Generally these days, particularly in Australia, we aim to implant one embryo at a time and that allows IVF to be as safe as possible for the mother and the baby and avoid multiple pregnancies.
Occasionally, one embryo can split into two pregnancies. That’s unavoidable, but that only happens about 1% of the time when a single embryo transfer occurs. Any extra embryos that aren’t transferred can be safely frozen so that they can be used at a later date if necessary.
