This rise was associated with older maternal age and the increased use of fertility-enhancing therapies (4,5) and was of concern because of the greater risk of adverse outcome of triplet and higher-order births compared with singletons and the added toll of these pregnancies on maternal health (6). Since 1998, however, this trend has edged downward (3).
