premature delivery due to a multiple pregnancy

A premature birth is more liekly due to a multiple pregnancy of triplets.Twins may come slightly earlier than 39 weeks but the more babies that are carried inside a womb at once the more higher a risk pregnancy it is for the mum to be.

As soon as a multiple pregnancy is diagnoised as in the case if triplets more frequent antenatal visits may be necessary.Finshing work early is advised, bed rest, or even a short stay in hospital towards the end of the pregnany to give the babies a much better chance of gaining weight and maturing inside the womb.

A premature birth is mainly caused by the fact that multiple babies will stretch the womb quicker than a baby. The cervix may begin to open earlier than would be expected by one baby.
