In Vitro Births Put Caja on Alert

ivf_science(QCOSTARICA) The Medical Director of the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social, Dr. María Eugenia Villalta, updated the local press on the steps being taken to care for two expectant mothers who will have 10 babies between them very soon.  The mothers underwent in vitro fertilization overseas and then returned to Costa Rica.

The high risk births will happen at the Calderon Guardia and Mexico hospitals, where “all possible steps are being taken to have the necessary recourses available.”

5 medical centers will be on standby for the births, and the director stated that other patients would not be affected. But that special attention would be necessary, particularly in the case of the sextuplets, who will be born prematurely.

Doctor Villalta expressed that “it is important that when the in vitro law is made here that the number of fertilized eggs to be implanted is regulated. Right now there is no law, the fertilization is taking place outside the country and we have no control over that.”
