A baby from a frozen embryo was born in Bangladesh's capital Dhaka on Friday, the first one in the country, private news agency bdnews24.com reported.

Opshora, the baby girl, was born by caesarean at Modern Hospital in the city in the afternoon, after being in the mother's womb for 37 weeks.

"Opshora is doing well. At birth, her weight was 3.2 kilograms," Dr Rashida Begum, who led the caesarean operation, said at a press conference here on Friday.

The assistant professor of gynecology and obstetrics department of Dhaka Medical College Hospital said the baby's parents have been married for five years and decided to take a baby through test tube last year. But the first attempt failed.

The first frozen embryo baby was born in Australia in 1984 while in Asia the first such baby was born in Singapore in 1987.
