Multiple Pregnancy

Carrying more than one baby is known as a multiple pregnancy. Twins are the most common type of multiple pregnancy. Triplets, quadruplets, quintuplets or more, are less common. If you have a multiple pregnancy, you may be at risk for:

  • Preeclampsia
  • Anemia
  • Gestational diabetes
  • Hyperemesis gravidarum
  • Placenta previa
  • Premature rupture of the membranes and preterm labor
  • Fetal growth abnormalities
  • Fetal anomalies

Our maternal fetal medicine specialists offer consultation and evaluation of multiples throughout the pregnancy.
