As this is a High-risk condition in a mother so antenatal, intranatal, and postnatal vigilance are essential.

– Skilled persons
– I/V infusion or cross-matched blood
– Vaginal delivery only with Diamniotic pregnancies rest needed CS
– TTTS Interventions

Multiple Pregnancy Varieties & Incidences
In this video, Multiple gestations are explained with their Varieties & Incidences.
Multiple Pregnancy is the development of 2 or more fetuses at the same time in a pregnancy.
The most common variety is Twin pregnancy in which Dizygotic Twin is the commonest one. It is found in 80% of conditions.
In Dizygotic Twin (Fraternal, Non-Identical, Binovular Twin) develops from the fertilization of 2 ova release in the same menstrual cycle with 2 sperm cells. The sex of the baby may differ and there is 2 Placenta with 4 intervening membranes.
In Monozygotic Twin (Identical, Uinovular Twin) develops from the fertilization of 1 ova with 1 sperm cells that split to form 2 fetuses. The sex of the baby is always the same and there are 4 varieties depends on when the splitting occurs-
1. Dichorionic and Diamniotic (D/D) – Splits after Fertilization within 72 hrs.
2. Monochorionic and Diamniotic (M/D) – Splits within 4-8 days
3. Mochorionic and Monoamniotic (M/M) – Splits after 8 Days
4. Conjoined Twin – Splits after 2 weeks.
Incidences – Monozygotic 1 in 250 cases
Dizygotic varies by Race, Age, Increasing Parity, Hereditary
