Expecting a baby can be an exciting, challenging and awe-inspiring time. But what if you discover that there is not just one life growing inside you but two? While in many ways a twins pregnancy will be similar to a singleton one, there are symptoms, considerations and complications which are unique to, or more common in, a twins pregnancy.
The discovery that you are expecting twins may by one of sheer joy and excitement, or of disbelief and uncertainty. It may be a chance for an ‘instant family’ or it may mean the birth of two babies when finances and living arrangements will only comfortably accommodate one. Either way, questions you never thought you needed answers to, now present themselves.
These are just a few questions about your twins pregnancy to which you may want answers. We’ve answered these and many more. If you can’t find an answer to your question here, you can ask our expert midwife in our community forum.
