(CNN) – A record number of women are using IVF treatments to get pregnant, according to a new report by the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology.

The group represents the greater majority of IVF clinics in America.

The report shows more than 61,000 in-vitro fertilization babies were born in 2012 from SART clinics, an increase of up to 2,000 infants from the year before.

IVF treatments accounted for nearly 2 percent of all babies born in the United States in 2012.
