What are mono mono twins?
Mono mono twins are identical twins who develop in a single amniotic sac and share the same placenta. You may hear the terms “mono-mono twins” or “momo twins” which mean the same thing and are short for monoamniotic-monochorionic twins (meaning the same placenta, same sac).
This refers to a single chorion (the outer membrane surrounding an embryo) and a single amniotic sac (the bag of water that contains the fetuses). This situation is extremely rare and may cause risk to the babies due to cord entanglement and other issues. This is why Mono Mono twins are considered a high-risk pregnancy.
What is the difference between mono mono twins and identical twins?
Mono mono twins, or monoamniotic twins, are a rare type of identical twin who shares the same amniotic sac and the same placenta. Both mono mono twins and identical twins originate from the SAME egg but the KEY difference is this…
Identical twins are sometimes referred to as mo/di twins who share one placenta but only a membrane separates the two babies. Whereas mono mono twins have zero separation…they share EVERYTHING in the womb, the same placenta, and the same amniotic sac.
You may also hear the term di/di twins which are also known as fraternal twins who each have their own placenta and own amniotic sac.
What is considered a high-risk pregnancy?
A high-risk pregnancy is any pregnancy that has a greater chance of complications or problems due to various factors like age (such as being over 35), medical history, preexisting conditions, multiples (like twins, triplets, etc.), and lifestyle choices.
Although high-risk pregnancies need to be monitored more closely and may require additional tests and procedures, it doesn’t mean that the outcome will be a negative one. With proper prenatal care and guidance, high-risk moms can still have safe deliveries of healthy babies!
To Wrap It Up
Dealing with a high-risk pregnancy can be stressful for both moms and dads—but knowing what to expect can help you feel more prepared for what’s ahead.
If you’re expecting mono mono twins, keep in mind that while complications are possible, they don’t always occur. With close monitoring by your healthcare team, most babies go on to healthy lives outside the womb, which is exactly what happened with our momo twin girls!
