Laughter really may be the best medicine, if the results of recent IVF research are anything to go by. A study of 219 IVF patients showed that the women who were entertained by a professional “medical clown” shortly after the embryos were implanted had a higher pregnancy success rate. Overall, 36 per cent became pregnant, compared to 20 per cent of those who didn’t watch the comedy act.
The creator of the study explains that laughter acts as a natural anti-stress mechanism – something which can make all the difference to women going through such a stressful process as IVF.
The reactions shocked me.
