The article discusses a study conducted in Denmark suggesting higher risk of large baby syndrome in singletons born after frozen embryo transfer (FET). The study involves two frozen embryo populations on singletons born after FET including born between 1997 and 2006 and sibling pairs between 1994 and 2007. It notes a separate 2008 study which found higher birthweight z-score in born after embryo cryopreservation than those born after fresh embryo transfer.
