Health Tip: Carrying Twins?
They're at greater-than-average risk of complications
(HealthDay News) - A woman who is pregnant with more than one baby probably needs even more prenatal care than the average pregnant woman, since her babies are at greater-than-average risk of complications.
Here are possible complications of multiple pregnancies, courtesy of the American Pregnancy Association:
- Going into labor early.
- Pregnancy-induced hypertension (high blood pressure).
- Gestational diabetes.
- Restricted growth inside the uterus.
