Questions to ask at your antenatal check up

7th September 2018 

When you first find out you’re expecting multiples, hundred of questions may spring to mind. Chances are it’s all a bit of a blur and you forget to ask them so we’ve come up with a list of questions you may want to ask at your next checkup.

  • What is the hospital procedure for multiple births?
  • Who will be looking after me?
  • How often will I be seen? And where?
  • Who will be there for the birth of my babies?
  • What antenatal tests will I have and are there any risks?
  • What type of foods should I be eating and how much?
  • What exercises/sports can I do? Are there any I should stop doing?
  • Can I go on holiday overseas?
  • When should I stop travelling?
  • What level of neonatal care is available? Is it possible to have a tour?
  • Are there midwives or other staff who specialise in supporting mothers of multiples with feeding?
  • Who should I contact if I have questions outside of my checkups?
