Having twins or more?
Welcome to the world of multiple pregnancy. Twins are very special and also require special care. For this reason, families having twins will have pregnancy care, and babies at Monash Medical Centre under the care of the twins unit (Amethyst).
This is the case even if your pregnancy is otherwise ‘low risk’ and you have given birth before.
Small exceptions to the twins unit inclusion include if you are expecting triplets (or more) and women with identical (Monochorionic or Monoamniotic) twins with specific complications including twin-twin transfusion and those who require fetal surgery, who are cared for by the Materno-Fetal Medicine unit.
