Multiples and Twins Directory

If you give birth to twins, triplets, or more, it is called a multiple birth. Multiple births have become much more common in recent years with the increasing popularity of fertility treatments such as vitro fertilization (IVF). Pregnant women over 30 are also more likely to give birth to multiples. A multiple pregnancy raises the risk of pregnancy-related complications, such as preeclampsia, premature delivery, and low birth weight.
