In 2006, triplet births occurred at the rate of 153.5 out of every 100,000 births (Martin et al., 2009), or about 3 percent of live births. Overall, the number of triplet births appeared to have peaked in 1998, with the number of triplets and higher number multiple births up a total of 400 percent since 1980 (Martin et al., 2002).The increased use of fertility treatments by women having a more difficult time becoming pregnant or by those waiting until the age of 30 to become pregnant partly explains the trend of triplet or multifetal conceptions (Greenfeld, 1997; Nelms, 2007; Strong, 2003; Weigel, Auxier, & Frye, 2000). Although singleton and multiple births share some similarities, there are some striking physical, psychological, economic, ethical, and medical differences (Leonard & Denton, 2006; Miller, Ransom, Shalhoub, Sokol, & Evans, 2000; Pector, 2005). For example, multiple-birth infants are often born premature and require hospital care during the first weeks of life (Auslander, Netzer, & Arad, 2003; Martin et al., 2002; Price, 1990; Strong, 2003).Also, parents of triplets are at risk for parenting problems (Holditch-Davis, Roberts, & Sandelowski, 1999), and the risk of negative impacts on the infants increases because they are born as multiples (Feldman & Eidehnan, 2004).
