Abstract

As I sat in the dining room of the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology on Vine Street in Dallas working on this column, I reflected back on the day's structured case questions in the oral exam and thought how fortunate examinees would have been to read BJOG before taking their test that morning. A large portion of the obstetrics test consisted of questions on twinning and the management of women with twin pregnancies, particularly focused on the prevention of preterm birth (PTB) or mitigation of its consequences. While the increased risk of PTB has been long recognised, only recently have evidence-based strategies existed to modify that risk or reduce its sequelae.
