As the number of multiple births has steadily risen over the past 20 years, twins and triplets form an increasingly large proportion of the preterm population. This causes a number of stresses to their families. Addressing the cause of the epidemic of iatrogenic multiple births is the most effective way to reduce the number of preterm infants and the long-term problems to which they are prone.
