Preparing for the Birth of Twins


Expecting twins and giving birth to twins is quite rigourous as compared to normal pregnancy. You need to take right care if you are expecting twins and prepare the right way for the birth of twins. Read on to find tips for preparing for the birth of twins.


If you have come to know that you are pregnant and you are carrying twins or multiples, you need to make lot of preparation and plan regarding many subjects. Well, if you are planning to get pregnant and want to plan having twins, it is not certain in natural way. Even if you take drugs for hyper ovulation, you will not be sure whether you are going to conceive twins or multiples or even single child also.

If you are desperate or by any reason want to have twins go for In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF). However, this will require spending some money here. You should consult your doctor for that and perhaps he can workout a solution for you. Whether your children are twins or born separately after a proper duration, you will love them because they are yours.


Plan Beforehand
 

No matter whether you are pregnant with twins or singles, it is good to plan beforehand. Make your birth plan and discuss it with your doctor. Things may change at the last moment and you might have to make alterations in your plan, but it is important to workout options beforehand.

If you are expecting twins, you should not presume that you will have to go for cesarean. You can give birth to your twins in natural way and without going under the knife if you plan and work accordingly.

Since you are carrying twins, it is better to give birth to your children in hospital so that everything is ready under any emergency circumstances. Do not plan for home birth of your children to be on the safe side. In the hospital there will be all preparation and a number of manpower to help you deliver your children safely.

There is a misconception that twins born naturally are not healthy. You can give birth to twins naturally and without much problem provided the position of the babies is favourable.


Preparations Before the Birth of Twins

Here is what you need to keep in mind while preparing for the birth of twins.

  • Prepare a checklist few weeks before you expect to deliver your child.
  • Keep in touch with your doctor in the last few weeks. If you find any abnormal signs or symptoms you can check out with the doctor or his assistance.
  • Join a childbirth class that is certified and will help you plan and prepare for the birth of your twins.
  • Do not believe or get carried away by tips and advices given by others who are not educated.
  • Get the ultrasound done when your doctor suggests you to do. Keep a record of all the ultrasound results as the doctor might need it for reference during childbirth.

Just keep in mind that, mothers of twins need special piece of advice regarding giving birth and also throughout the pregnancy period. However, it is good to get the advice from a doctor or from your experienced friends or colleagues that have given birth to twins or multiples. 

One thing that you should keep in mind is that you should not follow any kind of instruction from random source. Also, do not fear or get anxious about the childbirth. Expecting twins is natural and if you remain active and follow the doctor’s advice throughout your pregnancy period, you will be able to give birth to your children naturally too. Plan and stay organised as well as be alert and cautious too especially during the last few weeks of your pregnancy period.
