Preterm birth – Babies are not fully developed during delivery which may cause low birth weights or defects
Anemia – mothers need two times more iron to support multiple pregnancies
Twin-twin transfusion – An imbalance in the transfer of blood between identical twins, where one receives more than the other and can cause developmental issues with one of the babies.
Cesarean delivery – With two babies inside the uterus, it is harder for them to be in the right position during delivery.
Bleeding – It can occur in the vagina and cervix, which are caused by different factors such as:
- Early opening of the cervix (Incompetent Cervix)
- The placenta separates from the uterus and limits oxygen and nutrients supply for the babies (Placental abruption)
- The placenta covers the cervix which makes delivery through the vagina harder (Placenta Previa)
