Abstract
During the 20 years since the first child was born in Sweden after

in vitro fertilisation, clinical policy has changed. During the early

1990s, the clinics performing in vitro fertilisation and the

National Board of Health and Welfare agreed to reduce the

number of embryos transferred to the uterus during in vitro fertilisation

from three to two. Here, we describe the changes in

multiple birth rates that have resulted from this change and their

impact on the rate of preterm birth. In future papers we intend

to describe maternal and child characteristics in greater detail.
