6. Preterm Labor or Delivery
The delivery that occurs before completing 37 weeks of pregnancy is termed as preterm delivery.
This causes a decrease in length of gestation period due to the additional fetus in the womb. This gives a ride to the ruptured premature ovarian membranes that lead to the starting of labor before 37 weeks of pregnancy.
Hence, the body of premature twins is unable to develop properly containing immature organs, small-sized babies and lesser in weight. The baby requires medical aid for everything; still, they remain vulnerable to the infectious microorganisms. They are then given special care in NICU “neo-natal intensive care unit”.
Almost 60% of twin pregnancy risks end up with the preterm delivery as per concluded by the researchers.
7. Birth Defects
Congenital anomalies are increased in twin pregnancies. The most common birth defects being experienced during pregnancy are neural tube defection, spina bifida, heart abnormality, and gastrointestinal disorders.
8. Post-partum Hemorrhage
Postpartum hemorrhage is developed due to the higher involvement of over distended uterus and a larger area of the placenta.
This can be a cause of the extreme leveled bleeding during and after the session of delivery.
