When a twin dies before birth, the sole survivor needs help and understanding. Womb twin survivors are the sole survivors of a twin or multiple pregnancy. This group, 1 in 10 of the population, includes survivors of a stillbirth, miscarriage, abortion and a "vanishing twin" pregnancy. It is a story of a twin bond broken by death, leaving a lonely survivor.

What makes you think you are a womb twin survivor?
I have no proof, and about half the people who contact me don't have proof, or have no one to ask. I know that I am a womb twin survivor like I know my own name. It's as profound and real as that. My story is the epilogue in "A Silent Cry: womb twin survivors tell their stories". [Read it here.]
