Patients with multiple gestations, low-lying placentas, velamentous cord insertions, and history of assisted conception should be evaluated carefully for a vasa previa. Serial surveillance for signs of preterm labor and elective cesarean delivery at 34 to 35 weeks after corticosteroids for fetal lung maturity is a reasonable management strategy for vasa previa in multiple gestations.
