I live in Ireland and Last year, My 7th i gave birth to my dd at a great hospital. This year however, a really awful thing happened there and it was on the news this week. A lady went into labour. She was told all through her pregnancy she was having twins, so when she got to the hospital things got going. She gave birth to her first baby naturally, then she went for a section to deliver twin 2. The doctors started to peform the operation only to find that there was no baby in there! How can anyone make such a mistake? The poor woman, was not carrying twins after all, just one baby! I could not beleive it as at every antenatal appointment, you see a different doctor. In irend you get at least two scans. Usually, if theres twins, theres two heartbeats and two feotus'. I think it is horrendous! The woman must be distraught. Poor woman.
