NICU Care for Twins, Triplets and More

Our maternal-fetal medicine specialists are seeing new and existing patients virtually and in-person as needed. Read our Safe Care Commitment to learn how we are continuing to provide care for you at this time.

Intensive Care for Multiples

Because many twins and triplets arrive early, our state-of-the-art Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is one reason that Brigham and Women’s Hospital is a chosen destination for families expecting multiples. We offer leading, comprehensive care for newborn twins, triplets and more – and the parents who care for them. Our newly renovated NICU, designed with multiples in mind, enables you to be with your babies 24/7 in private rooms for twins or adjoining rooms for triplets. Expert lactation support helps you in feeding. Our capabilities, plus your love, together help your babies grow and develop.

Why Choose Us When You are Expecting Multiples:

  • We are New England’s most experienced hospital for twins and triplets. More than 200 mothers deliver multiples here each year.
  • Our NICU is a world leader in neurocritical care, using the most advanced techniques to enhance healing and development of the infant brain, including the world’s first in-unit MRI scanner designed specifically for infants.
  • Extremely low birthweight babies, as young as 23 weeks gestation, receive critical breathing and feeding assistance.
  • As babies grow, they move to our Growth and Development Unit, which provides gentle homelike stimulation for babies and hands-on instruction for parents to prepare you all for the transition to home.
  • A unique NICU Follow-Up Clinic assesses and supports your children from NICU discharge until kindergarten, monitoring each child’s progress and connecting you with experts if needed.

One Family’s Story

Pregnant with twins, Lisa developed a rare, life-threating disorder that required emergency delivery. Her premature twins were brought immediately to the Brigham and Women’s NICU. There, they grew and thrived under the most advanced care. At last, the twins were strong enough to begin their next chapter at home.
