Multiple Births Twins

Uk Kindergarten Class Seeing Double 9 Times

There has been such an explosion in multiples in last few years, it’s not uncommon to see twins anymore.

So common that a UK school has an overabundance of them.

Some teachers at Colchester Elementary school have been seeing double in recent days and also seeing triple on occasion. Principal Jacqueline Samberg says this year there are nine sets of twins and one set of triplets in the school’s two kindergarten classes.

“Twenty-one students out of 223 in the two kindergarten sessions,” Samberg said.

Dr. Ed Finai, chief of obstetrics at Yale-New Haven Hospital, said multiple births are more common nowadays.

“Multiple births have increased about 70 percent in the last 15 years,” Finai said. “It seemed to peak in about 2000.”

Last year a hospital in Michigan delivered 6 sets of twins in 32 hours!
