Frozen IVF babies 'are healthier'


IVF babies born from frozen embryos are heavier and result in longer pregnancies than those born from fresh embryos, research suggests.

The research suggests frozen embryo transfer in IVF may lead to healthier babies, owing to a good birth weight and ability for the foetus to last the course of pregnancy without being premature.

Presented at the British Fertility Society Annual Meeting in Leeds yesterday, the study involved measuring the weight and length of gestation for 384 babies born after fresh embryo transfer and 108 born after frozen embryo transfer.
