Largest Study of Babies Born after Infertility Treatment Shows Significant Improvements in Health over Past 20 Years

January 21, 2015

(Science Daily) – The last two decades has seen a steady improvement in the health outcomes of children born after assisted reproduction (ART), with fewer babies being born preterm, with low birth weight, stillborn or dying within the first year of life. These findings come from the largest study to date to investigate the health of ART babies over time; data from more than 92,000 children in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden were analysed for the study, which is published online in Human Reproduction, one of the world’s leading reproductive medicine journals.
