Couple Welcomes Baby Girl From 24-Year-Old Frozen Embryo

A baby has been born from an embryo that was frozen for 24 years. Emma Gibson was born weighing 6 pounds 8 ounces and measuring 20 inches long on November 25. According to the local east Tennessee news station WBIR, the embryo was donated, then frozen on October 14, 1992 and thawed by NEDC lab director Carol Sommerfelt on March 13, 2017. The NEDC said Emma's mother, Tina Gibson, became pregnant as a result of a frozen embryo transfer, or FET, conducted by Dr. Jeffrey Keenan. According to reports, this might be the longest recorded gap between conception and birth since the origination of IVF. The L.O.'s mother, Tina Gibson, who has cystic fibrosis, and her husband Benjamin turned to the faith-based National Embryo Donation Center (NEDC) after facing fertility issues.  The timeline also means Tina was just one and a half when her daughter was conceived. "This embryo and I could have been best friends," Gibson, 26, told CNN. "I just wanted a baby. I don't care if it's a world record or not." Before Emma, the oldest known frozen embryo that came to successful birth was 20 years old. Tina expressed her gratitude when speaking with WBIR. "People say, 'oh it's science,' but no I think it's a gift from the Lord. It's a gift from the Lord, for sure," she said. "I just couldn't believe it that I was carrying a baby. It was just something we didn't think would be possible to have that right in front of me and to make it tangible this year. It’s just amazing. Benjamin agreed, noting, "Emma is such a sweet miracle. I think she looks pretty perfect to have been frozen all those years ago.” Congrats to the happy couple and their beautiful baby girl!
