We describe our aggressive management of a woman with a triplet pregnancy resulting from in vitro fertilization who presented at 22 weeks' gestation in labor with full cervical dilation. Successful multiagent tocolysis and delayed delivery of the two remaining fetuses after delivery of the presenting fetus led to an improved outcome for all three babies.
