Daily Graphic – Ghana adopts ‘walking egg’ technology to produce baby.
Ghana has made history as the second country in the world to use ‘The Walking Egg’ (TWE) technology to produce a baby.
The feat was achieved on Monday after a couple who had been childless for eight years had a healthy baby boy on the third attempt with the technology at the Pentecost Hospital at Madina, near Accra.
It was a moment of joy and glory for the couple, their families and friends after the birth of the baby, who weighed 3.3 kilogrammes.
The Walking Egg
The TWE technology is a form of in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) method that allows the sperm of a man and the egg of a woman to fertilise outside the body for about two to five days.
