After the trauma of two miscarriages, an ectopic pregnancy and 13 failed IVF attempts, a UK mom finally has her miracle baby after doctors devised a way of counting the chromosomes in eggs, allowing them to pick only the best for fertility treatment.
The baby, identified only as Oliver, has become the first in the world to be born using an IVF technique that is said to more than double the chances of pregnancy.
In the case of Oliver, of eight eggs tested from the mother only two were found to be chromosomally normal. One of these produced the embryo that became Oliver.
