Over the past decade there has been a significant increase in the use of assisted reproductive technology (ART) across the United States. In 2017 there were 284,385 ART cycles performed and these cycles resulted in 78, 052 infants1. Multiple studies have identified an increase risk of preterm birth, placenta previa, placental abruption and preeclampsia in the first and second trimester in women with singleton pregnancy resulting from ART compared to naturally conceived pregnancies2-4. Yet, it is important to evaluate if this correlates to an increased risk of antepartum admissions for ART compared to spontaneously conceived pregnancy and that burden on the health care system.
