28 babies born through IVF process last year

Twenty-eight babies – 13 boys and 15 girls – were born through the IVF process last year, some of them from cycles initiated in 2016. This emerges from the annual report of the Authority for Promotion of the Embryo, which was placed on the Table of the House.

It is also stated in the report that 36 other babies are expected to born from cycles started last year, bringing the total number of babies born through IVF from cycles started last year to 64 in number.

304 IVF cycles were started last year, of which only 75 were carried out privately, with the rest being carried out at Mater Dei. These led to 66 pregnancies, which at this stage shows a success rate of just under 22%.

It also emerges from the Authority’s report that out of these 66 pregnancies, 12 women miscarried, 22 gave birth to babies, and another 32 are waiting to give birth.

It further results from the report that 62 other babies were born out of all cycles started in 2016, which translates into a success rate of just over 20%.
