In brief: A few ideas

A good embryo comes from a good, egg, and to a lesser extent, good sperm.
Nutrition, stress, alcohol use, smoking have all been shown to contribute to egg quality. The type of stimulation used in ivf has a big effect, and there are medications available that will improve the egg yield in women experiencing problems with stimulation.

In brief: Age

Generally, age is the biggest predictor of healthy eggs and embryos, however other factors may also contribute such as pcos, endometriosis, sperm fragmentation, genetics.
