This book provides a detailed overview of the possible risks associated with ART pregnancies and their clinical management.
While most pregnancies following Assisted Reproduction Treatment (ART) will progress normally and without any complications to mother or baby, some women who conceive after ART as well as their babies are at increased risk of pregnancy complications. There are some schools of thoughts proposing pregnancies following IVF should be regarded as being "high risk" and requires special attention. There are various reasons why ART pregnancies may be at higher risk - Female and male age factor, increased chance of multiple pregnancies, underlying cause of subfertility (pelvic pathology, uterine pathology, endometrial dysfunction) and potential increase in birth defects.
This is an essential read for obstetricians, fertility specialists and Post-graduate trainees.​
