Expecting the twin refers to the doubling of changing diaper that means doubling of fun and delight. But what about the complications experienced during pregnancy? Will it be a cause of harm to any of your unborn babies?
Complications Associated with Twin Pregnancy:
Pregnancy complications are being increased due to the additional fetus carried by the womb; these complications are very hazardous and life-threatening to both the fetuses and the mother as well.
You can experience following 12 types of complications during the twin pregnancy.
1. Placental Abruption
This abruption occurs more commonly in the twin pregnancy as compared to the single one. Pre-eclampsia causes the membrane rupturing leading to the placental abruption. Here placenta gets detached from the uterine wall before the onset of delivery. This usually occurs during the 3rd trimester of pregnancy. It enhances the chances of the vaginally positioned delivery of the first baby.
Main causes discussed by the medical practitioners involved are malnutrition, smoking, and the intake of harmful drugs. Proper parental care and intake of a balanced diet can help to easily overcome this abruption.
2. Low-Birth Weight
This low birth weight is generally associated with preterm delivery. Baby is almost <5.5 pounds (2500 grams) in weight. Due to this reason, twin babies are at higher risk of long-term health complications.
These risks involve vision problem, hearing problems, mental retardation, and cerebral palsy.
