More than One Baby!

It seems almost common today for women to be pregnant with more than one baby. You read about it in the newspapers and magazines, and you hear about it on TV and the radio. Some women are giving birth to more babies than we could have imagined not long ago. This has occurred for many reasons, including the following:
use of fertility drugs
use of in-vitro fertilization
women having babies later in life
some women having more children
What does this mean for the typical woman? Some factors, such as being older, increase your chances of having more than one baby. If you have in-vitro fertilization, this also increases your chances for multiple fetuses.
No matter how it occurs, being pregnant with two or more babies affects you in many ways. In this chapter, I discuss what changes you may have to make in pregnancy and what adjustments you may be required to deal with in a multiple birth. These adjustments may be necessary for your health and your babies' health. If this happy event occurs in your life, work with your doctor and other healthcare professionals to help ensure your pregnancy is healthy and safe.
