No developmental differences in children conceived via assisted reproductive technology

A study comparing developmental milestones of children conceived via ART and spontaneously conceived children showed both groups achieved developmental milestones in a similar timeline. A significant difference existed at 12 months where those conceived through ART were more likely to report their child met all milestones than spontaneously conceived children’s parents. Developmental milestones were created using CDC guidelines. This is the first study to analyze childhood development from the perspective of the parent.
