Background- Compared to a singleton pregnancy, a twin pregnancy is a relatively uncommon event significantly associated with higher maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality rates. Every obstetrician needs to be aware of the risks associated with twin pregnancies as well as how to manage these risks.


Aims and Objectives-To study obstetric complications in twin pregnancy.


Methods- A total of 106 patients with sonographically confirmed twin pregnancies who visited the antenatal care outpatient department (ANC OPD) and labor and delivery at a tertiary care hospital over the course of 24 months were enrolled in this study. They were then monitored through delivery and into the neonatal period.

Results- In this study, twin pregnancies were slightly more in multigravida.  Around 56% were above 30 years of age, and DCDA twins were more common accounting for 76.4%.  Major obstetric complications were anemia accounting for 52.83%, PIH which was 42.36%, and most of the deliveries were preterm which was seen among 87.7% of the total delivered.

Conclusion- Twin pregnancies are a high-risk factor for both the mother and the fetus. Regular ANC care and prompt action are necessary, to minimize and thus, prevent these obstetric complications.
