Helpful Hints for Expectant Parents
Seek good prenatal care. This is extremely important due to the tendency towards toxemia, anemia, premature delivery and other possible complications.
You will need a lot of rest as a multiple pregnancy is likely to be more uncomfortable and may require frequent and longer rest periods.
Meet your prospective pediatrician to discuss potential problems and concerns.
Attend a baby care prenatal class if they are to be your first babies.
Take time to organize your family and home. Start making mutual plans as the care of multiple birth children should be a joint responsibility of mother and father. Be sure to include all family members in planning these goals.
Plan one room to care for the babies. Furnishings should be sturdy, easy to clean and safe.
Ensure that you and your spouse can spend time away from the children - you’ll need the break!
