OCTOBER 13, 2014 – JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA – Dr. Samuel E. Brown, renowned fertility  and in vitro fertilization specialist, has assisted a South Georgia woman to achieve a world’s first. The woman conceived through IVF with frozen embryos by using her own egg frozen at the age of 41 and then transferred back to the patient later that year as an embryo, subsequently resulting in a live birth. This is the first known documented pregnancy in the world resulting in a live birth from the use of a frozen egg in a woman 41 or older.

“The steps we take to ensure that we are freezing an egg for successful use in the future really made a difference in this case. Our overall pregnancy rates and the cutting edge technology that we use are both very significant and exciting factors in our current success,” said Dr. Brown. “An alternative option for a woman in her forties would be to consider the use of our egg donor program in Jacksonville, Florida. Through this program, we are consistently seeing 80-95 percent pregnancy rates in our egg donation recipient patients each month.”
