Synopsis: Written by a team of experts, this is the ultimate reference for the expectant mother of twins, explaining everything a parent needs to know for the pregnancy, birth and first year. The book describes the fascinating ways that identical and non-identical twins are conceived, how your pregnancy might develop and how to deal with the extreme symptoms often associated with a twin pregnancy. There is up-to-date information on current antenatal tests and how they work and are performed when two babies are being carried. How your babies present in the womb can affect your options of delivery. With contemporary artworks this is fully explained, as well as the birth itself and what happens if you go into premature labour. Many expectant mothers worry about how they will feed two babies; the book provides all the information to enable a mother to understand her options fully. Subjects such as whether the babies should sleep together or apart, how to manage getting out and about and looking after yourself in this busy time are also covered. There are case studies from real parents and medical advice from twin consultants making this a practical, emotional and professional guide to support you in this joyous yet overwhelming time. One Born Every Minute is a Bafta award-winning Channel 4 reality TV series documenting the day-by-day experiences of pregnant mothers and their families in the labour ward of a major teaching hospital. The 4th series of the show is currently on air, regularly attracting viewing figures of almost 3 million. The 5th series is already commissioned for broadcast on C4 in January 2014. The UK series is shown on two channels in Australia and franchise series have been sold to France, the US and Germany so far.
