The Unveiling Of The Ultrasound
After careful review of the ultrasound, doctors at the British Columbia Women’s Hospital & Health Centre found out that the twins Lisa were carrying were not normal twins but Monoamniotic-Monochorionic (“MoMo”) twins.
Monoamniotic-Monochorionic (“MoMo”) Twins
Monochorionic-Monoamniotic twins are caused by an already fertilized egg that embeds itself into the uterus and then splits into two eggs, which then turns into twins. Often called “MoMo twins”, the chances of a pregnancy like this are 1 in 60,000, making Lisa’s pregnancy with her twins a very rare occurrence.
