Twins & Multiples

Twins and multiples can either be identical or non-identical.

Government statistics indicate that the chances of giving birth to twins in the UK are about one in every fifty births.

This rises if the mother is over 30, undergoing fertility treatment or if either parent is a twin or multiple themselves.

The strong bond and 'special language' of twins and multiples has been a source of fascination and the subject for research studies for many years. But twins and multiples may also experience extremes of sibling rivalry, low self-esteem, jealousy and learning difficulties as well as displaying attention-needing behavioural problems.

While the content of these pages has been written specifically for twins, much of the information is also relevant to other multiple birth children.
