USA Today: Same sex couple take turns carrying fetus in vitro

DALLAS — Two Texas mothers each carried their “miracle baby” because of a medical advance that allowed them to do what they thought was otherwise impossible, USA Today reported.

Ashleigh Coulter, 28, and Bliss Coutler, 36, met six years ago and later were married. The couple who desired a baby knew that welcoming their own biological child would require a sperm donor, and some creativity.

The sperm and eggs were placed in Bliss’ body for five days. Then the embryos were removed, frozen, and reinserted into Ashleigh’s uterus where they were carried until the baby boy was delivered nine months later.
