A woman with a multiple pregnancy needs more calories and nutrients, more frequent prenatal visits, and more rest.
Having more than one baby is especially exciting—and complicated. Find out what to watch for, including a greater chance of anemia and preterm birth.
Because many multiples are small and born early, they may be initially cared for in a special care nursery called the neonatal intensive care unit.
Multiple pregnancy is a pregnancy with two or more fetuses. In the United States, the multiple birth rate is rising.
