Ask a midwife: Do you have questions about twin pregnancy or birth?

Ask and get your questions answered by a midwife working in a hospital team designated to women pregnant with twins.

By Kate Phillipa Clark

Are you expecting twins in your family, and do you have questions about twin pregnancy or birth? You now have the opportunity  to ask for advice or input from a midwife working in a hospital team designated to women pregnant with twins.

“We’ve invited a midwife to help answering some of the questions that are – and will be – published in our new twin forum. We believe it will be interesting for expectant mothers and fathers to get her answers to some of the questions,” says Kate Phillipa Clark, founder of about-twins.com.
Kate Phillipa Clark stresses that if a mother is worried about her pregnancy or about giving birth, she must seek advice from a doctor or midwife who is able to do a physical exam.

10 years of experience as a midwife

The midwife, who’ll be answering questions in the twin forum, is Ditte Toft Heskjær. She’s been working as a midwife for nearly 10 years. After a few years assisting first time mums delivering singletons, she is now working in a Danish hospital team designated to women pregnant with twins. This team consists of 3 midwives who follow the pregnant women throughout their twin pregnancies. They are present during the whole birth and delivery of the babies.
“This ensures a high level of expertise and professionalism. It’s also my experience that this set-up makes the pregnant woman and her partner feel more at ease about the pregnancy and up-coming birth,”  says Ditte Toft Heskjær.

Please visit the about-twins.com twin pregnancy forum and twin birth forum, and ask your questions. You’re also more than welcome to visit and help answer questions from soon-to-be mothers and fathers of twins.
