Multiple Birth Prenatal Classes

Posted on January 28, 2016. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , |

As soon as you are pregnant and especially between the ages of 30 and up, or had infertility assistance and learn you are pregnant, find out (usually from ultrasound) how many you are carrying.  If you are carrying two, three or more fetuses, take your multiple birth prenatal classes right away.  Don’t wait until you are well into your pregnancy.  So much of what you learn in class will be helpful right away, e.g. signs & symptoms of premature labour, nutrition for carrying multiples, and such.  Waiting too long may preclude you from attending classes due to being placed on bed rest or having your babies preterm, i.e. before 38 weeks.  Soon as you know you are carrying multiples, sign up for the classes right away!!  And very best wishes to all of you.
