This wonderful video is essential viewing for parents expecting a multiple birth. Mothers and fathers share a whole range of facts and feelings, including hopes and fears during pregnancy, the practicalities of caring for twins and triplets, developing routines, seeking help, preserving relationships and coping with the effect on other siblings. Scenes of births, both vaginal and by caesarean are shown and there is a very positive emphasis on breastfeeding (bottle feeding is mentioned). It is an honest, moving, and realistic account, showing families in a variety of settings struggling and delighting in the arrival of their babies.
