We offer expertise and innovative services for your nutritional needs and for complications that may arise (including preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, fetal abnormalities and premature birth).
Why Choose Us When Expecting Multiples
We have extensive experience in every aspect of multiple pregnancy, delivery and newborn care. More than 200 mothers deliver twins, triplets or quadruplets here each year.
Our skilled and compassionate team of physicians, nurses, nutritionists and social workers are available at every step.
Our deep experience in twin complications includes growth restriction due to uterine crowding and uteroplacental insufficiency; shared placenta; and the rare twin-to-twin transfusion.
The NICU advantage: Our Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) – the most state-of-the art in New England – provides reassurance that even babies born early will have the best start possible. Our twin and triplet rooms and lactation support services for feeding twins or more are just two of the reasons why Brigham and Women’s is a destination for parents expecting multiples.
