A resident of the English village of Nuntorp, North Yorkshire, UK, gave birth to a child thanks to online sperm and a fertilization kit from eBay. This is reported by The Mirror.
Stephenie Taylor, 33, already had a five-month-old son, Frankie, from a former partner. The woman wanted to conceive another child, but found that the services of private reproductive medicine clinics are expensive.
At some point, she abandoned the plans, but then a friend advised the Englishwoman a mobile application through which sperm can be ordered. The father of the unborn child in it can be selected using a mechanism similar to Tinder. Taylor wanted to find a family-oriented man who did not suffer from serious medical conditions. Ideally, the potential father should have been similar in appearance to her. She found a pair in a day.
Taylor and the future father of her child corresponded for three weeks, after which he brought his sperm to her house. “He was sweet and friendly. We drank a cup of tea and talked about the weather, ”the woman said.
She then bought a fertilization kit on eBay and conceived a baby on her first attempt. The woman had a daughter, whom she named Eden. Taylor calls the girl an “online baby.”
“If it were not for the Internet, I would not have been able to get everything I need to conceive, and I would not have had a child. But I am happy that I have become a mother again, and I am proud of how exactly she was born, ”she stressed.
Taylor wrote a message to the donor about the birth of her daughter. She stated that if her daughter wants to see the person who contributed to her birth when she grows up, it will not be a problem. The donor, who chose to remain anonymous, said: “She is an amazing person and I will be happy to help her again if she wants more children in the future.”
Earlier it was reported that in the American city of Los Angeles, California, two women living with each other became pregnant from the same man and gave birth to children three days apart. They decided to use home fertilization kits and found a sperm donor online.
