      The first pregnancy after vitrification of a human blastocyst (day 5 of embryo culture) was reported by Yokota et al. in 2000. Since then more attention has been given to the technique of vitrification and its safe application in ART. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of a clinical pregnancy resulting in a live birth from the transfer of a vitrified/ warmed human blastocyst in the Republic of Ireland.
