The healing path. The death of a womb twin

There are many ways in which a twin may die in the womb or around birth.  There are three whole chapters devoted to the death of one twin in my book "Womb Twin Survivors: the lost twin in the Dream of the womb.."

Here is a list

Death around birth

Stillbirth
Neonatal death
Separation of siamese twins
The twins body leaves from the womb during pregnancy

Total miscarriage of one twin
Abortion causing total miscarriage of one twin









The twin's body remains in the womb 

A vanishing twin pregnancy - in utero death and disappearance of one twin in the first trimester (fetal resorption)
Fetus papyraceous
Abortion leading to death one twin in the womb
Molar pregnancy

The twins body remains within the body of the survivor

Parasitic twin
Fetus in fetu
Teratoma
Dermoid Cyst
Chimera
Mozaic

The death of a twin in the Dream of the Womb  leaves a very specific memory and that memory includes details of how the twin died. Until that memory is clear, healing is blocked or delayed in definitely. But in the back of your mind the idea will grow and grow as the picture puzzle that is your Dream of the Womb falls into place.  The idea of twins will get stronger in your mind every day.

One womb twin survivor told me:
You would not believe the number of times that 'twins' are coming into my life right now, randomly, and repeatedly in conversations with other people.
