These lesbian moms both carried the same baby in groundbreaking pregnancy

The couple have two additional frozen embryos from Bliss that they could use the same way unless Ashleigh wants to use her eggs next time, because only Bliss' genes transferred to Stetson.

It is truly mind-boggling to consider the extent to which the science and technology sectors have dedicated themselves to making LGBT fantasies a reality, from transgender people demanding free wombs to reproductive technologies ensuring that same-sex couples can create designer babies biologically connected to both of them.

The married women, Ashleigh and Bliss Coulter, were each able to carry the developing embryo (and eventually, for one woman, the fetus) thanks to a relatively new fertilization technique, local news station WFAA 8 ABC reported October 25.

Texas lesbian couple carries same baby boy using Effortless Reciprocal IVF

In what USA Today is calling a potential "fertility world first", two Texas women carried the same child through a cutting edge process called reciprocal effortless In Vitro Fertilization using INVOcell. "And Kevin said: 'I think you're right".

"We anxious that he wouldn't connect to me because he has (Bliss') DNA", Ashleigh told the New York Post.

Dr Kathy explained: '(Bliss) got the embryo off to an early start.

The pair used to train alongside each other, under the watchful eye of trainer Peter Fury, Hughie's dad. Youth, more hunger and ability is what wins me the fight.

"We gave it a try and it was very, very successful", Bliss said. "Effortless Reciprocal IVF is a great opportunity for same-sex couples".

Because embryos don't have livers, kidneys or lungs, traditionally, electromechanical devices like incubators are used in labs to remove toxins and try to maintain a supportive environment for the embryo. 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. Then, the device was placed into Bliss' body for five days to start developing the embryo.

Ashleigh called Stetson 'our miracle baby, ' with Bliss branding him 'perfect...our little cowboy'.

Humans have wiped out 60 per cent of animals since 1970
The WWF attributed the global drop in animal populations to habitat loss, due to agriculture and over-exploitation of species.

The couple says that even though Stetson, now nearly 5 months old, only has Bliss' DNA, he's got a bit of both of them in his personality: "He's loud, just like me", Ashleigh says with a laugh. This was accomplished by a procedure called "Effortless Reciprocal In Vitro Fertilization" or Effortless Reciprocal IVF. "She got to be a part of it, and I got to be a part of it". Doody had the idea to involve both mothers, which instantly appealed to the Coulters.

Typically, the procedure can cost $30,000, but the procedure for the Coulters worked out to be less than half that.

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

Even though the Coulters were the Doody's first same sex couple to go through Effortless IVF, they've performed the process for around 200 heterosexual couples.
