In vitro fertilization, IVF, is one of several techniques couples can try to combat fertility problems. During an IVF process, an egg is removed from the woman’s ovaries and fertilized with sperm in a laboratory.

Then, the fertilized egg, or the embryo, goes back to the woman’s womb to grow and develop. Studies show that infant development is normal in children conceived through IVF. There is nothing strange, unique, or anything like that. IVF babies are just like normal babies.

The only problem and risk factor might be because of premature delivery common in multiple pregnancies.

For more than 40 years, IVF is a way to help couples cope with fertility issues. Now, a documentary examines the emotional, financial, and physical hurtles that come with infertility. Check these couples journey from infertility to IVF babies.
