Successful IVF with One Embryo

I think a lot of In Vitro couples choose to have more than one embryo implanted because they want to increase the chances of getting pregnant.
If I had to go through In Vitro, I think I would be devastated if it didn't work. I wonder if parents will take this study's advice and only implant one embryo.

FROM NBC: Two isn't always better than one-especially when it comes to In-Vitro Fertilization. A new Scottish study finds women who get only one embryo implanted at a time as part of IVF are five times more likely to have a healthy baby than those who choose to implant two embryos at once. Single embryo transfer reduced the risk of premature births and cut the chances of a having a low weight baby by one-third, compared to a double embryo transfer. The study recommends doctors should advise women to implant one embryo at a time even freezing embryos for later use.
