This condition can be life-threatening for twins, because when blood moves from one twin to another it can significantly reduce the supply of blood on the other one. This can result in one twin not growing normally with paleness, anemia and dehydration or even death due to malnourishment. On the other hand the twin that receives more blood may be born larger because he/she gets more nutrients than the other. It has further been claimed that TTTS can also cause stroke or hemorrhage in one or both of the twins’ brains.
Apparently, the footage shows the twins fighting inside pushing for space in their mother’s womb. Well they are not actually literally fighting, they are just moving like normal babies, it’s just they don’t have as much room to move.
“What this lets us do is see their positions in relation to each other and how much space they occupy, and how they might move around and push each other out of the way” Dr. Marisa Taylor-Clarke said.
