Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book represents work of immense importance to those involved in assisted human conception treatments. . This book is an excellent reference source on the effects of assisted conception treatment. It will be consulted by clinical and scientific investigators alike and perhaps by general readers. . the author must be commended on the immense amount of time that must have been spent in attending to the fine detail and collating the data on pregnancy parturition and early development." (Peter Mcfaul, The Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, Vol. 6 (1), 2004)
