RCOG statement in response to the NGA report on twin pregnancy costs

The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists’
Year of publication

The report shows that twin births are almost three times as expensive as singleton births; the average cost to the NHS is £13,959 for a twin birth, while a singleton birth costs £4,892. The report notes that multiple pregnancy rate has significantly increased since the introduction of IVF and calls on CCGs to ensure single embryo transfer to reduce the multiple birth rate. This would reduce health risks for mother and babies, improve safety and quality of care, and lead to significant savings for the NHS.
