In the latest transformative shift, on January 1st 2024, the Prime Minister took to the public stage, announcing that subsidies for ART treatments in Denmark would extend to cover the second child* as well.

This is a follow-up to the groundbreaking move in 2023 where Denmark witnessed a pivotal change in legislation regarding Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) treatments. The government increased the available subsidized ART treatments from three to six, focusing initially on the first child.

The announcement has undoubtedly reached all corners of Denmark, especially among parents considering a second child through in vitro fertilization (IVF).
