The Multiples Program

If you’re carrying two or more babies, you’re at higher risk for preterm birth and medical complications during your pregnancy.

The Multiples Program is here to help, with coaching and frequent monitoring to help you carry your babies longer, which results in higher birth weights and healthier babies.

A registered nurse  will meet with you to discuss:

  • Nutrition and activity recommendations 
  • Weight gain recommendations
  • Possible risks/unique concerns for multiples
  • Generalized pregnancy plan
  • Available resources

Your nurse will work with you to create a plan for your pregnancy, including the frequency of ultrasound evaluations. These typically take place every 2 to 4 weeks, depending upon the trimester, the type of multiples, and any maternal medical complications.

Should any of the babies share a placenta, they will be closely monitored for the potential of developing Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome. EvergreenHealth is one of the few hospitals in the country that provides in-utero surgical treatment for Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome.

Top Resource for Multiples

EvergreenHealth's program is one of the very few established multiples programs in the United States. Together with the advanced care offered by the Fetal Therapy program (such as Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome), it makes EvergreenHealth a top resource in the Pacific Northwest for the care of multiples.
