IVF children ‘face timebomb of poor health and short lives???

I read this article and thought to myself do people really think that IVF children are worse off than children conceived naturally???  There are studies that show that IVF children have an increased likelihood of developing heart issues.  I did have a test to check on my son’s heart when I was around 24 weeks and all was fine.

Could it be that maybe as a society we are all eating poorly, not exercising and just not being as healthy as we once were.  I conceived my son via IVF and I would not trade that for anything.

Made me angry to read this and wondered if anyone else felt the same way…

    Is it backed by scientific research and case studies? Or is it just someone’s opinion? My daughter never had any issues in the womb and has been strong since day one. Even the doctor commented on it and she delivered thousands of babies. She has also been very developmentally advanced so far in her first year. People just want to find fault and problems in EVERYTHING these days. I guess if it’s an issue that’s been revealed over years of case studies it more concerning than angering. I will say I heard something this weekend made me madder than I think i have ever been in my life and that was when my parents told me a man we grew up with won’t have anything to do with his grandchild because he was “manufactured” through IVF. Sickening. It’s hard to understand people looking at it that way when i we look at as the most amazing thing in the world.

      Its 2 case studies which is nothing compared to the amount of children born via IVF. The heart issues I know has been several studies and I had to get more testing to rule out things but again it might be an issue for any child.
