Since its founding in 2004, New Hope Fertility has always strived to bring safer and more effective IVF practices to the forefront of fertility care.
A leading advocate of Single Embryo Transfers (eSET), our protocols support a less is more philosophy. When it comes to your fertility care, we believe in less danger and more safety for the mother and child. This means transferring less embryos during your IVF treatment to ensure we can fulfill this peace of mind. A recent study published in the March edition of Fertility and Sterility supports the safety and efficacy of eSET.
In the study, the health of two singletons from the same mother (eSET) and the health of IVF twins and their mother (double embryo transfer) were the primary focus.
The findings? The health conditions of the mother and child following eSET treatments were much more favorable than that of IVF twins:
The neonatal and maternal outcomes were dramatically better for women undergoing two IVF singleton pregnancies compared with one IVF twin pregnancy after double-embryo transfers.
Not only were IVF twins born “very” pre-term with significantly lower birth weights, but were reported as having more serious complications, including respiratory issues and jaundice (a yellow complexion associated with too much bilirubin in the blood that can lead to birth defects). Mothers who elected for double-embryo transfers were more likely to experience pre-eclampsia and go into labor early, too.
Here’s to spreading safer and more effective practices!
