First Ever Egg Bank-Baby at Kindergarten
First Ever Egg Bank-Baby at Kindergarten – Just as Lovable and Vivacious as any Child Conceived Naturally
A half decade ago, a baby was produced by state of the art infertility technology from the inventory of The World-Egg Bank of frozen eggs. At the time, the company was the first egg bank located in the United States and are specialists in frozen eggs shipping around the world.
Avery-Lee Kennedy in Kentucky, now 5 years-old, said that she just loves kindergarten and one day would like to be a teacher.
Avery Kennedy came into the world on the eve of New Year in 2005, after the first in-vitro successful procedure using the frozen eggs. Well-known fertility specialists Dr. Jeffrey Boldt and Dr. James Akin performed this successful procedure. The specialists are also the directors who founded The World-Egg Bank located in Arizona.
47 year-old Wendy Kennedy, Avery’s mother, and a cancer nurse at the University-of Kentucky, was the first successful patient to become impregnated using frozen donated eggs from The World-Egg Bank.
Avery, her beautiful blue eyes and blonde hair, is of Irish and German decent, which is a very similar background to mommy and daddy. Avery’s parents say that the little one loves ballet, singing in the choir and soccer.
The Kennedy’s said that Avery is a true blessing, although many would consider her some kind of medical miracle. They boasted that Avery is their little girl and that was just awesome!
Frozen eggs are an option for patients. Advanced technology is used in the freezing process and it is nothing like freezing embryos or sperm. Freezing embryos and sperm has always been common and it is a routine treatment used in fertility. Women who have infertile eggs now have the opportunity to fall pregnant using the embryo that is created from the donor eggs.
Research made replacing a female’s infertile eggs with donor eggs simple, the same as it is simple to replace a male’s infertile sperm with donor sperm. The World-Egg Bank is confident with its products, because the bank will provide a guarantee if less than 60 percent of donor eggs bought do not make it through the melting process. The rate of pregnancy is equivalent to the donor eggs.
Diana Thomas, CEO and President of The World-Egg Bank, said that the transferal process of donor eggs is not complicated. She added that the process is less costly, geographical barriers do not exist, it is more predictable and when it is it is bought from The World-Egg Bank, a guarantee is included.
The Kennedy’s were lucky first time around
Wendy Kennedy said that she knows of people who had the in-vitro performed and kept it a secret. She went on saying that the procedure is nothing to be embarrassed about. Wendy wants couples that are unable to fall pregnant to understand that the technology to make it possible is available, and five years later, technology has advanced.
The cost of a procedure ranges from $15,000 to $20,000. Traditional egg donations can cost anywhere from $25,000 to $30,000 and there are still unpredictable expenses included going the traditional way. The technological advancements and the success of freezing eggs have made using fresh eggs less stressful and much more convenient for females and couples.
