About Multiple Pregnancies
Women who are pregnant with multiples need special care. While most multiple pregnancies result in healthy babies, possible complications during pregnancy include preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, and placental issues. Twins and triplets can also be at increased risk for complications, including preterm birth. Working with a specialist can decrease the risk of complications and make it more likely to carry your babies to term.
