Re: Selective reduction

It's really simple. If you're not willing to consider selective reduction, don't get 5 embryos implanted. I'm sorry that your friend is faced with such a difficult choice, but I think she should go with the option most likely to produce what she wanted in the first place- a healthy baby. Multiples are high risk for mother and child and the chances of long-term health problems go up with each day a child is born pre-term. I'd get the reduction, but then again I wouldn't let the doctors implant more than 3 embryos at a time either (this is the legal limit in Germany BTW).
