Overview

This comprehensive overview of the known literature concerning the physical and psychosocial health of children conceived by ART brings together an international panel of experts in fertility medicine, epidemiology, medical genetics, obstetrics, twin research, psychosocial development and pediatrics. Each chapter gives a concise, readable commentary on the key areas of established knowledge. The book will prove an essential component for clinic library for fertility practitioners throughout the world. It will be useful for counselling families about known risks, and for placing in context what is generally a positive literature. Knowledge in this area has been restricted by the studies performed; however, there is a body of research that is hard for the busy fertility practitioner, counsellor, fertility nurse, or obstetrician to bring together and synthesize for their clients. The book is edited by Dr Alastair Sutcliffe - one of the world experts in this field. This is a revised and expanded edition of IVF Children - The First Generation. It is hoped that this will be a continuing project, in which periodic further updates will be published to maintain the currency of quality information needed to inform practitioners of what is a rapidly changing field.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Harley Ginsberg, M.D.(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This book reviews and discusses the findings of studies pertaining to children conceived after various types of assisted reproductive technology (ART).
Purpose: According to the editor, a pediatrician from the United Kingdom, the purpose is to provide "a useful source of information in one place for those who wish to have a reference" on the subject of the health of ART children. As pediatricians are called upon to provide healthcare for an increasing number of these children, a source regarding expectations could prove useful.
Audience: In the preface, the editor states that he hopes "that some members of the public will enjoy reading this book, although it is principally aimed at medical scientists, fertility specialists, fertility nurses and all those involved with assisted conception." Additionally, this might be a useful resource for pediatric subspecialists including neurologists, neonatologists, and developmental pediatricians.
Features: "The majority of the authors are from Europe, primarily the United Kingdom. The findings of the studies evaluated are presented in the context of: presence or absence of major congenital anomalies; growth and neurodevelopmental well-being; and family relationships altered as a result of the birth of a child from ART. The editor concludes the book with a 4-page summation including a commentary on the future direction of this science. "
Assessment: Although appealing to a limited audience, this book provides some insight into the evolving world of pregnancies and subsequent care of children conceived with ART. As more data is available, additional editions will likely be forthcoming. For those interested in this subject, the book is concise and the messages well communicated.
