IVF and C-section

I was just watching vid on IVF and it said that women who undergo IVF always deliver via c-section. This doesn't seem right. Is that true and if so, is it being overcautious?

Obviously my baby fever has not gone away even though I'm pregnant, considering I'm still interested in conception videos! haha! Well, YouTube did suggest I would like it. It didn't seem to be very good quality, hence why I'm curious about the validity of the content. Thanks for satisfying my curiosity! :)

    Absolutely untrue. Type of conception has nothing to do with the type of delivery you'll have.

    I agree that this is very untrue. A friend of mine has gone through IVF in order to be a surrogate mother and had a homebirth.

    I conceived via IVF. I am planning a natural and vaginal birth, and my Dr. is on board with that. I've never heard or read anything like that.

    My guess is they would say that because if the high rate of multiples, and multiples are almost always a c-s.
    I did IVF and I'm planning in a vagibal birth.

    I know several IVF moms and only one had a section... and only because she had quads! one had twins naturally, even. I know more "regular" conception moms who had c-sections :)

    Thanks ladies. You all are quicker and more informative than google! That vid didn't look quite right anyways.
