Expecting Multiples is authored by MOST (Mothers of Supertwins), a community of families, volunteers and professionals founded in 1987. MOST is the leading national nonprofit provider of support, education and research on higher-order multiple births, and it’s mission is to advocate for quality prenatal care, promote healthy deliveries, and supply information to all multiple birth families in order to support successful parenting through every phase of their children's development.

The book covers EVERYTHING you need to know about higher-order multiple gestations such as basic facts about multiples like the incidence and epidemiology of multiples, diagnosing a multiple pregnancy, gestational outcomes, zygosity, and fetal reductions. The book also provides the tools each mother needs to be proactive during her pregnancy including what steps to take to choose the best healthcare provider and hospital for delivery.

Readers won’t want to miss the exclusive full-length article in this book written by perinatologist John Elliott, MD outlining how his practice in Phoenix has helped many expectant parents of multiples have healthy outcomes. The book also covers, common prenatal tests and treatments during multiple birth gestations, proper nutrition and weight gain during pregnancy, losses during a multiple birth pregnancy, taking prenatal classes, possible complications like preterm labor, tips for managing bedrest as well as delivery of multiples.

Also included in the book is the ultimate guide to equipment and supplies families may need, practical suggestions for helping older siblings, spouses and extended family prepare, as well as supportive information from the experts, other parents of multiples, on issues like coping with stress, post-partum depression, insurance claims, financial concerns, safety and more.

Throughout the book MOST includes information about THE BEST resources for families expecting multiples, including where to find helpful items, many available FREE, like feeding charts, the latest research studies and statistics, online tools for scheduling volunteer help, support groups for families facing specific challenges, and so MUCH MORE.

Healthy outcomes are absolutely possible for twins, triplets, quadruplets, quintuplets, and even sextuplets or more. This comprehensive guide is one of the most important purchases you can make during your pregnancy to help you achieve that goal.
