Test-tube babies show no emotional problems

Babies born with the help of fertility treatment grow into emotionally and socially well-adjusted children, according to new research.

The world's first study that followed in-vitro, or test tube, babies to the brink of adolescence showed that youngsters who had been conceived through fertility treatments do not suffer any more psychological problems than other children.

Since Louise Brown, the world's first test tube baby, was born 23 years ago, more than a million children worldwide have been born using Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART).

In some countries as many as three percent of children have been conceived using some form of fertility treatment. "These very wanted children are well-adjusted and much loved," Professor Susan Golombok, told a fertility conference.

"My parents needed help and I'm grateful they got it, otherwise I wouldn't be here," said Susannah Hedgley who lives near Belfast.
