Abstract:

Multifetal pregnancies – twins, triplets and higher-order multiples – are at increased risk for pregnancy and birth-related complications. However, many women, and even their obstetric care providers, don’t seem to understand the literal meaning of the “high risk” label. For many, it will change every aspect of long-held desires and plans for pregnancy, birth, type of obstetric care provider and birth place, unless that woman receives the knowledge and support needed to take “control” of her pregnancy and her babies’ birth. This session will look at the increased risks associated with multiple pregnancy and birth, and the meaning “high risk” should have for the expectant mother. Strategies will also be discussed about ways to help empower these women so they become partners with their obstetric healthcare providers in order to achieve childbirth goals.
