Preterm delivery remains the most important complication of multiple pregnancies. We describe six cases of successful delay of the subsequent child(ren) after very preterm birth of the first-born, with intervals ranging between 14 and 117 days. Based on our findings and on the available literature, we propose a set of guidelines for the management of early preterm multiple birth deliveries, including tocolysis, antimicrobial therapy and corticosteroids.
