Sample Talks (1)

My twin died before I was born: how can I know and how does that feel?

An illustrated talk about how it feels to be a womb twin survivor ( ie to lose one's twin before or around birth.) This is a very common occurrence that is rarely discussed. It may affect many thousands of people, without them being aware that they once had a twin. The presentation includes details of the physical signs that there had been a twin pregnancy but only one baby was born. Also a psychological profile of the womb twin survivor. Based on an eight-year research project .
