San Francisco, CA – March 27, 2013 – The Pacific Fertility Center (PFC) reports exceptionally high pregnancy rates while minimizing risk of multiples through its new technology of elective Single Embryo Transfer (eSET). eSET works by identifying an embryo with the highest chance for pregnancy. One embryo is transferred to produce one child, with the rest stored for later use.
One embryo, one healthy child.
Multiple gestation, common after traditional fertility treatment, increases the risk of complications for both mother and child. Low birthweight increases health problems for the neonate, and the risk of lasting disabilities, such as intellectual disabilities, cerebral palsy, and vision and hearing loss. According to the March of Dimes, more than half of twins, and all higher order multiples, are born at low birthweight.
