    In most cases children conceived by IVF are healthy. However, several long-term follow-up studies have found that IVF children are more likely to have accessed health care services, such as hospitals, for surgery or other medical interventions than children conceived naturally. Some experts have found that this can be explained by circumstances around the child's birth, such as being born prematurely or as one of a multiple pregnancy.

    Hi Viji,
    IVF baby is just like the normal baby, baby won't have much difference. So, no worries! Baby health depends on the mother's health in the early stage, so ask your sister to take care of herself!
