Children born from frozen embryos have superior social skills, say researchers

Children born from frozen embryos are more sociable, self-reliant and better at communicating than naturally conceived children and fresh embryos, claim Chinese scientists. At the annual meeting in Hawaii of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, Lan Feng Xing, of Zhejiang University, said that these findings should dampen parents’ fears that IVF children will have developmental difficulties.
