"Chromosomal abnormality plays a major part in the failure to establish a pregnancy," said Professor Simon Fishel, Managing Director of CARE Fertility Group "Full chromosome analysis may double the chance of success in couples who have a poor chance of conceiving or a history of failed treatments and miscarriage; and maximise the chance of pregnancy in all couples. :

the parents of Oilver, who are yet to be named, had failed to conceive on 13 previous occasions using IVF.
