Is special care needed in twin pregnancy?

Since there is a greater risk of suffering complications in multiple pregnancies, visits to the gynecologist will be more numerous and medical control over the pregnancy will be greater.

The mother's diet is very important for the babies to grow at an adequate rate and for the woman to gain the necessary weight so that low birth weight does not occur. In a twin pregnancy, the woman should gain 15 to 20 kilos.

In case there is a risk of premature delivery, the doctor would indicate absolute rest until it is time to give birth.
