Are IVF kids different?

Updated 04.08.2022

Babies who are conceived through IVF do not differ from those babies who are conceived naturally.

Congenital disease risk increases with female age, so for older women we recommend specific genetic testing for early diagnosis of potential foetal abnormalities.

The world’s first baby who was conceived through IVF is Louise Brown. She was born in 1978 in Great Britain, and since then more than 5 million such children have been born.
