A Third of IVF Babies Have ‘Mixed or Negative’ Feelings About Growing Up Without a Father

July 5, 2016

(The Telegraph) – More than a third of children born via IVF to single mothers have expressed either mixed or negative feelings about their lack of a father figure. Researchers from the University of Cambridge found that 39 percent of children aged four to nine felt ‘neutral’ about their lack of a prominent male figure at home, while 27 percent had ‘mixed feelings’ about the situation, and a further eight percent took a ‘negative’ view.
