The longest-frozen Embryo to be born

Baby Emma conceived in 1992, now holds the record for the longest-frozen embryo to be born.

The embryo that would after 24 years result in the baby, born to a 26-year-old mother in Tennessee, was conceived and cryogenically frozen in 1992.



It’s now considered the oldest known frozen embryo to result in a successful birth.

That means that those with cancer, who after chemotherapy treatments anticipate losing fertility, could freeze a healthy embryo.
