Photos: Baby born using EEVA IVF technology

IN photos: the as yet unnamed baby born to Ruth Carter and partner John Traverse from Warrington, Cheshire, who are the first in the world to give birth to a baby using EEVA IVF technology. The baby girl weighing 5lb 15oz was born today at the Liverpool Women’s Hospital.

EEVA is one of the most recent and ground-breaking advances in reproductive technology and uses time-lapse imaging systems, allowing embryologists to capture huge amounts of information, previously unattainable, about the way in which early embryos develop.
