Babies conceived from artificial methods such as In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) have the same cognitive skills as the naturally-born babies, revealed a scientific research study. This extensive research came out with this finding that that IVF Babies are not any smarter or less smarter than natural babies. Average cognitive skills are the same between both the groups.
Over time, with significant improvement in technology, multiple pregnancies in IVF and other forms of ART has reduced drastically. Earlier, when multiple pregnancies were a common occurrence in ART and IVF, there used to be associated risks of premature births leading to low birth-weight. This led to developmental problems of the baby. But with advanced IVF techniques and technology, and with the increased adoption of single embryo transfer, chances of single pregnancy is more. Thus the child gets better nutrition and is born with healthier birth-weight. IVF and ART born babies are as healthy, as smart and as brainy as naturally-born babies.
