First ‘frozen egg’ baby | 1997

While doctors were already storing sperm, and embryos, at very low temperature, there were concerns about doing the same with eggs.

Eventually however, the technique of freezing and thawing proved safe in animals and it was transferred to humans.

The first baby conceived this way was born in the US, and the first in the UK in 2001.

The technique offered young women whose fertility was threatened by illness to store their eggs until a time when they wished to have children.
