Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is so special about twins?

The bond between twins is unique and often mesmerizing. Their relationship is so special that 40% of twins create their own language to communicate with each other. This is not surprising since the babies begin interacting in the womb at 14 weeks (1). Thus, they may share a stronger bond than regular siblings.

2. Is it harder to bond with twins?

Bonding with twins can be more challenging since you have to divide your time with each infant. Also, caring for twins requires double the effort, which may leave you fatigued quite often. However, with adequate support from your partner and family, you can gradually develop a strong bond with your twins.

3. Do mothers of twins live longer?

Yes, women with twins may live longer than those who deliver single children. This is because healthier women have a higher chance of delivering twins and not because having twins improves your health (2).
