Maternal risks of a multi-fetal pregnancy include hypertension, preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, and postpartum hemorrhage (Multifetal Pregnancy Reduction, 2013). Maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality increase with each fetus. The most common method of fetal reduction is trans-abdominal multi-fetal pregnancy reduction.
