In vitro-fertilization (IVF) is part of assisted reproductive technologies (ART) which has made it possible over the last 20 years for many women to have a family, which in the past would have been impossible.

These new medical breakthroughs are not without risks and possible complications to the pregnancy and with the child or children born as a result of IVF or ART.

Many medical studies have now been published comparing normally conceived pregnancies and those resulting from IVF.

Pregnancies conceived through IVF often result in a multiple gestation of twins or triplets. These pregnancies have a higher risk for:

1. Pre term birth and complications resulting from prematurity.

2. Small or growth restricted babies.

3. Increased risk for birth defects.

4. Increased risk to the mother for diabetes and preeclampsia.

Single pregnancies from IVF have a much higher risk for pregnancy complications when compared to naturally conceived single pregnancies. These include:

IVF compared to Natural Pregnancy

1. Pregnancy loss - 2x higher

2. Pre term delivery - 2x higher

3. Low birth weight - 2x higher

4. Very low birth weight - 2x higher

5. Diabetes in mom - 2-3x higher

6. Preeclampsia in mother - 2x higher

7. Birth defects - 3x higher

8. Neonatal ICU admissions - 3x higher

The women who are pregnant through IVF are high-risk mothers and need close follow-up throughout their pregnancy.
