Wondering how many of you had twins who needed to be in the NICU?

I am 30 weeks pregnant with identical twins. So far they are looking great on all tests etc. The hospital my Dr delivers at doesn't have an NICU. So lately my husband and I have been having a lot of concerns about what may happen if they do end up needing special care. I don't want to get separated from them, So I am curious how many had twins that ended up needing special care?

That's the issue. If they need special care they would transport them to another hospital. I wouldn't be transfered in less I needed special care also. That's why we are thinking we need to delivery at a different hospital.

    My twins are identical which adds more risk to the pregnancy and delivery. There is a big chance they won't have any issues at delivery. There is still a chance though they could need special care. I would rather be safe and deliver at a hospital that can handle any situation.

      That's what my concern is. The hospital closest to my house doesn't have an nicu and from friends I have spoken with they are very quick to transfer babies. Even if the issue is minor.
