Throughout the month of May we are putting the spotlight on Women, Babies and Children and important services in our district that serve these important groups within our community.
An interesting and concerning trend affecting this vulnerable group is the increase in the number of premature twin births across New South Wales.
Today we are joined by Dr Jonathan Morris AM, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Sydney and Kolling Institute Director of Women and Babies Research. Dr Morris discusses the impact of premature delivery on babies, why we are seeing this trend and the research championing a change in the way we approach a twin pregnancy versus a singleton pregnancy.
We are also joined by Ashlee Tenberge, chairperson of the Australian Multiple Birth Association (AMBA), a support service for families with multiple births.
