This book covers the same material as any pregnancy guide, and in approximately the same order. Starting with proper nutrition and continuing through the standard routines of visits and testing, it finishes up with the actual labor, postnatal care, and a walk-through of those first few days at home. Because all this information is aimed specifically at multiple pregnancies, you'll also find information about subjects like selective reduction, bed rest, and the chances of having at least one baby delivered by cesarean section. Through it all, Bowers's wise and experienced tone manages to soothe while educating. Bowers emphasizes that "multiple pregnancy is demanding work, but the rewards are matchless." She frequently encourages parents to seek out support, whether through a parenting group or a counselor, and provides an excellent guide at the end of the book that offers contact information for all sorts of potential help.
Destined to become a classic for parents of multiples, this sourcebook is one you'll want to keep handy throughout your pregnancy and beyond. --Jill Lightner

This book has all the information you need. Most of the others are fluff and redundant. The other book I would recommend is when you're expecting twins triplets or quads.Published 9 months ago by Mama's truth
This book was a great read for a first-time mother to twins. It gave purely facts and information on what to expect throughout pregnancy up to delivery.Published on January 7, 2010 by Elizabeth

Not a lot of content that is different from books on single pregnancy. Poorly written, including many testimonials.Published on December 12, 2008 by K. Look
