With ongoing advances in assisted reproduction, more women than ever before are having multiple births -- especially triplets and quadruplets -- and they're having them later in life. Because every multiple birth is by definition a special needs birth, parents of multiples need all the knowledge available to promote a successful outcome.
Having Twins -- and More provides expectant mothers with everything they need to make informed choices and to give birth at term to healthy babies. This comprehensive handbook emphasizes nutrition as well as the physical and emotional adaptation to carrying and raising
multiples, while offering new insights into the risks, complications, and treatments -- candid information that is assembled only in this book.

New information on the proper feeding of multiples, cesarean
section and recovery, helping older siblings adjust, and multiples with special needs
More than 100 new photographs, charts, and tables
