The Multiple Births Foundation
Tel: 0208 383 3519
There are over 9,000 multiple births each year in the UK. The number is increasing with medical advances, particularly in the areas of infertility and care of pre-term births. Most people have little idea just how demanding multiple birth babies can be. The reality is that often parents' ability to cope is dramatically reduced by the problems that accompany having twins, triplets or more. As a result, the need for the correct care and support has never been greater and it is our aim to provide advice, information and support to multiple birth families and professionals working in the field.
