Women report feeling overwhelmed and worried about the thought of having multiple infants and their capacity to care for them (Fisher, 2006) Multiple births within a family can have a great effect on the parents, babies and siblings, both socially and emotionally. A 2009 study on the incidence of maltreatment in multiples found that 53% of all multiples were found to have at least one form of maltreatment. It was evidenced by the results that maltreated multiple birth children were considerably more at risk than single birth maltreated children to have abdominal trauma, 13% versus 1%, respectively and fractures, 83% versus 39%. Additionally, they were injured at a younger mean age of 12.8 months compared to 34.8 months of single birth children (Lang, Cox, & Flores, 2013). Poor long-term health outcomes have been closely associated with child maltreatment (CM). A study involving an adult community sample in Portugal showed that CM in early life had an extensive negative emotional impact.
