A survey by Tamba, the Twins and Multiple Births Association, has found that 22 per cent of mothers who have multiple births felt "abandoned" and struggled to look after more than one baby in postnatal wards.
More than 21 per cent also said they were not sufficiently prepared for the likelihood that one or more of their babies would be premature. This compares with around half who ended up giving birth prematurely.
