Due to the increased availability of infertility treatment, multiple pregnancies, with various resulting complications have become more common. A woman in the 19th week of a triplet pregnancy came to the hospital after the miscarriage of one of the fetuses at home. In keeping with our philosophy of minimal intervention in childbirth, we treated the woman conservatively. After confirming that the remaining two fetuses were in good condition, the woman was released home under ambulatory observation, with no antibiotics or tocolytic drugs. No further complications developed, and the woman gave birth in her 31st week to healthy twin girls 82 days later. The successful outcome of this case demonstrates that non-interventional, conservative methods could be a feasible alternative to invasive intervention. We hope that our case will encourage more physicians to try out and report noninterventional methods, so that enough information could be gathered to help make correct management decisions in the future.
