A recent report by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, has revealed the elevated risk of premature births, congenital abnormalities and low birth weight among children born through  IVF.

The research showed that congenital anomalies and heart defects happened to be more common amongst IVF babies  

 "IVF pregnancies carry an increased risk of poor birth outcomes and complications. Nevertheless the majority of the children born following IVF will have a good outcome just like any other children," said Prof Jenny Kurinczuk, director of the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit at the University of Oxford.
