Company in Australia Turning IVF Embryos Into Jewelry

Via Billy

A company in Australia that has been making jewelry and various mementos for parents using actual raw materials from development—think breast milk, hair, the placenta and cord stump—has taken things a step further, and critics are appalled. Baby Bee Hummingbirds, started by midwife Amy McGlade in 2014, was just profiled by parenting blog Kidspot, which notes that the company has now added embryos to the mix. "My embryos were my babies—frozen in time," one mother of a 4-year-old and 21-month-old twins says of her difficult IVF journey. "When we completed our family, it wasn't in my heart to destroy [the extra embryos]. Now they are forever with me in a beautiful keepsake." She says she carries her seven embryos in a heart-shaped pendant so that they will forever be close to her heart.
