74. How many mothers of multiples have subsequent pregnancies?
families do have children after the birth of their multiples. The ongoing
MOST Subsequent Pregnancy survey currently has 32 responses from families
who had one or more children after their multiples. An overwhelming majority
of those respondents, 70%, actually experienced a spontaneous pregnancy,
and the remaining 30% used treatments for infertility to conceive. In
fact, 16% of these responses subsequently gave birth to multiples again.
The majority of the singleton subsequent pregnancies went near full term,
over 38 weeks.

MOST also offers articles on topics related to subsequent pregnancies after multiples for families facing or considering another pregnancy.
The book titled Raising Multiple Birth Children includes information about subsequent pregnancies and is available through MOST's Amazon affiliate program.
