How much are couples willing to risk in order conceiving a child? Is In-vitro fertilization worth the risk of your child being stillborn, or having birth defects? There are many Pro's and Con's on this topic. For many couples dream’s that have been vanished with the possibility of having a child of its own blood, IVF might be worth the risk. Although you do have a risk of running into this problem, how likely is it for your child to encounter them. Invitro fertilization is an effective means of getting pregnant for many women.
Birth defects are the most common issues that face while conduction In-Vitro fertilization.

I cannot agree with the other party of this process being unnatural since obviously this problems has never occurred to them or their dream of becoming parents are vanished by other factors.
