When it feels like a baby will never be a reality it's hard to imagine having twins or more.
In fact, on average, one in five IVF pregnancies will be a multiple pregnancy compared to one in 80 for women who conceive naturally, which is a staggering difference.
Having a baby is one of the most amazing, wonderful experiences in the world, but it can also be challenging, financially draining, exhausting and demanding – and that is with just one baby. Sometimes it’s difficult to say when times are hard, you may feel that you can’t complain because you so desperately wanted a child and knew there was a risk of multiple births. Whether you are pregnant or a parent of ART-conceived twins, triplets or more, support is available for you here.
