Can I become a single mother of two?

In principle, the answer is yes, but depends on how you achieve it. There are two possible ways: performing a multiple embryo transfer (more than one embryo) or freezing your resulting embryos to conceive in the future after having your first child.

Multiple embryo transfers are not recommended because multiple pregnancies entails way more risks than singleton pregnancies: low birth weight, preterm labor/delivery, preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, cesarean section, intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR), etc.
