London: A 42-year-old U.K. woman has become the first in the world to give birth to a baby conceived using a pioneering IVF time-lapse photography technique to pick the best embryo.

The child was conceived using a technique which monitors the growth of the embryo, to select the one which is most likely to result in a successful pregnancy.

Ruth Carter, a clinical psychologist, gave birth to the girl at Liverpool Women's Hospital.

The girl is the first in the world to have been conceived using a technique called Eeva - Early Embryo Viability Assessment - which uses timelapse technology to take thousands of pictures of the developing embryo and pinpoint the most viable, 'The Telegraph' reported.

By capturing images at one-minute intervals, scientists can see for the first time how the embryo is growing and predict which will lead to successful pregnancies.

In recent years, scientists have been using imaging techniques in an attempt to improve IVF success rates, with researchers pioneering different monitoring methods to identify which of the embryos will be successful.

Carter said she and her husband had been trying for a kid for several years, but she had suffered several miscarriages.

The couple's daughter was born by Caesarean section after the clinic used the Eeva technique to identify the most promising embryos.

"As a unit, we have never been prouder to be at the forefront of such pioneering technology. By investing into research and technology, we have been able to debut Eeva in Europe and lead the way in time-lapse imaging technology," Professor Charles Kingsland, clinical director at The Hewitt Fertility Centre, said.
