If Your Twins Were Born This Week

Your twins are very early preterm and the odds of survival are better than weeks past. However, twins born during the 25th week still risk major medical complications and life-long health issues.

What to Prepare This Week

When Mom is 25 weeks pregnant with twins, make sure you’ve done some research and found the best car seats for your twins. You won’t be able to bring them home from the hospital if you don’t have car seats.
