Multiple Pregnancy (having more than one baby) at Fernandez Hospital

2001-2015

One of the well-known speciality hospitals for women and babies in Hyderabad, Fernandez Hospital has been providing personalized care with a high level of professionalism since its establishment in 1948. More than one and a half lakh babies have been delivered since its inception.

Apart from single babies, the doctors at Fernandez Hospital have also very successfully delivered multiple babies. Though multiple pregnancies with twins are common, triplets and quadruplets are not only rare but also complicated cases. Maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality, preterm birth and low birth weight are some of the complications related to multiple pregnancy. At Fernandez Hospital, if any complication arises during pregnancy they are handled very properly by skilled doctors making critical deliveries possible with normalcy.

Multiple pregnancies are known to be associated with the likelihood of pregnancy loss, preterm births, low birth weight babies and prolonged hospitalization. The expectant mother may develop high blood pressure or diabetes. In 2004, Fernandez Hospital found that there was enough evidence to support the need for a weekly special Out Patient Twins Clinic devoted to these mothers.
