Multiple Births

Multiple pregnancies are the single biggest risk of fertility treatment to the health and the welfare of both mother and child. Multiple pregnancies carry higher risk of preterm (premature) labour, miscarriage and low birth weight. Therefore the birth of a single, healthy child is the safest, most desirable outcome of fertility treatment.

In our clinic, we encourage all good prognosis couples to have to just one embryo transferred to reduce the probability of multiple pregnancies.

The HFEA has set a target for all clinics in UK to limit the risk of multiple births to less than 15% in the year 2011/2012. Centres are currently working towards a 10% multiple birth rate.

 

Proportion of single live births for this clinic (July 2013-end June 2014 data)

91.1%

HFEA Target for single births (October 2012 onwards)
