Twins or More
Every year in New Zealand around 1000 families will welcome
twins, triplets or occasionally even higher order multiples. That
number is increasing every year, partly due to the increase in
fertility treatments such as clomiphene and IVF which have a higher
chance of producing multiples, and partly due to women leaving it
longer to start their families - women over 35 are more likely to
conceive twins or triplets.
Finding out you are pregnant with twins or more can be a huge
shock! All of a sudden the baby you have been planning for has
become two, or three, or even more! This section on Twins and
More to give you an insight into what life with twins and higher
order multiples is like!
