Baby Born Through Frozen Donor Egg
Wendy and Jared Kennedy are the parents of the first baby born through the use of a frozen donor egg. This had been purchased from a commercial egg bank, Cryo Eggs International (CEI), which is a first of its sort in the world. Each of the seven eggs were purchased for US$ 2,500 by the couple.

The sperm of Jared was used to fertilize three eggs which were implanted in Wendy. There is only a 30% possibility of pregnancy while using frozen donor eggs, compared to 50% in the case of fresh donor eggs. The latter involves a waiting period and is also more expensive.

Wendy who is 41 years old delivered the child without any complications through a caesarean operation.
