In brief: Two or more babies

Multiple gestation is simply twins, triplets, etc.
In other words, a woman carrying more than one baby.

In brief: More than one

Multiple gestation refers to more than one child in a pregnancy.
..Twins, triplets, quintuplets, septuplets etc are all multiple gestation and can change a pregnancy from low risk to high risk.
