This comprehensive overview of the known literature concerning the physical and psychosocial health of children conceived by ART brings together an international panel of experts in fertility medicine, epidemiology, medical genetics, obstetrics, twin research, psychosocial development and pediatrics. Each chapter gives a concise, readable commentary on the key areas of established knowledge. The book will prove an essential component for clinic library for fertility practitioners throughout the world. It will be useful for counselling families about known risks, and for placing in context what is generally a positive literature. Knowledge in this area has been restricted by the studies performed; however, there is a body of research that is hard for the busy fertility practitioner, counsellor, fertility nurse, or obstetrician to bring together and synthesize for their clients. The book is edited by Dr Alastair Sutcliffe - one of the world experts in this field. This is a revised and expanded edition of IVF Children - The First Generation. It is hoped that this will be a continuing project, in which periodic further updates will be published to maintain the currency of quality information needed to inform practitioners of what is a rapidly changing field.
