It was heartbreaking really - I was already worried that they were monoamniotic
(where twins share an amniotic sac), and conjoined was the worstcase scenario.

In 2014, an ACOG technical bulletin advised cesarean delivery for all monoamniotic
twins, a recommendation in line with those in Canada and France.

It meant a difficult monochorionic monoamniotic
(MoMo) pregnancy for mum Danielle, 28, from Stockton, who had to be monitored three times a day every day due to them sharing the same amniotic sac -although they did not realise they were mirrorimage until after the birth.
You see Jillian and Jenna Thistlethwaite are the literal embodiment of a very rare and special kind of ment of a very rare and special kind of identical twindom called monoamniotic
twins, or "mono mono" for short, and they've been sharing the same amniotic sack and placenta in their mummy's tummy during their entire time on the inside.
twins are incredibly rare and occur in 1% of such births.
twins or often referred to as "Mono Mono" are identical twins who share both a placenta and an amniotic sac, but have separate umbilical cords.
twin pregnancy: a review of contemporary practice.
Chorionicity was classified as: dichorionic diamniotic (DCDA), monochorionic diamniotic (MCDA) and monochorionic monoamniotic
With informed consent, we recruited 8 twin pregnancies, including 4 sets of DCDA twins, 3 sets of monochorionic diamniotic (MCDA) twins, and 1 set of monochorionic monoamniotic
(MCMA) twins (Table 1).
Emma Canning's daughters, Hannah and Sophie, were monoamniotic
twins who shared the same birth sac and placenta.
