Dr Subhas Mukherjee, an Indian scientist from Kolkata announced the birth of Kanupriya alias Durga following an IVF procedure using cryopreserved embryo.
In IVF treatment, the eggs of the female and the sperm of the male are mixed under certain controlled conditions in the laboratory.
When the embryo is formed from the combination, it is then placed back into the woman’s uterus thereby assisting in the conception of an embryo.
In this way, the woman who has difficulty doing it naturally becomes pregnant and gives birth to a child.
