1. Great tips- I don’t have twins, I only had one but I wish I was more informed and educated about my choices in having my daughter. I just thought I would be taken care of by doctor and it would all magically happen. 🙂

  2. Great post! I would suggest not only knowing hospital policy, but delivering at one with a good NICU (level 3, here in the US).

    It won’t seem like a big deal until one has a problem and has to be sent to a NICU 10 miles away from where you, your spouse, and the other twin are.

    • That’s a really good point. Our c-section was delayed as they didn’t have room in the SCBU and it would have meant them being sent to another hospital if there was a problem. Always good to check your options!

  3. A lot of valuable information here. As you know my twins are a lot older so were born before we had internet, I didn’t even know Tamba existed until they were gone 1! Thanks for linking up with #MultipleMadness xxx

    This is great info thanks. I’m 10 weeks with identical (two sacs) from IVF (we had an 8 week scan). Got my first apt when I’ll be 11+ weeks, then next scan at 13+ weeks. I’ll mention the NICE guidelines and ask to see a specialist sooner as we want to check it’s still two etc. I’m full of concerns but trying to be relaxed and excited. Thanks again, K xx

    • Oh congratulations! I think these early weeks can be a bit anxious as you have so many questions but hopefully you’ll be well looked after. It really does depend where you live, some areas do so much better than others. Check out the Tamba Facebook page as they share info about care in different areas. Good luck with everything, have twins is just so special xx

    I would love to know how you ladies knew if you’re having identical or fraternal twins? My doctor says that the only ways to know would be if having boy/girl twins (then they are obviously fraternal) or a visual inspection (or blood test) after birth.

    This is really useful information and helpful. I’m 30 week pregnant with twins and my gynae said I’m definitely going to deliver through cesarean. I’m not really comfortable with it yet but I’m happy to do anything that will ensure that the kids enters this world safely. I delivered my 4 years old naturally and I was hoping for the same.

  7. Love this! I am 23 weeks pregnant with MO/Di twins. I don’t think the worrying ever stops but it helps to be educated on twins. Literally anything can happen!
