Multiple pregnancy

Good antenatal care is necessary if you are pregnant with twins or triplets. The numbers of tests and scans depend on the type of twins or triplets you are having. Women with twins or triplets should be offered an ultrasound scan from 11 weeks to 13 weeks of their pregnancy to know what type of placenta and membranes your twins have and to check your due date.

What are the different types of Twins?

There are three types of twins or triplets:

Dichorionicdiamniotic (DCDA) twins: Each baby has their separate placenta with its separate inner membrane and outer membrane.

Monochorionicdiamniotic (MCDA) twins: Both the babies share a single placenta with the single outer membrane and two inner membranes.

Monochorionicmonoamniotic (MCMA) twins: Both the babies share both the inner and the outer membranes.

If your babies are MCDA, then the doctor may suggest you for more scans as this type of twins have the highest risk of twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS).

What are the risks in twin pregnancies?

Most multiple pregnancies are healthy and result in healthy babies, but you have to be aware when you are pregnant with multiple babies. If you are pregnant with one or more baby, then you are at higher risk of pregnancy complications such as:

  • Anaemia
  • Pre-eclampsia
  • Gestational diabetes

Ultrasound is necessary for the detection of the position of multiples and the decision of the optimal route delivery.
