More babies being born with fertility help in the U.S. - KFDA - NewsChannel 10 / Amarillo News, Weather, Sports

More babies being born with fertility help in the U.S.

More babies being born across the country are done so with a little help. Two percent of children conceived in the U.S. are now done so with advanced fertility help.

In 2012, in vitro fertilization helped a record of nearly 62,000 babies be born. That is 2,000 more than the previous year.

Babies conceived through IVF now make up more than one-percent of all births in the nation. New advances in this technology is also leading more women to turn to this option.

More women are now using one embryo at a time to avoid multiple births.
