052: The Truth About Carrying Twins During a High-Risk Pregnancy

Having twins sounds cool doesn't it? I've always wished I had a twin! And to be honest, there have been times on our fertility journey when I thought, "Screw it. Let's just transfer 2 embryos. A twin pregnancy can't be harder than the heartbreak of recurring loss or failed cycles, right?" I know so many women feel the same too.

The problem, though, is that we tend to glamorize twin pregnancies as easier than doctors make them out to be, when the reality is that twin pregnancies are high-risk. That means both mom AND babies are at higher risk for developing health complications like preterm labor, preterm contractions, gestational diabetes, preeclampsia and so much more.

On this episode, I'm so glad that twin mom, Brittany Dixon, joins us to share her real, raw experience of carrying her twin girls so you know what to prepare yourself for when/if you're pregnant with twins too.
