The child was born in the Iranian city of Isfahan from an embryo that doctors and scientists froze in 2003.
This is the first record in preserving a fertilized embryo, which has retained the ability to develop into a healthy child.
According to the Iranian news agency IRNA, on Saturday the child was born in the Iranian city of Isfahan from the embryo frozen 14 years ago. Before that, scientists and doctors have never been successful in using such an old embryo for IVF.
The previous record was held in an 11-year-old embryo contained in a special freezer.
“So far, no one has been able to give birth to a healthy baby from the fetus that has been frozen for so many years,” said Dr. Sayed Asadollah Kalantari, one of the leaders of the Isfahan Infertility Treatment Center.
Dr. Kalantari also added that currently there are more than 100,000 frozen embryos in the center.
The 42-year-old mother of the child feels well. She used to fight cancer of the lymphatic system.
This method of IVF is considered the most successful method of maintaining fertility in cases where a woman had cancer or had radiation or chemotherapy.
In such cases, before starting chemotherapy and radiation therapy, the eggs are taken from the woman and stored, leaving her the opportunity to eventually have a baby if she beats cancer.
According to IRNA, a bill was passed a few weeks ago in Iran, allowing fathers of newborns to take maternity leave for childcare. This is one of the many incentives that the Iranian government uses to raise the birth rate in the country.
In addition, the country covers all medical expenses for infertility treatment and uses material incentives for young mothers.
