Twins Are Born, Thanks to a Mix of Soya and Egg Yolk
After three miscarriages and failed IVF treatments, Stacy and James Bodle feared they might never have a family of their own. But they say an experimental fertility treatment using egg yolks and soya oil cured the condition causing the miscarriages and they are now celebrating the arrival of twins Libby and Harry. The treatment involved a combination of natural fats made up from egg yolks and soya oil. Doctors believe this intralipid liquid, a calorie-rich potion normally used in tube-feeding sick patients, could help more women achieve their dream of motherhood.
