Synopsis: Did you just discover that you are pregnant . . . with twins, triplets or more? Are you wondering how you will cope caring for more than one baby?  Multiples Illuminated dives deep into the world of raising multiples with beautiful stories and helpful advice. In it, you will find essays on:  · Infertility help and hope · Finding out and coping with a multiples pregnancy · Stories of labor and delivery · Stories from the NICU · Breastfeeding best practices for multiples · Surviving the infant and toddler stages Multiples Illuminated is a compelling collection of stories from writers and parents of multiples, as well as expert advice that is a must-have for all parents and grandparents of multiples. Having multiples is one of the most wonderful and challenging experiences you will have in your life. Whether you're expecting multiples or a few years into the multiples club, you will find stories you love in Multiples Illuminated. The following writers contributed to the Multiples Illuminated: Foreword By: Susan Sailor Pinsky Contributors: Allie Smith, Janine Kovac, Janet McNally, Lexi Rohner, Shanna Silva, MeiMei Fox, Briton Underwood, Ellen Nordberg, Allie Capo-Burdick, Jackie Pick, Kirsten Brewer Gant, Susan Moldaw, Melanie Sweeney, Amy Paturel, M.S., M.P.H., Becki Melchione, Eileen C. Manion, Jared Bond, Shelley Stolaroff Segal, Angie Kinghorn, Erika Sigurdson, Alison Lee, Megan Woolsey 

From the Author: When co-author Megan Woolsey was only eight weeks pregnant with triplets, she was filled with fluctuating emotions. One day she was ecstatic that her heartbreaking years of infertility were finally over, the next day she was scared about how she would take care of three babies at once. Some days she was proud that she would be a mom of multiples, the next she was awake in the middle of the night worrying that she would never get to travel outside her town again.

Being pregnant with multiples is a challenging experience. It's beautiful and exciting. It's also terrifying and a test of physical endurance. All the concerns, pains and aches of pregnancy are multiplied. The huge belly. The pressure on the chest when lying down. The kicks and jabs on all parts of your belly, chest and pelvis. The enormous appetite, yet the lack of space in the stomach.  The very real fear of preterm labor and the possibility of a NICU stay for the babies.
 
The questions also multiply: How will I deliver two/ three/ four babies? What will the NICU experience be like? How will I breastfeed more than one baby? Will I ever sleep again? How will I care for the twins/ triplets/ quads? Will I have help?
 
Newly pregnant women have many questions, and they can usually find them in books. Newly pregnant women with twins/ triplets/ quads have even more questions and find themselves floundering for information, support and help. We want to be excited, but the unknown creeps up like a cold breeze on a hot summer day. People usually do not know what to say to us.
 
With a lack of knowledge about carrying and raising multiples, we began searching for answers. We scoured the Internet looking for books to teach us about raising multiples. Megan taped every show she could find on the Discovery Channel about multiples. Eight years ago there was not enough good information, but she bought everything she could find (five books in total).
 
Alison Lee, mom of twins, and Megan Woolsey conceived Multiples Illuminated to shed light (see what we did there?) on the world of raising multiples. How we would have appreciated a book like Multiples Illuminated when we were pregnant with our multiples, wondering what life would be like for us.
 
We wanted to write this book to offer the parents of multiples around the world something delicious to indulge in. There are words of wisdom and personal stories that we hope will inspire you and make you proud to be a part of the world of multiples.
 
If you read Multiples Illuminated and feel optimistic, inspired, informed, and connected about raising multiples, we have done our job. We are a community of parents who need to think outside the box to successfully raise two or more children simultaneously.
 
In this book are stories that will make you laugh, and stories that will make you cry, sprinkled with helpful advice and journal prompts for you to tell your own hearts' story.
 
Thank you for trusting us to join your multiples adventure; we hope they illuminate you.
