Mum’s agony – which twin should I save?

My client Carmelle was delighted when she discovered she was pregnant with twin girls – until she learned that they had an extremely rare condition. Sharing an amniotic sac and placenta the girls were given just a 50 per cent chance of survival… unless Carmelle chose to save just one twin. Aborting one twin would increase the other’s chances but Carmelle just couldn’t do it. Incredibly, both girls beat the odds and were born healthy. Her story was published in That’s Life magazine and she also appeared on Good Morning Britain.
