Wonder Twins Miraculously Survive Birth!!!

Wonder Twins Miraculously Survive Birth

Sometimes it seems like twins share everything, but usually not amniotic sacs!

Kate and Annie Carlson are monoamniotic twins, meaning they suffered from a rare disorder in which they didn't get their own individual amniotic sacs and were forced to share one!

Delivery team leader Dr. Susan Crowe says:

"Having a set of monoamniotic twins can be dangerous and unpredictable. With no membrane dividing them, the obstetrician has to balance the risk of prematurity with the risk of a cord event."

Unfortunately, that's exactly what happened.
