National Maternity and Perinatal Audit – Maternity Care for Women with Multiple Births and Their Babies

Reports | Published: 13 Aug 2020

Approximately 3% of all babies are born from multiple pregnancies. Multiple pregnancies are associated with an increased risk of adverse maternal and neonatal outcomes.

This sprint audit report focuses on the maternity care for women with multiple births during the period 1 April 2015 to 31 March 2017 and their babies.

The objectives of this report are to:

  • determine the feasibility of undertaking a national audit of maternity and perinatal care for women with multiple births using NMPA methodology, including an assessment of data quality and linkage
  • assess variation in care processes and outcomes in relation to the existing clinical guidelines for multiple pregnancy, where possible
  • provide recommendations to improve feasibility of evaluating the care of women with multiple births.
