Fertility treatments could link to cerebral palsy

Posted:

DENMARK (KWWL) -- A study links some fertility treatments with a slightly increased risk for cerebral palsy.

Researchers in Denmark found babies conceived with the help of in-vitro fertilization or fertility drugs were nearly twice as likely to be diagnosed with cerebral palsy than children conceived naturally.

Researchers blame higher rates of multiple births and pre-term delivery in assisted reproduction.

Despite these findings, the risk of having a baby with cerebral palsy is low.
