The first baby to be conceived through a controversial three-parent fertility technique has been born, using what's called the Spindle Nuclear Transfer.

The mother carries genes for a disorder that led to four miscarriages and the deaths of two children.

So an American doctor created embryos using the father's sperm, the mother's egg, and another egg from a donor; the goal for the technique, to switch out the DNA that could pass on the disease.

The baby was born in Mexico, since the technique has not been approved in the United States.
