IVF Parents Should Tell Children How They Were Conceived at Any Age, Research Finds

(The Herald Sun) – IT’S never too late for parents who used assisted reproductive treatment to have a baby to tell their children how they were conceived, a study suggests. The Victorian research challenges the assumption that it’s a case of “the earlier, the better” when it came to children learning about the way they came into the world. The study, by the Jean Hailes Research Unit at Monash University, shows the age of disclosure makes no difference in terms of the child’s general wellbeing and how they relate to their parents.
