KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ University of Kansas Hospital officials say a baby girl born two weeks ago is a pioneer in Kansas.

They say the baby, Morgan Belle Dickson, is the first child born in the state using a frozen egg.

Her parents are Jessica and Ryan Dickson of Kansas City.

Dr. Samuel Kim heads the hospital's Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Clinic. He froze Dickson's eggs in February 2011 while the couple decided how to start a family after having trouble conceiving a child.

The Kansas City Star reports that two fertilized eggs were implanted in August. Dickson found out she was pregnant in November.

Kim says the process has been available for decades but before now was used in the U.S. mostly on the East and West coasts.
