Fertility study: Frozen embryos yield healthier babies than fresh ones

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Sunday, July 20, 2008 | 0 comments

19 July, 2008 - This month Danish scientists reported results from a 10-year study that showed children born from previously frozen embryos that had been replaced in the womb had higher birth weight than those born when fresh embryos were used.

The mothers had longer pregnancies, and the children did not show increased risk for birth defects, according to Dr. Anja Pinborg of the Copenhagen University Hospital Rigshospitalet who presented the results at the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology annual conference in Barcelona July 8.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
