Twins Together In The Same Amniotic Sac
When a pair of twins share an amniotic sac, all sorts of risks are at stake. First off, when they share the same sac they’re also sharing the same blood flow and aren’t protected from bumping into one another, due to the absence of a wall. Second, when two umbilical cords are in the same sac, the risk of entanglement is huge. The umbilical cord is vital for each baby’s health, as the cord bring them oxygen and nutrients.
