I've had quite a few people ask me to cover today's topic, so I'm excited to be talking all about pregnancy & birth with twins in this episode!
Obviously having twins is different than having just one baby, but there are some key things you need to know about how your pregnancy, labor, delivery and postpartum period will be affected by having multiple babies.
I will talk about how frequently twins happen, how we differentiate between the types of twin pregnancies, and how each type will affect your prenatal care.
I will also tell you about the complications that can arise with each of the types of twin pregnancies, both during pregnancy and during labor & delivery. There are a few risks for the birthing person that are slightly different than with a singleton pregnancy, but overall the biggest differences in care will affect your babies.
And lastly I'll cover why you should absolutely get in touch with a lactation consultant before your babies arrive and keep them on speed dial for any breastfeeding issues.
If you are a parent of twins, I'd love to hear your thoughts on the experience - send me a DM on Instagram!
