7 Tips for a Healthy Pregnancy with Multiples

It’s funny how one’s plans and expectations for life can turn out quite differently than expected! For example, I never dreamed I’d be running a successful blog and online communities from my own home. I also never planned to be an extended breastfeeder, live in one place for 30+ years and marry the first man I ever dated. I also never thought I would become pregnant with triplets. Oh, what a surprise! And how I wish I had known more about how to have a healthy pregnancy with multiples.

7 Tips for a Healthy Pregnancy with Multiples

It can be pretty scary – this multiples stuff. There’s not just one new life, but (in my case, three) new lives to grow and begin making decisions for. So super intense!

Recently we’ve been discussing how to care for your body and baby during pregnancy and delivery – naturally. It can be really tough to discern fact from fiction in what is good and healthy for a pregnancy and delivery because there is so much information out there. And while research for multiples is growing quickly, the information for these pregnancies can still be limited and difficult to find. (I recommend this book and this book for your pregnancy with multiples – and this for breastfeeding multiples!)

So my goal when writing this post for Modern Alternative Mama was to peel back the confusion and break down into chunks how to aim for a healthy pregnancy with multiples – and to do so naturally!

  • Will I need a new/special doctor?
  • What type of foods should I eat? How much?
  • Can I still exercise? Will I end up on bedrest?
  • Will I deliver early? Have premature babies?
  • Why do I feel so alone in my anxiety and this unique experience?
  • Can I continue to breastfeed my toddler during this pregnancy?
  • Will the morning sickness be worse and is there anything I can do to naturally find relief?

I share answers to these questions and more over at Modern Alternative Mama:
