Children born from in vitro fertilisation (IVF) could be at an increased risk of developing neurological problems, especially cerebral palsy.

These risks are largely due to the high frequency of twin pregnancies, low birthweight, and prematurity among babies born after IVF," declares Dr Bo Strömberg and colleagues at the Department of Paediatric Neurology, Uppsala University Children's Hospital, Uppsala, Sweden.

"To limit these risks, we recommend that only one embryo should be transferred during IVF," the clinicians add.
