The number of multiple pregnancies achieved by In vitro fertilization is steadily decreasing over the last years. This leads to increased interest in the course and complications of singleton IVF pregnancies. The purpose of this review is to examine the specific features of the second half of pregnancy, delivery and the newborn in singleton pregnancies achieved by In vitro fertilization. Key findings include pregnancy duration, frequency of preterm birth, low birth weight and small for gestational age neonates. Complications of pregnancy – preeclampsia, gestational diabetes and placenta previa – were also assessed. Research is done according to the method of delivery and the condition of the newborn from these pregnancies.
