With women pursuing families much later in life we see more multiple births in our practice. Additionally, as women rely on medications to induce conception there is a higher risk and a higher proportion of multiple births than ever before. We are adept at handling these pregnancies in our practice. Multiple births need special consideration and attention because they carry more risk to both mother and fetus. It is difficult on the mother’s body to support and nourish more than one fetus. It is also difficult because multiple births often do not go full term, which means there are higher risks of health issues with premature infants. Don’t worry, we’ll give you the best care possible at OB Doctor bradenton.
