The vanishing twin - a mothers perspective
This is one mother's perspective on a vanishing twin pregnancy. It does make clear that there should be no harm to the sole survivor, who we know will be intelligent, sensitive and possibly an unusually gifted child.
It is important for parents to bear in mind the possibility that their little child is carrying a vague memory of something missing. This is why we started the womb twin kids project.
Its very important for parents to start talking about the missing twin when their sole survivor is very young.
This special little book can help. It's about two little birds who hatched out of the same egg, but only one of them was strong enough to fly...
Details and ordering
What do you think? Should parents ever mention it or would it be best to stay quiet on the subject?
