Costa Rica Welcomes First IVF

Baby After 16-Year Ban

 

A baby girl named María José is the first baby born as the result of an In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) procedure after a 16-year ban on the technique in Costa Rica.

 

Channel 7 Telenoticias reported that the baby was born just before 1 p.m. on Wednesday at Hospital Cima, west of San José. Her parents are a couple from the province of Heredia who had the procedure done last June.

 

The couple, Jenny Garbanzo and José Barana, have been together since 2007, the same year they were informed that their only option to become parents would be through an IVF procedure.

 

Garbanzo’s was the first of a series of pregnancies that have resulted from IVF procedures following the approval of an executive decree to reinstate IVF here last year.
