Texas lesbian couple carries same baby boy using Effortless Reciprocal IVF

But we were also excited, we left the office and we were laughing - that means both of us are going to be carrying the baby.

"We were just talking one night at home and I said, 'You know, I think we could use this for a same-sex couple, '" Kathy told the news outlet.

But instead of placing the eggs and sperm into an incubator, they were placed inside the INVOcell device immediately after the eggs were retrieved.

"She was so confident when she was saying that they can do it", Ashleigh said.

"We anxious that he wouldn't connect to me because he has [Bliss'] DNA", Ashleigh says.

Ashleigh was given hormones to prepare her body for the next step - transferring the embryos to her body - and she became pregnant on the first try.

"Bliss went through the stimulation of her ovaries and the egg harvest", Kathy said. That's why it ended up costing them nearly 50% less than what it takes for a traditional IVF. Here's how: Effortless Reciprocal IVF.

This process allowed Bliss to incubate her own embryo. Then, the device was placed into Bliss' body for five days to start developing the embryo. An incubator provides a temperate environment and moves gasses and substances, like toxins, away from the embryos. Bliss and Ashleigh are busy with motherhood.

"This represents the first time that two women have both physically carried their child together", fertility specialist Dr. Kathy Doody of The Center for Assisted Reproduction, who works with husband Dr. Kevin Doody, told CBS News. "It's more accessible, it's more affordable and it's truly more natural".

The complicated part was to remove the embryo, place it in Ashleigh's uterus and wait for 10 days to make sure the transition has worked. This was accomplished by a procedure called "Effortless Reciprocal In Vitro Fertilization" or Effortless Reciprocal IVF. She said, Image source " It was so exciting knowing that I was growing my own biological child inside of me".

Doody said the technique "opens up new avenues" for same-sex couples.

The couple, who live in Bedford, Texas, years, got pregnant at the first attempt, and gave birth to a baby boy called Stetson five months ago. Then, they were placed in an INVOcell, which was then placed in Bliss' cervix for five days while the eggs incubated and an embryo formed.

Ashleigh lauded the doctors for coming up with a concept that involves both people in the relationship.

The INVOcell technique used by the Coulters is around half the price of traditional IVF, with the Coulters spending $8,000.

Since Stetson's birth, another same-sex couple in Texas chose reciprocal effortless IVF at CARE Fertility and delivered a baby girl in September.
