Australian news figure, the world's first child to grow from a frozen embryo, born from a woman whose blocked fallopian tubes prevented her from conceiving normally. Since her birth, sperm banks and embryo banks have become widely available.
"The first time in-vitro fertilization pioneer Professor Alan Trounson saw Zoë Leyland, she was an embryo thawing out in a laboratory dish after being stored in liquid nitrogen at minus 196 degrees Celsius. Eight months and one week later, on 3/28/1984, Zoë made her real debut, as the world's first authenticated frozen-embryo baby, at Melbourne's Queen Victoria Hospital.
Zoë's mother, Loretto, 43, a kindergarten teacher had tried to conceive for eight years when she and her husband, David, 44, a technical services manager, turned to medical help from the world-renowned Monash IVF team.
Zoë was delivered by C-section. Two years later she had a brother, Xavier, conceived naturally. She is quite blasé about the clippings and phenomena of her birth.
