Midwives:   Rosaleen Rea RM
   

Multiple pregnancies are exciting both for parents and doctors.  The care provided is consultant-led together with senior medical and midwifery staff teams as these pregnancies may carry more risks. The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines are followed to ensure that you are given the best possible care.

When you are confirmed to have a multiple pregnancy you will automatically be referred to the clinic by your midwife. Our aim is to see all multiple pregnancies for the first hospital appointment between 11-14 weeks. Thereafter, if your twins are non-identical you will be seen for a routine anomaly scan at 20 weeks and then return to the multiple pregnancy clinic at approximately 24, 28, 32 and 36weeks.

If your twins are identical you will be seen more regularly and if you are carrying triplets or more, an individual management plan will be made.

The clinic is held every Wednesday afternoon from 1.30 to 5.00pm.
