In the past it was common belief that IVF treatments put the babies and the mother at increased risk of birth problems.

These problems could consist of an increased risk for disease, miscarriage, etc.

Dr. Norbert Gleicher from the Center for Human Reproduction in New York has shot down these risks though, stating that having twins as a result of IVF treatment may actually be safer than a natural single pregnancy.

He spoke at the annual meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology in Barcelona, Spain, and stated that “In my opinion patients are being misled and put to unnecessary expense.”
