How Multiple Pregnancies Affect Your Body

There are no known studies that effectively determine how many pregnancies it takes for extensive changes to be done to the body—some women experience major changes that require surgery with just one pregnancy; others don’t notice differences in their bodies until child number three or four. “Since every woman’s body is different it is hard to gage exactly when and where the post-pregnancy changes occur. My impression is that most women have similar pregnancies, in terms of how the body is affected, and some of the long-term changes endured can be cumulative,” Orange County, CA, plastic surgeon Al Aly, MD explains. Adds New York plastic surgeon Elie Levine, MD, “the more pregnancies, the more the skin and muscles get stretched.”
