleigh carried it for nearly nine months after that.

Ashleigh and Bliss started researching to find a way for both of them to participate in the bringing a child into the world.

Ashleigh and Bliss Coulter of North Texas had their son Stetson through what's called effortless IVF, using Bliss' eggs and a donor's sperm.

"I think many have been excited about the thought but Kevin is correct, doctors in general, we don't like change so I think that their ability to share their story is phenomenal", Kathy said.

Donald Trump pushes for end to birthright citizenship
Birthright citizenship is not one of them, according to South Texas College of Law Houston professor Josh Blackman. It's not practical, it's inhumane but it could be. "But the 14th amendment of the constitution is very clear".

"We anxious that he wouldn't connect to me because he has (Bliss') DNA", Ashleigh told the New York Post. That's why it ended up costing them nearly 50% less than what it takes for a traditional IVF. An incubator provides a temperate environment and moves gasses and substances, like toxins, away from the embryos.

Doody said it works because "the woman has kidneys, a liver, and lungs, which allow the body acts as a natural incubator".

The embryo was then removed and placed in Ashleigh's uterus. Ashleigh was pregnant after the first try. "So that made it really special for the both of us - that we were both involved". Then, they were placed in an INVOcell, which was then placed in Bliss' cervix for five days while the eggs incubated and an embryo formed.

Surprisingly, the process ended up working out cheaper than the average IVF pregnancy, because the embryo was incubated in Bliss rather than in a lab. Ashleigh and Bliss Coulter, however, weren't satisfied with this option.

The couple refer to 5-month-old Stetson as their miracle baby. "I started reaching out to fertility doctors, saying, 'This is what I had in mind, ' and got a lot of no".

Since Stetson's birth, another same-sex couple in Texas chose reciprocal effortless IVF at CARE Fertility and delivered a baby girl in September.
