Reducing Risk in Twin Pregnancies

In the first half of the webinar Dr. Nathan Fox will cover twin pregnancies and potential ways to reduce risk of adverse outcomes in women pregnant with twins. It is well-known that all twin pregnancies are at increased risk of pregnancy complications such as preterm birth, preeclampsia, fetal growth restriction, and cesarean delivery. However, strategies to mitigate these risks often differ across prenatal providers including midwives, obstetricians, and maternal fetal medicine specialists.

Dr. Fox plans to review the evidence supporting certain interventions intended to reduce risk in twins and provide recommendations for how to care for women with twin pregnancies, and how these interventions can be effective and practical for a wide range of prenatal care settings. He may also sprinkle in a few jokes, so be on the lookout for those!

In the second half of the webinar Dr. Andrei Rebarber will cover some unique aspects in the management and treatment of monochorionic twin gestations. Additionally, we will discuss the current literature on fetal pregnancy reduction (elective and selective approaches) in dichorionic twin gestations and its impact on birth outcomes for the pregnancy.
