Reproductive technologies, like IVF and ICSI, are enabling pregnancy and family building where it was not possible before. All of our patients must be informed of and recognize the risks associated with fertility treatment. These risks should not, however, dissuade anyone from considering these therapies. On the contrary, the overwhelming likelihood is that, once a pregnancy is established, it will progress successfully to delivery and a healthy child. We need to recognize these risks to provide help understand and take measures to reduce the risks to all children. We will continue to watch these studies carefully in our ongoing effort to assure our patients of excellent pregnancy rates, at low risk. ![] Footnote:1. K. Wisborg, H.J. Ingerslev, and T.B.
