What are the common complications of twin pregnancy?

by Jessica Roberts Self Employed
Getting pregnant with twin babies is a matter of double happiness to some couples. But very few people are aware of the complications that may occur in a twin pregnancy. This article by the most recommended private ultrasound scan clinic in Leicester reveals some common complications that get prominent in a twin pregnancy. Have a look at the following discussion. 

5 common twin pregnancy complications you must be aware of: 

    1. Preterm labor and premature birth

Numerous twin pregnancy cases have witnessed preterm labor and premature birth of twin babies. Medical survey reports show that more than 60% of twin babies take birth before the 37th week of pregnancy. In some cases, the babies become vulnerable and suffer from shortness of breathing, and other problems. 

    2. Gestational hypertension

Women who are pregnant with two or more babies are more likely to have gestational hypertension because of high blood pressure. Women carrying twin babies inside their wombs generally possess higher blood pressure levels than women who carry only one child inside their wombs. Gestational hypertension often causes an early detachment of the placenta and therefore the pregnancy becomes more complicated. 

    3. Anemia

Anemia becomes automatically prominent when a woman starts to nurture two or more lives inside her womb. Hence, it is not so surprising if a woman who is carrying two babies has an acute problem of anemia. 

    4. Birth defects

Twin babies tend to have more chances of birth defects than single babies. Gastrointestinal problems and heart abnormalities are more or less common in twin babies. 

    5. Twin-to

Twin Transfusion Syndrome- In Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome or TTTS, blood is moved on from one fetus to the other through blood vessel connections in a shared placenta. Eventually, the adopting fetus takes in too much blood, which can overload the cardiovascular system and cause too much amniotic fluid to develop. But, the donor fetus does not hold sufficient blood and endures a handful of amniotic fluid. 

Apart from these above-mentioned 5 complications, there are more issues in a twin pregnancy. Hence, it is better to start the treatment earlier. For that, enlighten yourself with the fact whether you are having a single baby pregnancy or a twin pregnancy by going through an early pregnancy scan
